January self assessment deadlines

January

31 January – Self Assessment Date 



Self Assessment is a system HM Revenue and Customs ( HMRC ) uses to collect Income Tax. Tax is usually deducted automatically from wages, pensions and savings. People and businesses with other income (including COVID-19 grants and support payments) must report it in a tax return. You can read more about self assessments from our other blog posts:

5 March – Rail Fair Rises

The government has made the biggest intervention ever to ensure that rail fairs increases are capped at 5.9% for 2023. This is to help reduce the impact of high inflation on passengers. However, an increase is needed to support crucial investment and the financial stability of the railway. 

 

31 March – End of Help to Buy – Equity Loan


This is the legal completion deadline. This is the last date you and your homebuilder can legally complete the purchase of your home, and you’re expected to have your keys by 6pm. If you don’t complete by this date, you will not be eligible for the equity loan.

1 April – Energy Price Guarantee rises

While there will still be an Energy Price Guarantee for a 12-month period from April 2023 until April 2024, the unit cost for gas and electricity will be increased. This means that the typical household will pay an average £3,000 for their energy use for a year, rather than £2,500.

But of course, since the guarantee puts a cap on the unit price and not your actual bill, your final bill depends on how much you use.


5 April – End of the tax year

5 April is the end of the 2022 tax year. 

6 April – New tax year: pensions and benefits

6 April is the start of the 2023 tax year. 


6 April – New Tax year: tax changes

The Income Tax additional rate threshold (ART) will be lowered from £150,000 to £125,140, the income level at which an individual will not have any Personal Allowance, because £1 of the Personal Allowance is withdrawn for every £2 of income above £100,000 from 6 April 2023.

July

31 July – Second Payment on account (Self Assessment)

Payments on account are tax payments made twice a year by self-employed Self Assessment taxpayers to spread the cost of the upcoming year’s tax.

They’re calculated based on your previous year’s tax bill. In other words, HMRC is making a prediction about your future income based on your past income. They’re due in two instalments – the deadlines are 31 January and 31 July.
