  • Starter rate for Savings

    My total income is well below the Personal Allowance of £12,570, however, my tax code shows £570 as untaxed interest. This will be covered by the Starter Rate for Savings of £5,000. Can I remove this from my code as I will not owe any tax at all, and all interest will be more than covered by the Starter Rate of £5,000 and Personal Savings Allowance of £1,000. It makes no sense to include untaxed interest in my code, when my total income will likely be £10,000 or less.
  • Filing a Self Assessment return to date of death

    I am the Executor and Personal Representative of my late mother, and a Self Assessment return is required to be completed for the period to date of death. I am trying to log in using my late mother’s Government Gateway but a message appears saying I’ve to phone HMRC and speak to the Bereavement Helpline. I want to file my late mother’s tax return online. Do I need to register for a new Government Gateway to do this?
