It is the tax-payer’s responsibility to tell HMRC that you need to complete a Self Assessment tax return by registering with them. This can be done online or over the phone. Failing to register usually results in HMRC catching up with you a few years down the line - at which time significant penalties and/or interest will usually be charged.
About nine million people in the UK have to complete Self Assessment tax return forms each year. Unfortunately, for too many people (over 850,000 in 2012), their first experience of a personal tax return lies in receiving a penalty from HMRC. It doesn’t have to be this way, though. If you get the right advice and you start the process with plenty of time to spare, you will find that submitting a Self Assessment tax return can be a quick and easy process.
