Important deadlines for 2022
31 January 2022 is the deadline for filing taxes electronically and making the first payment on accounts outstanding.

This is the last day you can file your taxes electronically for the fiscal year 2020-21. Your tax return must have been received by HMRC no later than midnight.

If you receive a notice from HMRC to make an online tax return after the 31st of October 2021, you will have three months from the date of issue to submit your return. This is the sole circumstance in which this deadline may be extended beyond its normal parameters.

If you are unable to submit your return by the 31st of January, HMRC will not charge you the £100 late filing penalty until the 28th of February; however, it must receive your return by midnight on the 28th of February in order for you to avoid being penalised.

If you are self-employed, the 31st of January is the day you are required to make your first payment on account for the 2021-22 tax year, as well as a balancing payment if tax is still owed from your income from the previous year, 2020-21. The deadline to pay your tax bill is also the 31st of January.

If you do not pay your tax bill before the due date of the 31st of January, you will be subject to interest charges of 2.75 percent beginning on the 1st of February and 3 percent beginning on the 21st of February.

This penalty charge will be added on top of the interest that has been accrued.

The beginning of the new fiscal year, 2022-2023, will occur on April 6, 2022.

Depending on what was decided in the Budget, new tax rates and allowances for 2022-23 will go into effect today. Because of this, you should check to see whether anything has shifted so that you may adjust your finances accordingly.

The second payment on the account due is due on July 31, 2022.

Workers who are self-employed and pay their taxes using the payment on account method will be required to submit their second payment before the midnight deadline on July 31.
