    There has been loads of adverts about getting it done by jan 31st to avoid fine.

    I started in 20th dec 2012 and registered with hmrc on Wednesday 9th jan 2012 And it's currently being processed. So do I need to do this self assessment thing? Or not?

    Could you call HMRC? They'd be able to give you a definitive answer

    Pop in your local tax office explain your situation and get it direct from the horses mouth if your turnover is small enough can save yourself a lot of headaches as you may not have do half the stuff others do

    You won't have to do anything now but you will hear from them about April for 2012-2013 so you will only have a few months of books to put in, and you have until jan 14 to send in via online or can't remember when for on paper think oct/nov13?. They will also send a letter with plenty of notice for ni payments, If you have said you will pay, you don't have to until you reach something like £5kish.. Next year will be your full one. Did they not offer you a free course to help with everything?

    Nope. I just signed up for hmrc online on Wednesday, that said it would take a while then couple days later I saw all the adverts so I rung them up and they said they can't help until its been confirmed as to if i am registered or not. And because I have registered as a sole trader but with a business name, they need to check the business name isn't trademarked or anything and then they can help lol
