Paper tax returns a no-no from November


If you haven’t yet sent your 2013/14 tax return to HMRC, remember not to do it on paper – or you’ll end up with a £100 late-filing penalty.

The 31 October paper-filing deadline for 2013/14 tax returns has now passed. Even if you have no tax to pay, or you eventually pay your tax on time, a late paper return will still land you with the £100 penalty.

Now it’s November, the only way to avoid a penalty is by submitting your tax return online by 31 January.

To send an online tax return, you must be registered for HM Revenue and Customs’ (HMRC) Online Services. This involves HMRC sending you an Activation Code in the post, so allow time for this to arrive.

If you haven’t registered for online filing, there is still time and at White Collar Consultants we can help. However bear in mind that you should allow at least 45 working days for your online registration to activate so please do not delay as fines are imminent if you procrastinate.

Remember you can file now and pay later – as long as you pay what you owe by 31 January.

Help and advice on filing your return is available from White Collar Consultants Limited, just use the contact us tab at the top of your screen.
