Swindon and Wiltshire small businesses and business owners are being urged to act now to ensure they receive vital tax credits. Lawrence Harrison who runs TaxAssist Accountants in Swindon said; “July 31st is the deadline for tax credit renewals, which for Swindon small business owners means they don’t have long to complete their tax returns. The self-employed will need those tax returns in order to complete much of their renewal form. “For employed tax credit claimants, HMRC is encouraging employers to sit down with staff to double-check their figures. Failure to meet the deadline could result in the wrong payments being made and worst case, your tax credits payments being stopped altogether.” Filing tax returns early could be beneficial to small business owners in other ways, said Lawrence Harrison.
