Do you know how to file a self assessment tax return? Or even what the HMRC self assessment is? The truth is, most UK taxpayers don’t know.

That’s why GoSimpleTax is here to make things simple and we’ll start by explaining a few of the basics:
What is an HMRC self assessment?
Well, to put it simply, self assessment involves completing an annual tax return. In order to do so, you must have up-to-date income records for that year so you can claim allowances and reliefs on your return. It’s as simple as that.
How can you file your self assessment to HMRC?
As a business owner, you will require what is known as a ‘UTR’, for instance when filling in your tax return, when going into partnership with other companies or working on joint business projects.
