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.
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:
Making Tax Digital (MTD) is an HMRC initiative that is meant to replace annual Self Assessment tax returns by requiring you to report your income and expenses quarterly instead of once per year.
For the 2019/2020 tax year, only limited companies and self-employed people earning over £85,000 and who are already registered for VAT have to join the MTD scheme. So, in reality, most people don’t need to worry about it for a while.
