Depending on individual circumstances, you may need to pay tax by 31st July 2015 too. So that we can review your position before this date, please provide your information well in advance of 31st July.

As we have a growing client base, we will prioritise those clients who present their complete records on time. We do not want any of our clients to incur any additional costs and for the avoidance of doubt,

Receipt of your complete information after 30th September 2015 but before 31st December 2015 will incur a £50 + VAT surcharge. Receipt of your complete information after 1st January 2016 will incur a £100 + VAT surcharge.
