THE North West's 521,795 small businesses are urged to sign up to an easy to use forum to get top Tax tips.

With the midnight, on 31 January 2018, deadline for Self Assessment Tax Returns to be filed online approaching, businesses are urged to join HM Revenue and Custom’s (HMRC) Small Business Online Forum.

It is hosting Q&A help sessions throughout January on how to file, paying taxes for the 1st time and how to use HMRC's digital services.

The Q&As are aimed at new enterprises and start ups but any self employed individual or new business can sign up to the forum, which launched in August 2016.

The sessions, where questions are answered by HMRC specialists, are on:-

Businesses can also share their experiences and knowledge on the forum.

Businesses looking for Self Assessment advice can also access HMRC’s YouTube videos and webinars through the forum.

HMRC’s Customer Services Director General, Angela MacDonald, said:- "The Small Business Online Forum is a vital tool full of great advice and handy hints to make life a little easier for those starting up in business. All small firms should take advantage of the Q&A sessions, especially with the Self Assessment deadline approaching at the end of January 2018."

The deadline for sending 2016 to 2017 Tax Returns to HMRC, and paying any Tax owed, is 31 January 2018.
