When Does The UK Tax Year End?

Posted by Rob Scott | Posted in HMRC, Self Employed, Tax Return | Posted on 31-03-2012


If you are registered as self-employed the UK tax year runs from 6th April until the 5th April the following year.

All transactions relating to your business during this time should be collated to form your accounts for that period, and the final figures transferred over onto your self assessment tax return.

The deadline for filing the paper copy of your tax return is the 31st October

The deadline for filing your tax return online is the 31st January.

All tax due must be paid by the 31st January, along with any payments on account that you need to make.
