Thanks a lot, wingsham and all. Hence, do you mean for a non UK resident, we have to file the tax return by paper form and cannot file it online? It's a bit confusing as I received a letter from HMRC asking me to filing my return online. I already got the approval for the NRLS and I was informed that HMRC has set up a self assessment record for me. And the most recent correspondence from HMRC asked me to file online. Could I clarify if a non UK resident will not be able to file online anyway (apart from using commercial software) and I will have to call for a paper form? I am really really confused about the procedure and am afraid that I will miss the deadline. Could anyone please advise?
Can a non UK resident do self assessment online (not using the commercial software) for UK property income? If yes, where can I find a detailed guideline (step by step) to register for self assessment? When I registered, I was required to provide a UK postal code which I don't have. How can I proceed with the registration?
