Less time to claim

You should know that the deadlines to send in any claims are changing from six to four years.

The deadlines are particularly urgent if you are a Self Assessment taxpayer and have a claim for the 2004-05 or 2005-06 years that you have not yet made, such as pension contributions or Gift Aid.

The new deadlines are:

Tax year                                             Deadline

2003-04 year                                       31 January 2010

2004-05 year                                       31 March 2010

2005-06 year                                       5 April 2010

2006-07 year                                       5 April 2011

2007-08 year                                       5 April 2012

2008-09 year                                       5 April 2013

This is not good news for taxpayers, particularly when times are tight. It is important, therefore, to make sure everything is up to date.
