5 October Notification Deadline
Where an individual has a requirement to submit a self-assessment tax return, but no return has been issued, they need to notify HM Revenue & Customs and register for self-assessment.
Second Families, Step-Children and Succession
It has been estimated by the Scottish Consumer Council that “reconstituted families” (i.e. those including a spouse who has had a previous marriage and/or step-children) are now the norm in the UK. Such complex family circumstances need to be carefully addressed in Wills or perceived unfairness can easily arise.
31 October Paper Filing Deadline
For individuals who wish to file their tax return on paper, the deadline for submission is 31 October. Failure to file a paper return by this deadline will result in an automatic penalty of £100.00.
