The start of a new year is a busy time for most businesses, especially when the online tax returns deadline is due on January 31st. But do you know who needs to complete a tax return and why? You, yourself may have some questions so here is some advice regarding submitting your online tax return.

Who needs to complete a tax return?

Being a limited company director alone does not mean you have to file a tax return. A contractor, freelancer or self-employed, or an individual who has received additional untaxed income on top of their PAYE.

For some, mostly permanent employees, their tax and NI (national insurance) contribution is already deducted before they receive their pay, therefore they do not need to complete a self assessment tax return.

If any of the following applies to you, then a tax return needs to be completed:

  • You are a director of a company
  • Received income from land or property in the UK
  • Annual income exceeds £100,000
  • Annual income exceeds £50,000 and you or your partner receive Child Benefit payments
