Who Needs to File a Self-Assessment Tax Return?

Some people believe that it is only the self-employed, or those who run a small business as a sole proprietor, need to worry about completing a self-assessment tax return. However, things are not quite that cut and dried.

It’s certainly true that the self-employed – freelancers who are not tied to a single employer in any way, for example – are subject to self – assessment – and those who have yet to convert their fledgling business into an LLC will need to as well. However, you may also need to do so if your income sources are solely derived from any of the following:

  • Rental income
  • Investment income
  • Foreign income
  • Share income
  • Foreign pension income
  • Maintenance payments

You will not, however, need to file a self-assessment tax return if you only receive PAYE income or your non-PAYE income for the year is under a certain amount. Often one of the first things, as self-assessment accountant specialists Pearl Lemon Accountants do for clients is help them determine if they should be filing a self-assessment tax return at all, or if they fall into a different income category that will call for an alternative tax approach.

How Pearl Lemon Accountants Can Help You

Despite official claims to the contrary, self-assessment tax returns are difficult to complete. Many people find navigating HMRC and effectively documenting their income and expenditure challenging.

When it comes to filing your information at the end of the tax year, many business owners spend hours tallying up their numbers and calculating their taxable revenue. And then wondering if they have done everything right, and second guessing all their hard work.

To complicate matters even further, the GOV website isn’t particularly user-friendly, and you’ve undoubtedly had to contact HMRC in the past to figure out where you should be doing what and when.

As a result, we’ll show you how to create a budget that works for you and will be a big help when it comes to making those payments on time.

No More Tax Anxiety and Last Minute Panic

If you’ve been self-employed or operated a business for a while, you’ll be all too familiar with the growing sense of dread as the tax year draws to a close.

Ensure You are Submitting Accurate Information

Many business owners confess that filing their taxes is a bit of a guessing game. Unless you’re a whiz with numbers, it’s possible that the occasional payment or expenditure will slip between the cracks in your HMRC submission.

Our skilled self-assessment accountants will ensure that all of your account payments are correct when you work with Pearl Lemon Accountants. You won’t get in trouble or risk a big fine if you do it this way. But it’s not all about giving HMRC the money they are due, working with us also helps ensure you get all the tax breaks you qualify for.

Thousands of people don’t claim benefits they are entitled to because they simply don’t know they exist, or they are confused about the criteria for claiming them and want to err on the side of caution. Over the past few years, they have often become even more confused about what they can and cannot claim in light of the frequent changes to the tax rules the pandemic has led to.

As we help you file your self-assessment return, we ask questions, and these ensure that you get every penny back you are entitled to and that you only give the taxman exactly what they are owed!
