If HMRC has asked you to complete a self-assessment return for 2019-2020, you must complete it before 31 January 2021 or face a £100 fine. Some people (those who are self-employed, for example) need to complete a tax return every year; others are sent one because they have untaxed income (often from property). As a result of the coronavirus crisis, HMRC has given a four-week extension to anyone who missed the January 2020 deadline, starting on 26 March. If you have a 'payment on account' to make in July 2020, you can defer this until January 2021. You can also defer VAT payments that are due. Find out more in our dedicated coronavirus hub.
