You’re not alone. If you’ve got a question, no matter how basic, we’ve heard it all before. We can walk you through what to do, or you can check out our guides, Taxopedia and calculators, to find the answer in your own time.
If you’re self-employed, you can get up to £1,000 each tax year as a tax-free allowance. This is called the Trading Allowance.
Not really. Anyone can use the Real Time CGT return for any capital gains (shares, cryptocurrencies, etc.), but only people selling property HAVE to use it – starting from April 2020.
No – unless you also need to file a Self Assessment.
You need to file a Self Assessment if:
It really depends.
Basically, the Real Time CGT return asks you to estimate how much your income will be for the year. If nothing significant changes and you don’t go over/under £50,000 a year (there are different CGT rates if you earn less or more than this), then you don’t need to do a Self Assessment.
However, if you lose a job or get a significant promotion, you might need to file a Self Assessment as well – by January 31st of the second year.
If the value of the coins you got from mining or trading cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum is over £1,000 in GBP equivalent you’ll have to pay tax on your earnings.
HMRC treats cryptocurrency miners as traders, so you need to pay:
If you don’t declare yourself as a trader you will automatically be classified as an investor and have to pay Capital Gains Tax.
The documents we require depend on why you need to do a Self Assessment.
If your only reason to file one is because you’ve gone over the £100,000 earnings threshold, and your only source of income is employment (PAYE), then we only need a P60 (sometimes a P45 as well), and any P11D forms you might have received from your employer.
However, if you already have an HMRC Online Services account, we can simply connect to it and simply pull your information from there. And, in case you’re wondering, we’re authorised by HMRC to do this.
For any other reasons to do a Self Assessment, we have a longer list of documents here.
