Painless, fast and done for you. This is tax returns as they should be. No more rip-offs, confusing jargon or worrying about making a mistake. Now 10% off or £107 for Fiverr clients (normally £119).
Nobody likes doing taxes. They’re complicated and the tax jargon is just ridiculous. We’ve partnered with Fiverr to offer a 10% discount for self-employed Fiverr users to get a certified accountant to do your Self Assessment, answer all your tax questions and take it off your plate.
You need to let HMRC know when you become self-employed. It can be a bit confusing doing it yourself, but we can register for you for just £25. Once registered, HMRC will send you a UTR number, or Unique Taxpayer Registration number, in the post. Sleep easy and leave it with us.
The only real downside to self-employment is doing your yearly tax return. You can sort this yourself for free on HMRC, or you can take advantage of a 10% discount with TaxScouts as a Fiverr customer. This means it’s just £107 for a certified accountant to do your tax return and answer all your accounting questions. Downside? Not anymore.
Did you know that there are a number of things that your TaxScouts accountant can help you expense on your tax return?
Your UTR number is a Unique Taxpayer Reference that you get when you register for Self Assessment.
It consists of 10 digits (sometimes with a letter K at the end) and is issued to you by HMRC.
Check out our guide to getting a UTR.
The UK tax year for individuals starts April 6th and ends April 5th of the following year. From then, you have until January 31st to complete your online tax return for the previous tax year.
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.
When it comes to Self Assessment mistakes, we’ve seen them all. Here are a few you’ll want to avoid:
Depending on your situation, you may be entitled to claim different expenses back on your Self Assessment.
If you’re self-employed you can claim expenses individually (full list here) or claim the £1,000 Trading Allowance.
If you’re a landlord, you can claim certain replacement items, renovations and if you live in the property (full list here) or claim the £1,000 Property Income Allowance.
Other general allowances can be found here for investors, high-earners and other taxpayers.
Most people do not need to file a Self Assessment because they are taxed at source. But there are a few reasons you may need to complete a tax return:
It usually depends on how complex your tax situation is.
Our standard is two days from the point where our accountant has all the documents they need from you.
One thing to keep in mind: if this is your first Self Assessment you’ll need to register and get a UTR number first. HMRC can take a few weeks to send it by post – so you should register early.
