Have you spotted the latest Tweets and FB posts from HMRC?
‘Submit online by the 31st January’, they say!
‘Why not do your Self Assessment online today?’, they say!
And if you can manage to trawl through the rest of the endless bumf, it makes the whole process sound as simple as doing your weekly grocery shop online with Tesco or picking up a bargain online at Ebay. https://www.gov.uk/self-assessment-tax-returns. In reality though this is simply not the case.
Sure, If you have already ‘Received your Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR), enrolled for the online service and activated your account using the code you received in the post.’ And of course you have all your receipts, invoices etc. prepared and you’re fully aware of your allowable expenses, capital investments, blah, blah, blah… jump right in and get it done!
Haven’t got these in place hmm? Then may I suggest you might want to hire the services of your local accountant, – us here at CC Associates. It will save you more money and time than you can possibly imagine.
To start with, if you haven’t registered for your online account this can take the average individual up to 10 days to complete. CC Associates are registered HMRC agents and can submit your tax return on your behalf without any of the hassle.
Even if you are uber organised and have all your receipts and invoices filed nicely in month, week, and day order are you 100% sure of what can be claimed for in accordance with the law? You could be losing ££££’s. CC Associates Accountants are members of IPCA (Institute of Certified Practicing Accountants) with Nicola Thomas having recently been awarded Fellowship of IPCA. Their knowledge is 100% current, lawful and immense.
Most importantly, as the old cliché goes ‘Are you running your business or is your business running you?’
Call CC Associates now to take the strain of the dreaded tax return, but don’t leave it too late, only a few New Client appointments remain for January 2020.
