What is Self Assessment tax return?
Self Assessment is a system by which HMRC collects tax from individual taxpayers. Every taxpayer (with some exceptions) has to prepare & submit self assessment tax return to HMRC for a tax year which runs from 6 April to 5 April. In the tax return, you need to declare all types of taxable income such as rental income, capital gains, employment income, pensions, self-employed income, dividends, interest and other taxable income. Based on the declared income, tax liability is calculated and paid to HMRC.
When is the tax return due for landlords?
The deadline for submitting tax return is 31 October for paper returns and 31 January following the tax year for the online returns. This means that for the tax year 2016/17, the deadlines are 31 October 2017 for paper returns and 31 January 2018 for online returns.
When do landlords need to pay income tax?
Landlords needs to pay income tax liability in three instalments on payment on account basis. This means the tax is due even before you have prepared your self-assessment tax return. The first instalment is due on 31 January of the same tax year, second instalment is due on 31 July following the tax year, and final instalment is due on 31 January following the tax year. The first two instalments will be 50% of previous year’s tax liability, and final instalment will be the balancing figure based on the actual tax return for the tax year.
