31 January: The deadline for paying self-assessment tax liabilities and filing 2018/19 tax returns

e are fast approaching the deadline for filing your Self-Assessment Tax Return which is Friday 31st January 2020. If you would like Cogent to prepare your Tax Return, please complete and return the Self-Assessment Tax Return Questionnaire for the tax year 2018/19.

As we are close to the deadline, we cannot guarantee to complete the tax return to meet the deadline so it is important that you complete the questionnaire as soon as possible.

The standard charge including VAT for a basic tax return is £240 as we have passed the deadline to receive this service at a discounted rate. Please note, more complicated tax returns where additional work or supplements are required, will be subject to additional charges.

If you have a second shareholder, they may also need to file a Tax Return even if they have not done so previously due to the changes to dividend tax from April 2018 on any dividends over £2,000. If they would like Cogent to prepare their tax return, please send them a copy of the questionnaire for them to complete.
