I seldom need to do the tax self-assessment but had some untaxed
income at the end of 2016 that needs to be declared. Can someone
confirm that self-assessment tax returns to HMRC for the financial
year 2016-2017 don't have to be returned until this time next year? Or
do I need to get my skates on!
They have made the online system much more difficult to log on to, as
they now want to send a code to a phone, which you then have to enter
into their web site.
None of the banks that I have a/cs at do this, so why do the Inland Revenue?
AIUI yes, it could be that it is because access is via the government
gateway and other services are being made available.
If you want to change the number they test or call you have to ring up
and advice your NI number or some such.
PITA id you don't have a good mobile signal.
I have appaling mobile coverage indoors at home, so I use a Vodafone
"SureSignal" device which gives me & SWMBO mobile phone coverage through
the internet. I believe other operators offer something similar.

I used to stick my works phone in the microwave, shielded the phone
enough that lost contact .
Reason for doing that was if the phone was turned off by its off
button the network would announce to the office that "The number you
are calling is switched off" or some similar wording.
If the phone just lost contact the message was something like this
phone cannot be contacted or whatever the words were and was the same
as if I was driving in a poor reception area.
I did this because the office had an annoying habit of discovering
they had sat on a job for hours and it would go out of a target time
unless they issued it at which point it became my target and they
often issued it 15 mins or so before my time of being on call ended.
99% of the time it was completely ridiculous, the customer may well
have been a bit annoyed that I had not attended in the afternoon after
they called in before say 13.00 , but would have been even more pissed
off after me getting the job at 20.50 I arrived to fix something at
