In the UK the tax year runs from 6 April to 5 April for historic reasons and a tax return is, generally, required to be submitted and the tax paid, on or before the following 31 January.
The UK operates a self assessment basis for its tax returns. The taxpayer considers what needs to be reported and calculates the amount due then submits this information to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC). HMRC then reserve the right to enquire into any items they consider may not have been reported accurately, generally only within 12 months of submission.
