Missed the paper tax return filing deadline?


4 November 2021

By Sarah Field

The deadline for completing and submitting your paper tax returns has now passed. Those registered for self-assessment had until 31st October to send in a paper return. However, all is not lost! You can still file your return online and will have until 31st January to do so. Of course we would recommend not leaving it until the deadline.

Dates to remember:

  • Paper tax returns need to have been submitted before 31st October
  • Online tax returns can be submitted up until midnight on 31st January
  • You need to have paid any tax you owe by 31st January.

Penalties will be applied to late filing and tax payments. Please note that you can appeal against a penalty if you have a reasonable excuse.
