What is a Self Assessment Tax Return
Self assessment is a way to declare and submit your income and expenses for the year to HMRC in the United Kingdom. The tax year is from 6th April 2018 to 5th April 2019. You can do it online by going to HMRC and making a personal tax account or you can hire an accountant to submit your tax return (known as a SA100) professionally.

- partner in a business partnership
- The directors of a company
