Why GoSimpleTax for Online Sellers?

For online sellers, there’s hardly time to file your tax return let alone keep on top of your accounts. As such, it’s not uncommon for online sellers to miss the 31st January deadline or fall foul of HMRC due to errors in their tax return submission. GoSimpleTax helps prevent that by enabling you to input your income and expenditure in real time, and therefore proactively update your tax return.

Our software walks you through the tax year, highlighting your responsibilities as you go.


Take Advantages Of HMRC allowances

If you complete your return via the the HMRC website, it won’t tell you about the available allowances. Go Simple Tax via a series of questions highlights exactly what allowances you can claim for.


Allowable Expenses for Online Sellers

Business expenses are inevitable when you’re an online seller. Thankfully, many can be deducted as allowable expenses from your taxable profits to lessen your Income Tax bill.
