HMRC has revealed that 2,828 customers filed their self assessment tax return on Christmas Day, compared to 2,700 in 2020.

The most popular time on Christmas Day was between midday and 12:59pm when 227 returns were filed.

In total, more than 31,000 customers submitted their 2020/21 tax return between Christmas Eve and Boxing Day.

Christmas Eve was the busiest day of the festive period for filing with almost 20,000 returns made while Boxing Day saw a further 8,641.

Myrtle Lloyd, HMRC's Director General for Customer Services, said: 'Filling in a tax return won't have been on many people's to-do lists for Christmas, but please don't leave it until the end of January either. We have videos, guidance and helpsheets to support you – just search 'self assessment' on GOV.UK to find out more.'

The deadline for filing 2020/21 self assessment tax returns is 31 January 2021. Please contact us if you require any help completing your return before this date.
