When do you need to register for self assessment?

The deadline for registering for self assessment is fast approaching so you need to act now! Anyone who has to complete a self assessment tax return for the 2022/2023 tax year must tell HMRC by 5 October 2023 if you have not completed one before. You usually have to register for self assessment if for example, you have untaxed income because you work for yourself or are a landlord. HMRC has a useful tool to check if you need to complete a tax return.
