Self-Assessments – Why Plan Ahead?

Published Date: 28th January 2020


Why Plan Ahead?

A Self-Assessment tax return declares all your income for the tax year, including income that has already been taxed at source. If you have paid too much tax during the year you’re likely to receive a rebate.

The tax year for every individual in the UK runs from 6th April to the 5th April of the following year. Please note that a Self-Assessment tax return is completely separate to a Company tax return.

Making the most of the time in hand early in the new tax year allows individuals to get a handle on how much tax they will owe. This kind of early bird planning will certainly give a power boost to your financial decision making over the coming months and allow you to plan ahead with as much certainty as possible when it comes to budgeting, predicting your cash flow and working out how much you have to invest in assets such as vehicles, equipment or business premises.
