You might not have ever had to do a self-assessment tax return. Things can look intimidating at first. However, as soon as you know more about the procedure, it is relatively simple. This is the case as long as you have all the necessary details.

What do you need?

Before you begin, ensure that you have the following.

  • First is your ten-digit Unique Tax Payer Reference.
  • Next is your National Insurance Number.
  • You will require information about your untaxed income from that tax year. Included here is income from interest on shares, dividends, and self-employment.
  • Records from expenses linked to self-employment are important too.
  • Remember to include any pension or charitable contributions that could qualify for a tax relief.
  • Finally, there is the P60 or similar records revealing your income that you have paid tax on already.

Read the applicable information

Another smart idea here would be to read the applicable HMRC help sheets. Pay attention to the supplementary pages or extra sections as well. Read the ones relating to why you are filling in the tax return. If you have chosen to fill in the form online, it is possible to find help. Simply click the ‘?’ that shows up besides the separate fields.


You probably have concerns about making mistakes too. It is not a requirement for you to fill the return in during a single sitting. The best thing you can do is begin early. Take your time so you can limit errors. Prior to submitting the return officially, you will have the opportunity to review the documents and fix any mistakes.
