How long after registering for SA before I can submit my Tax Return?

Postby ck_uk » Thu Dec 22, 2016 3:58 pm

I've just registered for self assessment for the first time, somewhat late but only just found out the deadline was Oct 5. My only option for submitting a tax return now seems to be online by end of Jan 2017. How long should I expect to wait before I receive my UTR, so that I can then fill out and submit my online Tax Return and pay any due tax?

normally 2-3 weeks.
With a pinch of salt take what I say, but don't exceed your RDA

You do normally get 3 months to submit your return from the date HMRC send you it.

Any tax due still has to be paid by 31 January though irrespective of whether you have submitted the return.
