How to Pay Tax for Spa Business in London

Generally, a spa in London has two methods of filing tax returns in the United Kingdom. The first option is by post and the second and quicker method is online. A tax return is necessary for every person, who is either employed or self employed and earning over £2,500 and is not just a specific requirement for spas. Another rule that needs to be followed is that the taxable person or company should send his or her tax returns by midnight of October 31, if they are filing a paper copy. In case of online tax return, the taxable person will get extra time to return his or her tax returns, as they can submit them by midnight of January 31. If the tax payer misses the deadline, he or she will be automatically fined £100. Remember the tax year in United Kingdom starts from April 6 and ends on April 5.
