HMRC breaks online filing record

Paper submissions continue to decline as online filing triumphs

HMRC received
over 6m self assessment forms online by the deadline this week.

The latest figures beat the previous record of 5.7m documents filed online
last year by the 31 January submission date.

A total of 9.5m forms were sent out with online filing representing just
fewer than three quarters of all returns recieved, an increase of 12% on last
years’ figure.

Financial Secretary to the Treasury, Rt Hon Stephen Timms MP, said: “More
people than ever before are now filing their tax returns online. It’s easier,
quicker and HMRC processes your return faster, so any money you’re owed is
repaid more quickly.”

The deadline for paper the paper self-assessment deadline was 31 October
2009.
