Painless, fast and done for you. This is UK tax returns as they should be. No more rip-offs, confusing jargon or worrying about making a mistake.
Nobody likes doing taxes. They’re complicated and the tax jargon is just ridiculous. We’ve partnered with MyExpatTaxes to offer a 10% discount to get a certified accountant to do your UK Self Assessment, answer all your tax questions and take it off your plate.
You need to let HMRC know when you need to do a Self Assessment 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.
Doing your tax return is usually not the highlight of your year. You can sort this yourself for free on HMRC, or you can take advantage of a 10% discount with TaxScouts as a MyExpatTaxes 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.
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.

When it comes to Self Assessment mistakes, we’ve seen them all. Here are a few you’ll want to avoid:
First, if you’re renting out a buy-to-let, you can only claim mortgage interest – not the full mortgage payments.
Second, starting in 2020 you will get a tax credit worth 20% of your finance costs instead.
What does this mean for you?
