What is the deadline for filing and paying the tax for my self-assessment tax return?

The deadline for filing a self-assessment tax return in the UK has a formal deadline of 31st January following the end of the tax year if submitting your return electronically (31st October if you want to file via paper).

In terms of paying tax, the main deadline is also the same day, therefore any tax due is to be paid before the 31st January and for those who have higher tax liabilities, a second payment is due by 31st July also.

If your tax liability is under £3,000 and you earn money that is taxed at source i.e. a pension or PAYE income (employed role), you have the option for your liability to be taken from your tax code in the following year. This means that HMRC can take this over a period of time each month from your payslips.

Professional services from GLX, ensure timely submission, help lower your tax liabilities by identifying tax planning opportunities and help you avoid penalties for late filing.
