This month the webinars cover several useful topics for those studying or updating knowledge on self assessment including change of basis dates!!

With the 31 January 2018 deadline for final submission of any 2016-17 self assessment tax returns looming ever more quickly, this month's HMRC tax webinars look to be particularly useful. The webinars are easy to join, and there are opportunities for participants to ask plenty of questions.

From filing a tax return online, to organising business expenses, HMRC have got it covered with an extensive range of specially selected webinars. 

Please click on a time below to suit you for the webinars so far announced for December. Note: once the live webinars are complete it is possible to view a recording - you can watch the recordings here.

Note: this month in particular has some really useful webinars if you are studying for the Level III Diploma in Self Assessment Tax Returns and the first one (7 December) covers basis dates which candidates often find quite difficult to understand. They might also act as a useful revision if you have clients for whom you have to submit a return very soon!
