Okay, so before we kick-off, let’s first check whether TAXO’D supports your tax filing requirements:
You can file your Tax Return using TAXO’D on any IOS device or our brand new web-app.
By default, TAXO’D operates within the current tax year. If you need to file your tax return form the previous year, you’ll need to jump back in time.
Do that by tapping the tax year date at the top of TAXO’D home screen on mobile and web-app, or by swiping right in the control panel on mobile.

Once you’ve reached the optimum 100%, you’ll be greeted with the Prepare to File button.
Scroll down the summary checklist and give each question a quick once-over.
Hit EDIT next to the question if you need to make any changes.
Only when you can look yourself in the mirror and honestly state ‘I declare; ‘I have answered all questions to the best of my knowledge’ – can you go ahead and hit THE BIG SHINY YELLOW FILE BUTTON.
So we can send and confirm your return with HMRC you’ll now need to enter your Government Gateway ID and password.
It’s so simple, it feels wrong. But that’s it, done. Are you ? Don't forget these TAXO'D top tax tips ;-) You’ve successfully filed your tax return with TAXO'D and the HMRC. 🙌 Go Team !
Until then, hit VIEW TAX BILL to see exactly how much tax you owe, this includes any payments on account you may owe.
Hit PAY TAX BILL and be sure you pay the full amount.
TAXO’D runs validation at the point of each entry within your tax profile to make sure what you’re entering is correct. You’ll only see an error if the information you’ve provided is incorrect.
If this is the case, you’ll see a notification notifying you of the error. Be sure to comb back through your questions and look for the question with the red error text and make the necessary changes.
When you submit your return, all your details and figures are cross-checked against HMRC’s calculations. Only once your details have been approved by HMRC will your tax return submission be successful.
If you should receive an error, it’ll most likely be that you’ve entered your UTR or NI number number incorrectly, (ya silly sausage) or, perhaps you’ve forgotten to activate your account online after registering as self-employed?
Should you find you made a mistake, or you want to update/make changes to your return, then this is made incredibly simple with TAXO’D.
