If you need a large print A3 version of the personal tax return, you can call us to request one.

Completing a tax return

If we send you a tax return, you must complete it and submit it back to us to make sure that you pay the correct amount of tax for that year.

Your completed return gives us your declaration of all your income, reliefs and deductions so we can assess how much tax and long-term care contributions you have to pay.

If you pay tax by Income Tax Instalment Scheme (ITIS) we'll update your effective rate.

If you pay on account we'll tell you how much your balancing payment needs to be.

Including paperwork with the return

There's no need to include any of your payslips, receipts or certificates with your return.

The only thing you might need to include is a foreign tax computation if you're claiming relief for foreign tax paid.

You do still need to keep all your financial records safe in case we ask to see them.

Record keeping
