DIY Self-assessment?

Well, we would not advise this but if you do decide you’d rather save some money and do your self-assessment on your own then please check the following:

  • Ensure you include all income sources.
  • Check for capital gains (if you don’t know what this is then hmm get an accountant! – We won’t be mean, give us a call we may be able to offer some free advice – maybe!).
  • Bear in mind that you need to make payment for future earnings – HMRC knows how you spend ha!
  • Make sure you report losses.
  • A brilliant way to do 2 things at once, save on tax and save for the future – Pension Contributions.
  • Are you a tithers or do you make Charitable donations? Call up and get total amount you donated if unsure.
  • What other investments have you made that you could gain tax relief from?
  • Are you moving from self-employed to employed, you could have your tax collected through future PAYE instead…
  • Are you a high income earner? Ensure you tick section on child benefit, pay now or at an inconvenient time.
  • Lastly ensure you get a Confirmation reference!
