But don’t forget to pay your tax bill!

You’ll need to settle your tax bill through the .GOV website. In the near future (when HMRC catch up) you’ll be able to settle your tax bill directly through TAXO’D.

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.

What if my return was ‘unsuccessful’? 😅

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?

Editing your return

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.
