What Is Self Assessment

Self Assessment Helpline

HMRC Self-assessment FAQ.

What is self-assessment?

Self-assessment involves taxpayers being responsible for calculating and paying their own tax contribution by an annual tax deadline set by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). If you need to ask any questions call the contact number.

Who has to file a self-assessment tax return?

Everybody who does not use a PAYE tax system has to fill in a self-assessment tax return, including high rate taxpayers and those with income from any property they have.

When should I pay my tax?

Taxpayers usually pay their tax by instalments on the 31st January and 31st July. Any balance that is owed or tax overpaid is calculated at the end of the following January.

Can I pay my tax after the deadline?

If you are late paying your tax you will be fined and interest will be added. A £100 fine is applied if your return is late and another £100 fine is due if the balance is not paid within 6 months. A 5% charge could also be applied if the balance for the previous tax year is not paid by the 28th February and a further 5% charge if it still not paid by the end of July. This fine will never be greater than the amount of tax owed. If you need an extension on filing your tax return call the HMRC and ask the advisor.

Self Assessment Contact 0843 455 0044.

When is the deadline for returning my tax return?

Paper tax returns are due by 31st October after the end of the tax year and electronic returns are due by the following 31st January.

Will HMRC assess my tax return?

Assessments are rare but can be undertaken by HMRC if there is a delay in submitting your tax payment or your return has suspicious expenses. You will receive annual statements from HMRC.

How will HMRC check that my tax return is correct?

Every year some self-assessment returns are selected at random for checking, and if HMRC suspects that your tax return is incorrect they will ask questions to make sure that everything listed on your return is in order. If you have any questions regarding your application, call the HMRC contact number. The HMRC have twelve months from when your return was submitted to inform you that they will be making inquiries about your tax contribution.

How do I prove my tax return is correct?

You should keep all documents and receipts that support the information on your tax return being correct.

HMRC VAT HelplineVAT (Value Added Tax) is a sales tax levied by many governments throughout the world. In the UK, VAT is administered by HMRC, the government’s tax office. HMRC Online Services providing information and support about VAT, are available on the at and are also provide by calling the HMRC on 0843 455 0092.

Value Added Tax applies to many products sold and services provided to consumers in shops, restaurants and numerous other places. Also including most online sales and services since 2014. The amount of VAT paid in the UK has exceeded £100 billion per year.

Sellers and providers of goods and services must register for VAT with the HMRC if their relevant annual turnover exceeds a certain amount. In March 2016 this amount was £82,000. But traders should check the HMRC Online Services or their Helpline Number to see if VAT registration is required. Once registered, a trader will have to pay VAT on goods and services purchased by traders. And will be able to offset this by charging VAT on things sold to his own customers and clients.

In the UK, VAT is calculated as a fixed percentage of the selling price of the items or services. It was introduced in 1973 as a replacement for a 25% Purchase Tax when the UK joined the European Economic Community. And is currently applied to items and services at one of three rates. Standard, Reduced or Exempt. Detailed information on how VAT applies to specific items and services can be found by using the HMRC Online Services. However, a brief overview of the three classes of VAT follows.

VAT Contact Number 0843 455 0092.

The Standard rate of VAT is currently set at 20% (March 2016). So as to conform with other members of the European Union and applies to the majority of items and services sold in the UK. The Reduced rate of VAT, currently 5%. Applies to a restricted set of goods and services the most notable being energy supply to homes and businesses, (gas, electricity and so forth). Items and services that are Exempt from VAT cover notable areas such as food, publications and financial services and also other areas.

The laws and rules surrounding VAT and VAT rates can and do change. Current information on VAT is available on the HMRC Online Services and via the HMRC contact number relevant to the question you have to ask.

What is PAYE?

HMRC PAYE HelplinePAYE stands for “Pay As You Earn” and is the main way that the United Kingdom government collects Income Tax from people’s salaries. The government department responsible for the collection of Income Tax is Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (“HMRC“). HMRC operates a helpline number for employers and for employees 0843 455 0092. They also have extensive online information and tools for PAYE on the UK government website at

HMRC require each employer to administer PAYE for each of their employees. To enable this, HMRC issues a Tax Code for each of the employer’s staff. By using this Tax Code, the employer’s payroll department can calculate how much Income Tax and National Insurance (an additional kind of income tax) to deduct each time the employee is paid.

Each payday, the employer must provide a report online to HMRC detailing the tax deducted from salaries. And soon after, pay the money to HMRC. If an employer uses an outsourced payroll administrator. Then that administrator will perform the necessary reporting to HMRC as part of its services. In either case, an employer PAYE Number is (tel: 0843 455 0092) is available for queries.

HMRC PAYE Helpline Number 0843 455 0092.

Some advantages of the PAYE system to the government are that a lot of the effort and cost of collecting Income Tax is delegated to the employers. And the tax is essentially collected as soon as it becomes due. Soon after payday, rather than at a much later date. A benefit to employees is that the majority do not need to fill out an annual Tax Return. Accounting for income nor themselves pay the tax directly to HMRC because their employer arranges payment of it on their behalf (although each employee ultimately remains legally responsible for payment of their tax).

It’s worth noting that if an employee’s anticipated earnings for a given tax year are unlikely to exceed a government-set threshold, then the Tax Code issued by HMRC should indicate to the payroll administrator that no tax need be withheld for that employee (unless the employee has several sources of income that in total would exceed the threshold).

A telephone HMRC PAYE Contact Info for employees (0843 455 0092) is connected to the HMRC who are able to offer advice and answer specific queries on PAYE and Income Tax.
