Ohh just read this. Irritating. I've just spent an eternity closing down all kinds of empty accounts so as to 'clean' things up in time for this process. Gah. So any account, bank or building society. Open or closed active or not from Jan '16-'17? Super...right oh. There's more homework. I guess the process of closing down and tidying up was a good exercise anyway. So...I arrived in June/July...made the decision to 'set down roots' new year (properly) so I'll do a tax doodah this May. On paper. Along with my very very new micro ent registration (or can do that separate) I have house rental too..I guess they'll want a piece of that too. Friends (he works UK contract and she doesn't work at all) used an accountant and paid €500 to find they didn't owe tax at all. I don't think I'll be going down that route but will need 'assistance' for sure.
Any advice in plainer than plain English please :)) Ostrich syndrome is slowly getting a grip!
