Goodbye confusing HMRC processes. Hello easy-to-use tax return platform. Quick, easy and online – we’ve got you covered.
After signing up, tell us why you’re filing and what kind(s) of income you earn. How? Just click the options that apply to you. You can add extra information for your accountant too – the more the merrier (they love the juicy details).
We’ll match you with a tax accountant to sort and file your tax return. You can get in touch with them online with questions or concerns anytime while they’re preparing your tax return.
You can use your phone or laptop to do this. Make sure to give your accountant everything they might need to accurately sort your tax return. You can also go back and add more documents later as you need.
Your accountant will draft your return and hand it to you to review. Once you’ve looked it over and are happy with it, you need to approve it so that they can go ahead and file for you.
As soon as your accountant has your confirmation, they’ll file your tax return online with HMRC. You can check the status of it via your TaxScouts account anytime you like.

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.
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.
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.
We don’t just take you halfway there – TaxScouts is a complete tax return service:
To add more services to your pay-as-you-go tax accountant, just login to your TaxScouts account and select the service you want. You pay for each service separately as you need it.
No strings attached, no monthly fees.
Our accountants can give you advice on your tax situation, but they won’t do tax calculations for you on the call. We’d recommend giving our tax calculators a try if you’re looking for an estimate of your bill.
Otherwise, the best way to find out exactly what you’ll owe HMRC is to file your tax return! Don’t forget, you don’t have to pay your bill when you file. Filing just calculates what you owe based on your income and expenses.
Yes – we always charge £149 per tax return, regardless of your income and reasons why you need to do a tax return.
We charge £149 to all of our customers (the only exception is customers who need to get a tax refund and prefer to have the fee deducted from the refund instead of paying upfront).
Our £149 fee includes:
After your personal, accredited accountant has filed your tax return, all you need to do is prepare to pay your bill or, if you’re due one, wait for your refund.
You can do this either directly on HMRC online or via your TaxScouts account, where we’ll redirect you to HMRC’s payment portal.
