Completing your tax return online – free guidance

Submitting your tax return online instead of on paper has several advantages, including:

  • Your bill is calculated for you automatically
  • Any refunds due can be paid to you more quickly
  • You only have to see the parts of the form that are relevant to you
  • You have longer to submit your return (paper forms are due 31 October, online are due 31 January)
  • You can go back in and amend/update your details after submission
  • You will know that HMRC has received your return straight away as you will be given a submission receipt reference number

If you want to complete your tax return online, but don't feel confident with computers, we have a free guide to help you get started and get into your online tax return form.
