If HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) have sent you a Self Assessment tax return or notice to complete a tax return for 2009-10 or earlier and you have not yet taken any action, HMRC are offering you a quick and straight forward way to bring your tax affairs up to date. There is also a dedicated telephone helpline to support you.
What to do now
To take part in the Tax Return Initiative you need to tell HMRC that you intend to do so. You can do this by completing an online form and sending it to HMRC either electronically or by post. It only takes a few minutes. You then need to complete and submit your late tax return(s) and pay what you owe (or claim any repayment that might be due) by 2 October 2012.
Notifying HMRC that you want to take part
You can instantly submit your notification form online to HMRC
using the 'submit by email' option in the form.
Alternatively, you can complete and post your form to:
HM Revenue & Customs
Tax Return Initiative Team
20 Oxford Road
You can ask Ellis & Co to notify HMRC on your behalf by using either of these options.

Completing your tax returns
Once you have notified HMRC you want take part in this initiative, you will need to complete and submit your tax returns by 2 October 2012. The quickest way is to submit your tax returns online. You will need to register for HMRC Online Services if you have not already done so. If you need to register you should do so without delay in order to meet the 2 October closing date. If you are unable to complete your tax returns online, you can complete paper returns and send them to HMRC at the address shown above.
If you need help or advice contact Ellis & Co on 01244 343504 or email Peter Way-Rider: firstname.lastname@example.org
