We can help with your Self Assessment

20 January, 2022 · 4 min read

Unlike last year,  the deadline for filing and paying your Self Assessment tax return is back to its usual date of 31 January. HMRC reports that almost half of the taxpayers have already filed their returns, but still that leaves another six million people who haven’t. The good news is that late filing and late payment penalties are to be waived for one month for Self Assessment taxpayers, but that still doesn’t leave you with much time.

How to file with ANNA

If you’re one of those many millions who hasn’t filed their Self Assessment tax return yet, we can help. We can get your receipts and invoices in order, even if you don’t have an ANNA business account. All you need is the free ANNA Admin app and some help from your accountant.

Get the ANNA Admin app

Your first step is simple: download our Free Admin app from App Store or Google Play.

Connect your bank account to ANNA

Then, sign up and connect your existing bank account using our safe and secure system, provided by our partner, Truelayer. Want more info on how this works? Check out our detailed post.

Upload your receipts and invoices

After you’ve connected your existing accounts you can upload all your paperwork. There are three ways to do this:

  • Upload photos and or scans in the chat section of the app
  • Use our desktop documents storage – just log in at
  • Send us an email ( with all the receipts attached

When all the receipts are uploaded, the app will automatically attach them to the corresponding transactions on your accounts. If for some reason we can’t find the right transaction our customer experience agents will try to manually find the corresponding transaction, and if we can’t do that we’ll contact you to ask for your help (our transaction recognition rates are very high, so this doesn’t happen often).

Give your accountant access to your ANNA account

When this is done you can invite your accountant to see your transactions, with all the receipts attached – just invite them using the menu item in the chat.
