Self Assessment

Preparing and filing your own tax returns can be a long and laborious task that requires alot of time and patience, which is often against you when faced with an impending HMRC deadline. Personal Tax Returns can be very confusing if you’ve never done them before, and if you don’t understand what you’re doing you could run the risk of paying too much tax or incurring an expensive penalty from HMRC for completing your tax return incorrectly or filing it late. So whether you are:

  • Self employed as a sole trader
  • A freelancer or contractor
  • A landlord
  • A Company director
  • A Higher rate tax payer
  • An expatriate
