You have until the 31‌‌‌‌ ‌‌January 2025 to file your return and pay any tax you may owe, but there are many benefits to submitting your tax return early – you can:

find out sooner if you’re due a refund and get it quicker too
pay in instalments to help with your budgeting
get help if you can’t pay your Self Assessment tax
avoid the pressure and stress of doing it at the last-minute
use your tax return as proof of income for a mortgage, remortgage, loan and any benefit claims
