Did you file your tax return on Christmas Day?
07/01/2020

A new press release by HMRC has highlighted the fact that 3,003 taxpayers took the time to file their tax return online on Christmas Day with a further 9,254 taxpayers completing their tax returns on Boxing Day. More than 11 million taxpayers are expected to complete a 2018-19 Self-Assessment tax return this year, on or before 31 January 2020.

HMRC’s Director General for Customer Services, Angela MacDonald, said:

'Whether you squeezed it in before tucking into a Christmas pudding, after the Queen’s Speech, or trying to grab a bargain during the festive sales, our online service is available for you to file your tax return at any time you wish.'

If you are filing online for the first time you should ensure that you register to use HMRC’s Self-Assessment Online service as soon as possible. Once registered, an activation code will be sent by mail. This process can take up to 10 working days.

We would encourage our readers to complete their tax return as early as possible to avoid any last-minute stress. The 31 January 2020 filing date looms. Last year, over 700,000 taxpayers didn’t make the required filing deadline.
