Normal business activity resumes on 4 January 2016. We are now open again after Christmas. May we wish you a prosperous New Year.
The self-assessment deadline is on 31 January. This is the deadline to submit your tax return electronically if you have traded as a sole trader or in a partnership for the income tax year ended 5 April 2015. You will also need to submit a tax return by the same date if you have had any capital gains for the year ended 5 April 2015, or if you had any other income or you were sent a tax return.
If you have left things this late, you will probably need an accountant to submit the return for you. We advise you to get a move on!
With our technology we can do accounts and tax returns quickly, but this assumes that we do not need to come back to you for further information. A typical example of further information is a hire purchase agreement which often gets overlooked.
Bad weather will not normally be accepted as an excuse by the Revenue, which is obviously of concern after all the flooding. They may make concessions on an individual basis. We will keep an eye on this one.
