CPC Finance’s introduction to tax returns

As the end of the current tax year approaches, we thought it was worth quickly recapping the various tax return deadlines and how to print out your calculation and tax year overview from your HMRC account.

Deadline recap:

Each tax year runs from 6 April to 5 April the following year.

Personal self-assessment:

  • Personal self-assessment tax deadline (Midnight 31 October – if you submit via paper tax returns).
  • Personal self-assessment tax deadline (Midnight 31 January – if you submit it online).
  • HMRC will calculate what you owe based on what you report.
  • You must pay the tax you owe by Midnight 31 January.

Corporation tax:

You must pay your Corporation Tax 9 months and 1 day after the end of your accounting period.
