Broadly speaking the ‘SA100’ is the posh name for your self employed tax return form, one of many HMRC forms.

Still wanting to do things the old fashioned way? Then here is everything you need to know about the SA100 form with all the surplus taken out!

You do not need to fill out the SA100 form if you are using our already using our TAXO'D app. However, if you are still living in the dark-ages you will need to :
Go to this HMRC page:
It's worth reading the all-encompassing “How to fill your tax return” pdf found on the same HMRC page as this breaks down in more detail the process and parts of filling out the SA100 form.
Rather primitively, you still have an option to send your SA100 to HMRC by good old-fashioned snail mail but you are better off doing it online instead. HMRC are always quick to issue fines to anyone or anything who files late, so our advice is - Plan ahead and allow for this form to get out to you in good time. There is a major difference between the paper return and the online return to be aware of:
TAXO'D TOP TIP - The deadline for the paper tax return is October 31st. The deadline for the online tax returns is January 31st. give yourself 3 extra months and opt to file online.
Often you’ll also need to submit additional forms – depending on your tax situation:
If you need to fill out any of these additional forms just attach them to your SA100 form.
TAXO'D TOP TIP - Choose to file your SA100 online as you only need to attach these additional forms if filing via the post with a paper tax return.
As mentioned above, we recommend you file your tax return 2020 online simply because you have an additional 3 months to file.
If you would still prefer to file your SA100 form by paper, then you can download the SA100 form via HMRC’s website and send it to the following address:
Pay As You Earn and Self Assessment
HM Revenue & Customs
You will need your UTR to successfully submit your tax return so make sure to apply for your UTR at least 6 weeks before the tax deadline; because no one likes a penalty more than HMRC (unless you are Matt Le Tissier) That's some penalty-taking record ;-)
