 Record numbers file on time

A total of 746,000 people missed the January 31st deadline to file their self-assessment tax return, although HMRC said a record number filed on time. Some 11.4m people were required to complete returns and 6.5% missed the deadline, compared with 7% last year. Angela MacDonald, director general for customer services at HMRC, said: "We want the number missing the deadline to be zero, and we will continue to adapt the process to make it easier and simpler for all our customers until every return is in on time and without avoidable errors.” The most popular hour for customers to submit their return was from 4pm to 5pm on Wednesday this week, with 60,596 returns received.
