How do I calculate my self assessment tax return?
The process by which HMRC calculates your Income Tax liability involves a few key steps. Firstly, HMRC sums up all your sources of taxable income. This includes wages, profits from self-employment, rental income, and other sources. Next, HMRC allows for the deduction of any permissible expenses and applicable capital allowances. These deductions can vary depending on the type of income and your circumstances.
Additionally, HMRC factors in any other allowances that you might be eligible for. One of the most common allowances is the personal allowance, which is an amount of income you can earn each year without having to pay tax on it.
After these deductions and allowances are applied, the total taxable income is calculated. HMRC then applies the relevant tax rates to this income. In the UK, there are different tax bands, and each band has a different rate. Your income is taxed at the rate corresponding to the band it falls into. This ensures a progressive tax system where higher earners pay a higher rate of tax on their income.
In summary, HMRC’s calculation of your Income Tax involves tallying all taxable income, subtracting allowable expenses and allowances, and then applying the appropriate tax rates to the resulting taxable income.
