Dear HMRC, I started to work on 31 August 2021. This will be my first tax return which I am going to fill. I would like to my accounts are made up to every 31st August or in other word until 31 August 2022 but not 31 March or 5 April 2022. Can I do this now? How can I do this? As I read on internet first year tax return should be "date of commencement to following 5 April" which in my case is 5 April 2022. If that is true, when shall I send my other tax return for 31 August 2022? Kind regards

As making tax digital will align accounting periods with the tax year, your accounts will be made up to 5 April. As you started 31 August 2021, the 2021 to 2022 return is required to show income 31 August 2021 to 05 April 2022.

Thank you.

Thank you for your reply. According to your explanation this will be my first year tax return. How will be my next tax return then? When shall I send my 2022-2023 tax return to have my accounts are made up to 31 August 2022? Thank you

You cannot submit a 2022 to 2023 tax return before 6 April 2023. From that date, you can download a paper return or submit one online.

Thank you.
