Completing your return correctly

All your income and claims for deductions or allowances must be true, complete and correct.

Before you submit your return check the following:

  • you've completed the section about residency correctly 
  • you've ticked the box if you're married or in a civil partnership and claiming the married / civil partnership exemption threshold
  • the income you are declaring is correct (for example if you're employed your taxable income should be the same as the gross taxable income figure on your payslips)
  • you've declared all your taxable income (for example in addition to employment income you also had income from renting a room in your own home)
  • you're only claiming expenses that you are entitled to claim (for example if you're self-employed don't claim for anything which is for your own personal use and therefore not a business expense)
  • you're only claiming allowances you are entitled to claim (for example if you're claiming child allowance you have a child you're entitled to claim)

We are putting more resources into compliance so if you don't want to incur penalties in the future, complete your return carefully. If you have been careless or deliberately concealed income from us, we will find out.  

Penalties for inaccurate declarations

Married and civil partnership filing information

If you're married or in a civil partnership, the primary taxpayer is responsible for filing the return and declaring the income for both people.

If you got married or entered into a civil partnership during the year the primary taxpayer is responsible for declaring their spouse's or partner's income from the date of marriage or civil partnership.
