Self Assessment doesn’t need to be painful.
And we mean a few. After a couple of minutes of answering questions online we’ll have everything we need to start preparing your tax return.
That’s right, you’ll be matched with a real accredited accountant who is best suited to prepare your return. Plus, they’re on hand for questions whenever you need.
Once you’ve signed off your return, your TaxScouts accountant will submit your return with HMRC for you.
Got more questions? Ask away! Get in touch with our UK-based support team either on [email protected] or via the live chat on our homepage. They’re happy to help.
There are two main things that set us apart. Firstly, for you, the users. We automate all the admin that accountants usually charge for. This saves them time and means we can pass on any cost savings to you. It also means that we can get your tax return filed in as little as 48hrs, from signup to filing, or your tax advice consultation booked in minutes.
If you’re ready to go, we’re ready to help.
For our accountant partners, our platform is built in a way that means you don’t compete with each other. You don’t bid on clients and never lose out on business to other accountants. The clients are yours, and when they return from previous years, they’re assigned automatically to you.
A UK tax accountant is someone that helps you stay on top of the tax you owe. They are trained in HMRCs rules and regulations so they can advise of everything you need to know about paying your taxes – when, why and how.
If you use our tax returns service, your accountant will work to minimise any tax owed while preparing your Self Assessment. They will use their expertise to claim relevant expenses, allowances and tax reliefs on your tax return.
We also run a one-off tax advice service where we can help you understand your UK personal tax situation. Whether you’re trying to find ways to reduce your tax bill, to improve your future financial position by making the most of relevant tax reliefs, and more – we can help you.

Yes, after you’ve paid your one-off fee, you’ll get an accountant assigned to you, and you can communicate with them freely through our platform or by email.
Of course, if you have any questions beforehand, our support team also is available to help you, free of charge. Here’s how the TaxScouts self assessment tax returns process works.
We can help anyone who needs a hand with their personal UK taxes. We have three services: tax returns, tax advice and both combined. Here are the sorts of tax situations we can help with via these services:
The UK tax year for personal tax returns goes from 6th April to 5th April. For example, the 2022/23 tax year starts on 6th April 2022, ends 5th April 2023 and you have to file and pay your tax bill by 31st January 2024.
If it’s your first time filing, you should make sure that you register for self assessment with HMRC (this basically means letting HMRC know that you’re earning untaxed income) by 5th October 2023.
Want to know more about the important dates to be aware of? We’ve got a guide on it. More tax dates can be found here.
