Bank Wizard introduced to your Self Assessment Returns

HMRC has introduced a wizard that will validate the bank account details you complete online as part of your Self Assessment return. The wizard will check that the bank sort code is valid and that the account number is entered in a correct format relating to that sort code.

If we do this for you, then please ensure we have your latest bank details. If you complete your own return, then please note the details are now being validated. Of course, if we can help then please get in touch.
