Relaxing Tax Returns
I am always looking for ways to feel good around money.
One of the surprising ways I have found is, yes I know, doing my tax return in April.
One of my clients turned up and she was so relaxed and calm.
I asked her “how come?” and she said “I have just done my tax return.” and I thought yes, I would like that feeling.
I have done my tax return in April ever since.
Now you could be one of the half a million people who wait until the very last day, 31st January, to do your return.
Or one of the 2000 people who do it on Christmas Day – not sure about that.
Personally, I like to get to the end of the tax year, gather everything together and do my figures.
Then start the new tax year fresh.
Not worrying I am going to find a receipt in 18 months’ time and trying to think ‘what on earth was that for?’.
Sometimes I pay at the same time, if it is a small amount.
Mostly I put a few reminders in my diary, not to spend the money at Christmas and to pay in the New Year.
Thank you for watching.
