You’re not alone. If you’ve got a question we’ve probably heard it before and have an answer. Or we can walk you through what to do.
You can claim pretty much everything that you use “for business”:
For most of these things, you need to calculate what proportion you actually use for your self-employed business.
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 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.
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.
