2011 tax returns have to be filed before 31st January 2012. If you have not yet submitted your tax return information for the tax year ending 5 April 2011 do please let us have it as soon as possible. HMRC has a new penalty system in place that means the automatic late return penalty of £100 will apply even if there is no tax to pay, or the tax itself is paid on time.
The new penalty system means that returns filed six months late could incur fines of up to £1300.
Please note that if you have made any gifts using the Gift Aid scheme, we can include these in your 2011 return and gain tax relief even though any payments may have been made after 5 April 2011. In this instance please advise us of the payment amount, beneficiary and date of payment.
