With the end of the tax year coming up, HMRC will begin sending their self-assessment reminders on April 5th.

Most people who are on a salary will not need to fill out a return, as their tax is collected via the PAYE system. However, millions of Britons are now either fully self-employed or earn part of their income on a self-employed basis - which means you do need to fill out a tax return.

Even with the best of intentions and a lifetime experience, filling out a tax return can be complicated and time-consuming affair. If you make a mistake or omit information, then you might be subject to penalty charges and will be under serious pressure to sort it out. HRMC agents are unlikely to be sympathetic to the taxpayers point of view.
