Self-assessment online: Registration reminder

printer Mail

Taxpayers preparing to file their self-assessment tax return online for the first time will need to register in good time for the 31 January deadline, HMRC said.

A user ID is allocated immediately, but an activation code is issued by post. This can take up to 10 days to arrive, so HMRC is urging people to register in December. ‘Those who have filed online before should shut that they still have a user ID and password. It can also take up to 10 days to get a replacement.’
