Anyone who has not yet completed and returned their 2009-10 self-assessment tax return will have until 31st January 2011 to do so. Late submission will result in a fine of £100 plus interest on late payments. The deadline for registering to with HMRC to file online is 21st January 2011 to allow time for your activation code and user ID to reach you by post.

It is possible to register online, allowing seven days to receive the user ID and activation code, giving you just enough time to file your tax return. HMRC are trialling a service which sends reminders by text message, to prevent taxpayers from missing the deadline for filing. These text message alerts will be issued to anyone who missed the deadline previously and incurred a penalty.
