As you will no doubt know, the tax return deadline is now approaching – January 31st 2020. We hope to have received all the relevant information from our clients by now. This is to complete their tax return on time, but if you have not sent in your information, we’re here to tell you not to panic.
More than 16,000 people submitted their tax returns online between the 24th and 26th December last year – with over 2500 taxpayers submitting their return on Christmas day.
Surprisingly, according to a survey by Simply Business, 20% of small business owners didn’t take a break on Christmas Day. And almost two thirds of small business owners were working during the festive period (24th December – 1st January). 4% were even in the office on Christmas Day!
While it is important to make sure that you send us the relevant information to complete your return in time, we want you to be able to enjoy a well deserved break at this time of year. We don’t want you to be trying to figure out your pension contributions and missing out on your Christmas dinner. Our hope is to alleviate some of the stress on businesses around this festive time of year and to allow you to enjoy the holiday.
Don’t worry. Ideally, if you have a chance before the Christmas holiday, you can send us any of your tax-relevant information. However, if you send it in the first week of January, we can still process it by the deadline.
The most important thing for us is that you don’t have to organise your finances instead of enjoying the festive period.
If you have any questions about the information we require from you, please feel free to get in touch.
