Almost 66,500 filed self assessment returns on 6 April

According to HMRC data, around 66,500 people filed their 2021/22 self assessment returns on the first day of the new tax year.

In previous years, the number of ‘early-bird’ customers filing their completed self-assessment tax returns at the start of the new tax year has increased – about 30,000 more customers filed their forms on April 6 this year than in 2018.

Others are being encouraged by HMRC to improve their filing habits as soon as possible. Although many people wait until closer to the annual filing deadline on January 31, for some it is an opportunity to beat the last-minute rush and get it done while they still have the necessary information.

Myrtle Lloyd, HMRC’s Director General for Customer Services, said:

‘You don’t need to wait for the January rush to send us your tax return. More and more people are getting theirs out of the way early – search ‘self assessment’ on GOV.UK to get started.’
