Good day to you, @ukpaulgannon.

 

Allow me to share some information about the Self-Assessment submission.

 

QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE) is in compliance with the HMRC’s Self-Assessment tax period. Thus, the option to change the Self-Assessment tax date in QBSE is not available.

 

As a way around, I’d suggest contacting the HMRC. There, they’ll be able to advise you on the best action to take in changing your Self-Assessment tax date.

 

Additionally, I’m adding these articles that you can use to learn more about managing your Self-Assessment tax in QBSE:

You can always leave a reply if you have other questions using QuickBooks to manage your self-employed taxes. I'll be around to assist you. Keep safe!

Hi, sorry you misunderstand me, I have always used these dates for my income  tax returns. 

But with quickbooks how do I change the date on there. Since I believe it is using 1st April to March.

Thanks for visiting us again, @ukpaulgannon,

 

Our QuickBooks Self-Employed program for United Kingdom is preset with a default tax year period. The cycle in the program usually starts from April 6 - April 5 of next year. For now, changing the tax year within the program is currently unavailable.

 

Being able to update the year manually would be handy for businesses using a different accounting period. We're taking not of this for review and we appreciate your time visiting us today.

 

If you have any questions or need further assistance with anything in QuickBooks, I'll be right here to help. Keep me posted in the comments below. Have a lovely week ahead!
