Filing Your Tax Return – What People Would Rather Do!

Filing Your Tax Return – What People Would Rather Do!

Having just filed self-assessment tax forms for 31st January, many people are breathing a huge sigh of relief that it is all over with for another year. But why not start your new tax year off in an organised manner, by hiring us to handle your returns for you? It will save you the headache of the last-minute scramble to get all your finances in place, and we will  keep your tax liability to a minimum within the law.

Opinium conducted a survey for accounting software provider Intuit Quickbooks in January 2019, asking self-employed people across the UK what they would rather do instead of their tax return.

The results were astonishing, of the people surveyed

  • 1 in 5 people said they would rather give a speech to 100 strangers
  • 1 in 5 people would rather spend a night in a haunted house
  • 1 in 5 people said they would rather hold a tarantula for a minute
  • 1 in 7 people would rather get trapped in a lift
  • 1 in 8 people said they would rather jump out of a plane

Other findings from the survey found

  • 1 in 2 people worry they haven’t filled in their tax return correctly
  • 2 in 5 people felt stressed at doing their tax return

Added to this 1 in 4 people will do their tax return in the last two weeks.
