If you’re running a small business in London, operating as a sole trader or working as a contractor or freelancer, you will need to complete and send a tax return to HMRC, declaring your income and allowing them to assess how much tax you need to pay.

Many people who are new to self employment or running their own business aren’t aware that it’s vital to:

  • Complete their tax return correctly.
  • Submit their tax return before the deadline. This is important because tax returns filed after the deadline can incur penalties from HMRC.

Why do I need a professional to complete my tax return? Can’t I do it myself?

You can, but…

  • Tax can be very complex, but by leaving it to a professional, you can be reassured that your tax return is corrected completely and will be submitted on time – meaning there is no last minute panic or fines to worry about later. Late filing fees can be up to £3,000, and you may also receive an unexpectedly large tax bill if the return wasn’t completed correctly. You will know how much tax is due in advance, leaving you plenty of time to pay your balance to HMRC.
  • A professional accountant will ensure that you’re aware of all the types of expenditure that you can claim against tax. Most business owners don’t realise how much money they could save every year by recording and claiming for all their business expenses, and often don’t know how best to claim them. When we take on a new client at The Accountancy Partnership, it’s very rare for us not to discover ways to reduce their tax bill.
  • You’re less likely to be investigated by HMRC if your return has been filed by a professional.
  • Usually, a professional can complete and file your tax return much more quickly and efficiently than you can – saving you time, money and stress.

Leaving your tax return in the hands of a professional takes the pressure off you, leaving you time to concentrate on what you do best – running and growing your business.
