What is a self assesment tax return

What is a self-assessment tax return

A self-assessment Tax return also known as “Personal Tax Return” is way for individuals to declare their annual tax on Income received or Gains/profits made on their capital investments.

Some taxes such as PAYE are collected at source, for example; Employees will have their taxes deducted before being paid by the employer and similarly savings income may be taxed by the bank when paying out interest. However, income from other sources like Rental Property, a Sole Trader Business or sale of an asset that increased in value (e.g a Buy-to-let property) will not have been taxed at source, and hence will need to be declared through a Personal Tax Return and any additional taxes paid.

Similarly, a Tax Return may be done to claim any overpaid taxes, e.g. your employer put you on wrong tax code initially and you were overcharged.

Who needs to do a PTR (Personal Tax Return)

You will need to do a Tax return if during the financial year ending 5th April:

  • Self-employed sole traders who are running their own business or service
  • Partner in a partnership
  • Received more than £2,500 in untaxed income (e.g. you received rental income from a property)
  • Investors with dividend income
  • Your savings income or investment income was more than or equal to £10,000 before taxes
  • You realised profits from selling assets such as buy to let Property or shares
  • You received Child benefit when your income was over £50,000
  • You received income from abroad on which you need to pay UK tax on
  • You lived abroad but received income from UK
  • You are a trustee

There may be other reasons also where you may need to do a PTR but in simple you may need to do a personal tax return if either you need to declare additional taxes payable or reclaimable.

Who needs PTR

Notification of chargeability

If an individual becomes chargeable to income tax or capital gain tax for the first time, he has a duty to notify HMRC within six months of the end of the tax year in which he becomes chargeable.

For example, an individual who received dividend income on tax year 2019/20 has until 5 October 2020 to notify HMRC. In order to file a tax return, you need to be registered for self-assessment and must have a UTR or Unique Tax Identifier number. A self-assessment registration form is submitted for a UTR no. However, it can take up to 6 weeks for a UTR number to be issued by HMRC.

Submission deadlines
