Income Tax

Income Tax

Income tax is levied on taxable individuals each year for the 12 months ending on the 5th of April. Individuals are required to complete a Self-Assessment tax return if they are Directors of a Company or if they receive income or benefits not subject to PAYE (Pay as You Earn). Any Income tax assessed is then due for payment by 31st January in the year following.

Some of the common sources of income assessed and taxed in this way are:

• Employment income
• Profits from Sole Trader or Partnership Businesses
• Pension income
• Income from property
• Dividends
• Bank Interest received

It is important that detailed accounts and supporting documentation covering all your income and any allowable expenses are maintained to ensure the appropriate income tax liability is calculated.

Getting this wrong or filing your tax return late will result in fines and penalties. In addition you could be subject to one of HMRC’s compliance checks, which are becoming more common place. Clearly, ensuring that your self-assessment tax form is accurate and filed on time is essential.
