Avoid the Tax Return Rush: Prepare Your Client's Now!

We all love to take it as easy as possible in the run-up to the festive season. Amongst the few, final deadlines, leisure time is welcome. When you’re relaxing at home with friends and family, tax may be the last thing on your mind. But organising your client’s Self-Assessment tax return now is an early gift to them and you!  

Here at GoSimpleTax, we want to remind you why avoiding the rush for the January 2020 deadline is smart thinking…

The cost of waiting around

Let’s remind you of the fines in place for a late tax return:

  • A £100 immediate penalty, regardless of whether you have no tax to pay, or your figures are absolutely perfect.
  • £10 per day, for up to three months, after the deadline has passed. This has a maximum total of £900.
  • After six months, you’re liable for a 5% charge on the tax due, or £300 – whichever is greater.
  • Fines from then on are at HMRC’s discretion. But rest assured, there will be plenty of correspondence in the interim, asking for swift and secure payment of your debt. 

These are just the penalties for missing the deadline. Even if you hit the right date and time (31st January at midnight), your client’s may have made some mistakes in the scramble for submission. Statements and payment might not match up. Much can go wrong if you aren’t focused, patient and able to check the Self-Assessment for errors.

Meanwhile, there’s the question of saving money for the tax bill… If your clients aren’t prepared for the final sum, it can easily be a nasty surprise, ruining the New Year and their business’ prospects in 2020. Is all of this worth the anxiety?

Make their obligations secure 

Start with the evidence – what do you need? Documents, invoices, bank letters and more will paint a picture of the true state of your client’s earnings. Next, think about expenses: what you can and can’t be claimed. You must also gather evidence to back up the tax break your client hopes to receive. The sooner you do it, the easier the whole thing will be.

Mobile tax software can help. GoSimpleTax, for instance, collects all of your key information as you find it, and adds it up. It has a direct link to HMRC’s web portal, making for a rapid Self-Assessment submission. No longer will you have a very tight window in which to get your tax affairs in order. The whole process is made so much less daunting with efficient tools at your fingertips.   

We cannot make a stronger case for taking the initiative and encouraging your clients to submit early. Leaving you to enjoy the time you have this festive season and avoiding the rush entirely and acting today.
