From this year, there are changes to the Self Assessment deadlines - paper returns must now be filed by 31 October, while the deadline for online returns remains at 31 January.


The limit for completing simpler, abbreviated accounts information has been doubled to £30,000.


Thank you to my friend Lucy who sat through a tax session last night! :D

I had heard this ( about the £30,00 ) on the grapevine but its nice to see it on the Revenue & Customes web site.

About time too - I have been dreading the year I creep over the limit.

Nice to have some good news for a change. Now all we need is to be able to write off our monthly mortgage payments and for the mileage amount to go up and we will be laughing - well almost.

You all were groaning because I kept posting new threads in different sections about various different changes :D

The tax woman told me about this being a possibility when she came to see me in Jan but wasn't sure as it wasn't set in stone.

Does that mean i don't have to spend this weekend doing my books?:D

Oh No!!!! I'm quoting my own posts :cool: how embarassing is that??

Sorry :rolleyes: is it 07/08 that don't need to be in 'til October? Because I'm a naughty, naughty girl and despite my best intentions I haven't touches my books since mid March :eek: I don't see me having enough free time to do them until DH come home in August :(

26-06-2008, 04:56 PM
Yes! That's how I read it ... suggest you ring Tax office if you read it differently...

Get those books done! :D

26-06-2008, 07:57 PM
That's good news. I wish I did earn £30,000 though.


27-06-2008, 06:36 PM
Don't think i'd ever have made it over the old limit anyway! Good to know though, thanks
