I've never completed a self assessment. I am retired (below state pension age) and my only income is a small pension, so I am not a PAYE tax payer. The website infers that I don't need to submit a self assessment unless my income from savings is in excess of £10000. However my pension plus income from savings when added together will exceed my personal allowance, so as it is my responsibility to declare this income, why does the website state that I don't need to submit a self assessment?

Hi Steven Holdsworth, 

If it is below £10,000 you would not be required to complete a Self Assessment tax return  for this.

You can advise our Income Tax team of the figures, as it can be reviewed without the need of a Self Assessment tax return. 

Thank you.
