Just done mine, took about 4 hours today. One more year investing then, hopefully, 4 or 5 years without any major spend. Only trouble then is the tax bill just gets bigger

Watch our for the advance tax payments! Think its called payment on account. 

I believe this is only applicable to people that pay in installments (quarterly or 6monthly).

I pay 1 payment annually

After your first year you will be asked for an advanced payment in July, usually an amount of half of what you paid last year. This tax year everyone was given the option of not paying it due to Covid.

After your first tax return you should be asked for an advanced payment for the end of July, which will be half of what you paid for your 1st year, this should be on the letter from HMRC. For your second January tax bill you should have the credit you've paid in July set against what you owe and an additional 50% for the following year.

You can request due to circumstances/low profit request an exemption to the advance payment but I don't know how. If you have an accountant check with them as you could get a big unexpected bill come July!!!

I am 99.99% certain that you will have to pay a payment on account in July as others have said. Most people pay their tax bill in 1 hit, however you still have to pay the payment on account.

You only have to make a payment on account of your tax bill is over £1000. If it is over £1000 then the only way to not pay it is to ask to reduce it because you think your profit will be lower the year after. But if you're profit isn't lower then HMRC will charge you interest on the payment on account you should have made (even though it's technically a tax payment on earnings not earned yet).

He's got nearly 450 customers, if his tax bill is less than £1K I need to speak to his Accountant, quickly 😂

I'm that case so do I 😂 then I'm perplexed at why he's never made payments on account in July and Jan. Unless he pays it all in Jan I suppose. I have now set up a monthly DD so I don't make 2 bigger payments a year.

Ive not had all them customers all year  i started the tax year with 230ish and didnt work until mid May, and ive spent nearly £20k on the business this year so could be close, as profit margin isnt as high as id have liked but next year will be a 😲😲😲 kinda moment 😢😢

I'd start saving now if I was you it will make it easier moving forward, as you will have as others have said two payments on account and you will have to make a payment this July depending on what your profit is then a Jan payment, 

But next July for example could be a 5k payment then Jan 10k then July again at 5k, I would take a good look at what your potential tax liability is going to be, Also if you ain't got an accountant I'd get one ASAP he or she would have made you aware of all of this.
