31st July 2022 – this deadline is applicable if you are self-employed and use payment on account for your tax submissions; in which case the 31st of July is your deadline for the final payment. Your payment amount will depend on your 2021-2022 earnings. A balancing payment will be due by 31st January 2022, if your earnings were more in 2020-21; which invariably is also time for you to make that first tax payment for the 2021-22 tax year.

31st October 2021 – for those of you filing paper tax returns, here’s your deadline. This applies if you are filing a tax return or are requesting HMRC to do the calculations. If HMRC issues a notice that you file a tax return by 31st July, you must submit the form within 3 months.
30th December 2021 – If you pay tax via PAYE (pay as you earn) plus file your tax returns in the UK online, you have the option of claiming overpaid UK tax deducted via the PAYE system. In this case, provided your tax bill is less than £3000, 30th December is the deadline to file your UK tax returns.
31st January 2022 – If you are filing tax returns online, this is your final deadline. That is unless HMRC issues a notice to make your online tax returns after 31st October 2021; in which case you have up to 3 months. 31st January is also the deadline to pay tax filed by paper or online.
