cheap accountants - payments on account

The deadline for filing an individual’s Self Assessment Tax Return is fast upon us. The final deadline date that must be met to avoid a fine being issued is 31 January 2020 so there are only a couple of weeks remaining.

If you are registered for Self Assessment with HMRC then you must act now.

Extended hours during this period

We have extended our working hours during this period as we are committed to meeting the filing deadline for all clients, both new and old. If you are new client then feel free to send an email to us at as there is still time for us to complete and file your personal Self Assessment Tax Return.

We will be working double our usual hours to ensure that all work is completed up until 31 January. The best part is that our fee for a basic self assessment tax return remains a low £50. We believe that this represents exceptional value for all of our clients.

So, make sure that you have your personal UTR and P45’s/P60 to hand as well other a few other items that we will ask for.

What happens if my Self Assessment Tax Return is submitted late?

If your self assessment tax return is submitted one second after midnight on 31 January you will be fined £100 by HMRC. We don’t want anyone to wake up to this reality during February as it’s simply not worth paying a fine.

What’s worse is that the fine increases if the tax return isn’t filed within three months following the 31 January deadline.

If you have attempted to complete your Self Assessment Tax Return but have reached your wits’ end half way through or simply need help to complete the return, then please get in touch now. Send an email to and you will receive a quick response outlining the information we need and the fee you will be charged should you wish to proceed.

Let’s all have a great start to 2020!
