How to end self employment?

20/05/2019 06:34:07
I know it should be simple - I filed in my final tax statement, informed HMRC that I ended my business (even got a tax repayment), submitted online form ending my self-emplyment and got a late filing penalty next year. I submitted the online form again and realised that at no stage in the whole prcess I got a confirmatiom from HMRC that my self-employment is over. Any ideas?

If you put down the date you stopped self-employment in the self-employment section of your last tax return, then this should have came through and closed both your self-employment and Self Asessment records.

In order to check your self-employment is ended on our systems please either contact us via webchat or call the Self-Employment contact centre on 0300 200 3500 (Lines open 8am - 8pm Monday to Friday and 8am - 4pm Saturday)
