Hi We need to do our online self assesment for the tax year 2022-2023. I have a few questions on earning interest on any savings account. Do we include the interest earned on the one self assesment for paying the high income child benefit charge. Ie they will ask about interest on savings? Or do we need to do this separately? If we receive a fixed interest which is paid after one year (October time 23) do I include this amount in next year's tax return (24/25) as its not received until the end of this year? Many thanks

If the interest in the account is split, you declare only your share on the return.
You declare the interest in the year its credited.

Hi thank you for the reply. Can I just confirm we would need to declare the interest credited in October 2023 on the 2023-2024 self assesment? Ie next year's tax return and not the 2022-2023 self assesment. In regards to the first question when we do the self assesment to pay back the high benefit charge. Is there a part to answer on how much interest earned on savings? I'm just making sure we don't do 2 separate self assessments ? Thank you

Hi Gemma Fulcher,
It would be in 23-24 tax year.
When you are completing the return there is a question which asks if you received UK interest.
Thank you.
