Do I need to complete a tax return?

12/01/2018 17:57:10

I started up my company and registered as a sole trader April 2017. I am just a little confused about the tax return and have a few questions:

1. As I have only just started April 2017, do I need to fill out a form at all? I have been looking and reading a lot of conflicting information

2. If I do not need to fill one out yet, when will I need to do this? Will it be next year?

3. I've read that HMRC will either send you a letter or email in regards to the tax return, does this happen at all?

Thank you for any help in advance!

Hi Shannon,

If you notified HMRC that your business started on or before 05/04/17 then you will be required to complete a return for the end of January. If it started on or after 06/04/17 then you won't be required to do one just yet. Let me know which one applies to you and I'll be able to advise further
