Self Assessment is a system put in place by HMRC for people who have received untaxed income so they can declare it to the government and pay any tax due.

For most tax is usually deducted at source from wages and savings. But for some people and businesses, they need to report it to HMRC in a tax return once a year.

They must report this to HMRC using a self-assessment tax return form.
