Re: Filing UK Tax Return being a non-resident

FYI, I have also filed online for the past 2 years, declaring rental income and stock units that are still being apportioned for UK tax. I use a 'correspondence address in the UK' for the filing and the online forms have my Swiss address somewhere on them. I think this was setup when I sent in a P85 to declare that I was leaving the UK.

This year my refund was paid in a week or so. Last year, the submission was randomly selected for 'checking', but no-one contacted me and it was paid a month later.

Though I noticed the 'I am a UK resident' on the declaration, I will file online until they tell me otherwise...

Re: Filing UK Tax Return being a non-resident

i used taxcalc as recommended and i have to say, it was excellent. it was only 24.99 and made it very simple.

Re: Filing UK Tax Return being a non-resident

do you buy this software every year, or is it a one-off purchase and it gets updated each year for free?

Re: Filing UK Tax Return being a non-resident

You have to buy the software each year but I do agree with those above who have said that it is very straightforward to use.

Re: Filing UK Tax Return being a non-resident

I've been using TaxCalc since moving here in 2008. 25 a year for the software, but very simple to use and it rolls forward all the data each year into your new return. The only disadvantage for me is that it doesn't work on Mac, so I will have to fire up a rather flaky Windows laptop for the first time since last year's tax return...

Which reminds me I really must do my 2011/12 return this weekend...

hello, I'd like to dig up this old thread with the following question: if you use Taxcalc can you still fill in "on line" ? i.e. does it transmit to HMRC so you are under the jan 31st deadline for the 12-13 tax return, or does it end up with the paper only so you will be passed the paper deadline by now ? As HMRC website only says "not to be used if your not tax resident in the UK" once you start the online process having gotten your logon codes (HMRC idiots) I now find myself in this unfortunate situation. im happy to lay out 25 notes for taxcalc if it avoids a pathetically unfair hmrc fine.

thanks

Mike

With TaxCalc you can submit on-line. You have to fill in your HMRC log-in details and it does it all automatically, and you get the filing confirmation back. (I am just doing mine for 12-13 at the moment using TaxCalc, and did the same the last couple of years).

Re: Filing UK Tax Return being a non-resident

For anyone who still submits a paper UK tax return, remember that next Saturday (31st October) is the filing deadline.

My daughter just asked what tax is, so I ate half her ice-cream.

How can you hate half an ice cream. You either love or hate all of it don't you?

Re: Filing UK Tax Return being a non-resident

Paper tax return deadline time in a few days.

This year, my daughter knows better than to ask.

I like to pay my taxes with a friendly smile.

Although those miserable bastards at HMRC told me its not legal tender.

Yes. I'm here all week. Yes. Good things it's Saturday!
