The deadline for the Self-Assessment tax return for the tax year 2022-2023 is set on 31 January 2024. However, embracing early filing not only relieves the last-minute pressure but also offers you the following four key advantages highlighted by HMRC:

This early clarity empowers you to engage in more precise and effective financial planning, enabling you to allocate funds, investments, and expenses more efficiently.

This ingenious feature allows you to distribute the cost of your tax bill into manageable weekly or monthly payments. With early filing, you can start budgeting for your tax liability promptly, reducing the impact on your overall financial stability.

3. Potential Refunds: Curious if you’re eligible for a tax refund? Once you’ve submitted your tax return, make use of the HMRC app to quickly check if you’re entitled to a refund. Early filing ensures that you have ample time to review your financial details and claim any refunds you might be owed.

4. Expert Assistance: Navigating the tax landscape can be complex, but early filers have an advantage.
