The date for the Tax year in the United Kingdom starts on April the 6th 2022, a Wednesday, and finishes on April 5th 2023, a Friday. These are the exact dates that are represented in the Tax Year Dairy.
Each day has room for the days incoming and outgoing transactions with a balance running total and final figure to record at the end of each week. Simply input the description, or ‘reference to’ details for complete control and accuracy during your tax year business.
Each double page spread has a handy calendar and an area for the weeks notes.
Weekly & Monthly 'at-a-glance' Reference and Final Earnings
Further along in the tax year diary, there are pages with columns to enter the weekly and monthly snapshot of earnings and expenses with totals for easy reference. This will allow you to add the figures together and , hopefully, receive the same amounts. This enables a ‘3’ tier conclusion to be sure your figures match.
After the math’s are done and added together, the final declared earnings can be entered and kept for the day you file your tax return. All being well, those figures are then either entered into your online self assessment account, or given to your tax advisor to complete your return
