As a sole trader, a partner in a business or a company director many of you will have
completed your Self-Assessment tax return.
This was our EasyBooks Facebook status January 2017.
“Self-assessments all submitted. Earliest ever finish at 5:45 pm and the most tax returns we have ever completed. 20% more than in 15/16. Well done for a great team effort once again.”
Over at HMRC however, things have been a little different. Angela MacDonald, HMRC Director General of Customer Services has received some questionable excuses as to why some people didn’t hand in their tax return on time. I’ve selected a few for you to view.
A wasp in my car caused me to have an accident, and my tax return, which was inside, was destroyed.
My tax return was on my yacht…which caught fire.
I had an argument with my wife and went to Italy for 5 yrs.
My laptop broke and so did my washing machine.
I couldn’t file my return on time as my wife has been seeing aliens and won’t let me enter the house.
(and a personal favourite of mine.)
I couldn’t complete my tax return because my husband left…and took our accountant with him!
