Submit your tax return in under 15 minutes

Last updated: 10 Jan 2021

It's always better to enter all your income and expenses (photographing your receipts) so you have a record throughout the year.

If you start using the app late in the financial year and you don't have time to enter all your data, there is a quick way to submit your tax return and avoid getting a late filing penalty.

The 15-minute tax return!

  1. Go to "Pricing Page" choose a plan and sign up.
  2. Go to "My Account" page and answer all the questions.
  3. Enter your total income for the year - using a date like 4 April.
  4. Enter your total expenses for the year using the same date.
  5. Go to the "tax return tab" then select the tax period you want to submit then click on the black Proceed button.
  6. Click in the "Jump to" field and answer all the questions in the tax wizard.
  7. Your tax and NIC liability will show at the bottom of the page.
  8. Click Proceed then enter your HMRC Gateway Account, ID and Password.
  9. Hit the SUBMIT button.
  10. DONE. You'll get an automatic email confirmation from HMRC.

Very Important - You must retain all your receipts

Start entering your accounts regularly, it's not good practice to continue doing your accounts in this way.
