I have just completed my online self-assessment tax form. I knew before I did it that my total would fall below the personal allowance, but being an honest soul I did it to declare £1450 that I was paid to run a music event.
I was being asked lots of questions that were irrelevant to me because I had to indicate that I was self-employed in order to include this bit of cash - and that leads you into pages of questions that do not apply.
I have nearly torn my hair out as the form would not accept what I was saying. I then spent about 45 minutes trying to get through to the helpline.
I did manage to sort it in the end - enter medal! - and here is a tip for anyone else doing this: where the correct answer is £0, do NOT put £0 but just leave it blank! Now.....why does it not just tell you that!!??
Still - in the end they owe me £10.30. Hooray!!
