Anyone who earns more than £1,000 in untaxed income between 6th April to 5th April in any given year will need to file a tax return. This period is known as the tax year. The reasons for earning untaxed income can vary from any of the following reasons:

  • Self-employed or freelance earnings
  • Money earned from rental income
  • Profits from selling crypto
  • Profits from selling a property
  • Rental income from Airbnb
  • Earning over £100k from your PAYE job
  • Profits from selling shares
  • Money made from savings interest
  • And more!

How does TaxScouts work for tax returns?

It’s pretty simple. All you need to do is sign up on their homepage. From there they’ll ask you a few questions about your business and any other income you earned during the tax year. You’ll need to upload details of your income and business expenses for the accountant that they assign you to use.

And that’s it! 

Once you’ve paid the £119, you get assigned your own personal accountant who will ask you for any other information they need to get your tax return filed.

If you have a tax situation that you’re struggling with, you can book a phone or video call with one of TaxScouts’ network of accredited accountants. You’ll get a full, personalised and confidential consultation with a written online summary for you to refer back to.

It’s quick and easy to book and will cost you a flat £99 per consultation.
