Five stages of Self Assessment stress

From blissful denial to grim-jawed resolve, where are you at on the Self Assessment stress scale?

Denial

this is fine

Ages to go until 31 January Self Assessment deadline. Aaaaaages.

Bargaining

this is fine

If you at least make a start on your tax return, you can justifiably wind down with at least three hours of Netflix... right? 😱

Panic

this is fine

The receipts. WHERE ARE ALL THE RECEIPTS.

Anger

this is fine

You don’t normally envy your office-dwelling, tax-return-free friends, but just look at them with their ‘weekends’ and ‘free time’. Grrr.

Acceptance

this is fine

It’s time. Getting your Self Assessment tax return done might not be fun but a stiff upper lip is the only way to go. If you’re in need a helping hand, check out our handy Self Assessment SOS section. Now, go smash that tax return!
