Self Assessment Tax Return

A self assessment tax return is the process that all self-employed workers, sole trader and company owners must complete every year to pay income tax on their earnings.

The dates that these must be completed are between April and October for the previous year’s earnings.

Tax banding differs depending on your earnings, here is a table of figures to determine how much tax you will be required to pay:

Band                                                          Taxable Income                                             Tax Rate

Personal Allowance                          Up to £12,500                                                  0%

Basic Rate                                                £12,501 to £50,000                                    20%

Higher Rate                                            £50,001 to £150,000                                 40%

Additional Rate                                    Over £150,000                                              45%


It is important that all receipts and bank statements are filed correctly throughout the financial year as the tax office may ask to view these as part of the self assessment process.

For employed or salary staff tax is usually deducted automatically out of wages before they are paid to the employee therefore, a self assessment tax return is not required for this type of work.

Completing your tax return is a process that you must follow, failure to do so will result in a fine and legal action being taken against you. Tax returns may look daunting or you simply may not have the time to complete. HMRC will support you with any queries you may have regarding your tax return. Alternatively, you could hire an accountant to take care of any financial tasks you need completing.



UK Immigration Solcitors

immigration law

Immigration Solicitors roles comprise of the rules and requirements governing the rights of foreign nationals who wish to enter the UK for any reason.

It is an area of law that has grown substantially as people have become more globally mobile.

A points-based system is used called a ‘Tier System’ to manage migration for migrants who want to study or work in the UK.

Tier 1 includes general, entrepreneur, innovator and post-study workers. Tier 2 is a job offer and has four categories including general, intra-company transfers, sportspeople and ministers of religion. Tier 4 is immigration for students and tier 5 is temporary workers.

People who want to come to the UK to visit, work, study or claim asylum will be required to apply under the relevant category.

Immigration solicitors deal with all relevant legal matters that relate to immigration and nationality. Work ranges from asylum, human rights claims and applications.

Work can include defending and preventing deportation and obtaining a work visa for a specified period of time.

Different immigration lawyers will specialise in different categories, these tend to include family, business, work, study visas, deportation and removal, visit visas, appeals and challenging decisions, EEA applications and asylum/humanitarian protection. Due to the changes in EU law and human rights issues, it is a complex and detailed area of law.

If people are living illegally in the UK they can apply for leave to remain by making an application via an immigration solicitor.

The UK immigration act of 2016 includes sanctions on illegal working, prevention of illegal migrants accessing services and new measures to enforce immigration laws.

Solicitors can deal with appeals for people who have had a negative decision from the home office.  Cases can be taken to The Supreme Court and European Court of Human Rights.
