File your tax online

Filling out tax forms is never interesting and is often time consuming. In addition to that the forms have to be posted back, they may get delayed, and you may not be sure if they have been processed. Therefore HM Revenue and customs are trying to make life a little easier and are making more filing accessible online.

You can now complete the following tax forms online

VAT – with built in checks to help reduce errors
PAYE – If you have fewer than 50 employees and you file your Employer Annual Return online early, then you will get a tax-free payment
Corporation Tax – This includes details of your liabilities, payments, interest and penalties
Self Assessment – The online form makes all of the calculations for you

To get started visit the HMRC website at and register for online filing. You will then be provided with a user ID and an Activation PIN. For VAT registration you will also need complete the ‘Government Gateway’ process.

The theory is that online filing should save you both time and money whilst providing assurances that your filing has been completed in time.
