HMRC – Registration call for Self Assessment

HMRC is to issue a call to all newcomers who are preparing to complete their first online self assessment tax return.

Remember!  In order to complete your self assessment tax return online you MUST register for HMRC’s online services well in advance because it can take up to seven working days to complete the process, as an Activation Code has to be posted to you.

Registering is easy by visiting the HMRC website and signing up.  A user ID will be sent to you immediately, then an Activation code will be sent through the post and once received you can then activate your account and use the online services.

Any outstanding tax returns must now be sent online by 31 January 2013 as the 31 October deadline for paper returns has now passed.

As well as your online tax return, any tax you owe for 2011-12 must also reach HMRC by 31 January 2013.
