HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is reminding people that time is running out for registering for self-assessment.
October 5th is the last date for anyone registering self-assessment for the first time – including High Income Child Benefit Charge customers – it will need to be filled in by this date so that they can complete their self-assessment return by January 31st.
HMRC has said that if people are unsure as to whether they need to do self-assessment of not, they should check on the government website – they also have online webchats, live webinars, YouTube videos and social media support for customers, which can be accessed at any time to help them to fill in and file returns.
Angela MacDonald, Director General of Customer Services at HMRC, said, “January may seem a long time away but if you have not done self-assessment before and you are now eligible you need to register [by 5th October].”
She added, “We know that some customers don’t always realise they need to do self-assessment, like those who earn more than £50,000 and receive child benefit, so please check if this applies to you.”
