2019/20 Tax Year Key Dates

Our 2019/2020 tax year planner has put together all the major dates for the period from 6th April 2019 to the 5th April 2020.

Some only apply to PAYE taxpayers, some are only relevant for the self employed and, if you’re a bit of both, you’ve got everything you need in one place. It makes sense to take a few minutes now to get these key financial dates into your work calendar. It’s much less stressful when you plan towards HMRC deadlines, than them being a sudden nasty shock. 

Our 2019/2020 tax list is in chronological order, starting with the 1st April with the introduction of making tax digital for VAT and from the 6th April 2019 when the new tax year starts. Have a good look through and make a note of all the information that applies to you.

Why am I thinking about the whole financial year at once?

It is wise to look at an overview of your financial year now and plan everything into your work schedule. You do not want to miss any of HMRC’s deadlines and end up with a fine. It is much less hassle to get to grips with how each of these elements affects you.

Gather your information now, find out anything you don’t know and schedule the interim steps. Lots of people find their answers in our free income tax guides and tax FAQs, but you are also welcome to give us a call with any uncertainties.

Not everything on this list will apply to you and sometimes a simple restructuring of admin systems can make the whole tax compliance process much less painful. Just don’t wait until the week before a deadline to initiate it.
