How we Crunch your Self Assessment

Crunch's service means no errors. Armed with easy-to-use software, you’ll have the safety net of fully-trained accountants to check your return before it’s filed with HMRC.

Who needs to file a Self Assessment?

Everyone should complete a Self Assessment if receiving income where the tax is not deducted at source,

For example, the income received from operating as a Sole Trader or working as a Limited Company director does not have NI contributions nor Income Tax already deducted. The HMRC needs to be informed about that income on a Self Assessment form to calculate whether tax should be paid.

Crunch can advise and guide professionals through the potential minefield of Self Assessment filing.

Examples of professionals who are required to file a Self Assessment:

Landlords
Investors
Air BnB Hosts
First time tax filers
Sole traders
CIS Subcontractors
High earners (£100k+)
Company Directors
People Living abroad

Frequently asked questions about Crunch's Self Assessment service

What is a Self Assessment and do I need to complete one?

+

A Self Assessment - often referred to as a ‘tax return’ - is a way for HMRC to calculate how much Income Tax and National Insurance Contributions you’ll need to pay. For contracted employees, your tax is deducted monthly on your employment income through the PAYE system. For the self-employed, or someone with other types of income (e.g. pension or dividends), HMRC needs a Self Assessment to assess the tax required to be paid.

I think I have a complex Self Assessment. Can Crunch handle it?

+

Crunch’s Self Assessment service is a one-off price - with no hidden charges! No matter how complicated you think yours may be, Crunch’s accountants can help, providing a hassle-free and easy experience for our clients.

*On rare occasions, Crunch may not be able to complete your Self Assessment ourselves, in which case we’ll offer to refer you to one of our partners, which may incur additional costs. Under no circumstances would Crunch pass on your data without your explicit permission.

Is it really a one-off fee?

+

With Crunch’s Self Assessment service, we’re completely upfront with all of our fees. Our price increases throughout the year the shorter the window for completion is before the deadline. Our prices are as below:

6th April - 31st August 2022 £95+VAT

1st September - 30th November 2022 £109.50+VAT

1st December 2022 - 31st January 2023 £124+VAT

If you’d like our extra speedy express service, for last-minute Self Assessment filing, we offer this at an additional fee of £100+VAT. Our friendly accountants will give you a stress-free experience, so you feel prepared for the next tax year.

Why is Crunch better than an independent accountant?

+

How long does it take to get my tax refund after my Self Assessment?

+

If you’re entitled to a refund, you should allow four weeks for the refund to be sent to your bank account. If you owe any tax within 35 days of your Self Assessment submission, your refund will be deducted from your total owed.

When is my Self Assessment due?

+

It can be filed any time from the 6th of April, up until the deadline of the 31st of January. We recommend filing it at your earliest convenience.

Why should I file my Self Assessment early?

+

There are plenty of reasons to get your Self Assessment done early. Here are a few of our favourites:

  • If you submit yours as soon as it’s available to do so (6th April), you'll have until the end of January to pay - that gives you time to plan with no nasty surprises in the new year!
  • If you’re owed a rebate, you’ll find out sooner so you can get a refund. Why let the money sit in HMRC’s account when it could be in yours?
  • Getting it completed now means you can tick it off the to-do list.
  • Avoid the dreaded HMRC penalties for missing the deadline - there's an instant £100 fine if you're late to file, plus several others that can catch you out.

Is my Self Assessment included in my Crunch subscription?

+

If you have a Crunch Free, Sole Trader Pro, or Small Business plan, there’ll be a small one-off charge starting from £95+VAT. However, if you have a Limited Company Premium plan, your Self Assessment is included in your monthly subscription.

I use Crunch. How do I start my Self Assessment?

+

If you have an existing Crunch account, just log in, select ‘Self Assessment’ on the left-hand side and click ‘Start’. Our accountants will complete it, request your approval and submit it to HMRC on your behalf.

How do I pay any Self Assessment tax I owe?

+

Once your Self Assessment has been submitted, HMRC will tell you how much tax you owe. This can usually be paid by debit card.

Do I need an accountant for my Self Assessment?

+

You might find that their experience and expertise come in handy, but there’s no legal obligation to hire an accountant to file your Self Assessment.
