HMRC has provided confirmation that starting from the tax year 2023-2024, there will be a change in the self-assessment threshold for taxpayers who are solely taxed through PAYE. The threshold will increase from £100,000 to £150,000.
For the current tax year 2022-2023, affected taxpayers are not required to take any immediate action as the self-assessment threshold remains at £100,000.
However, if taxpayers submit a 2022-2023 return indicating an income between £100,000 and £150,000 that is solely taxed through PAYE and they do not fulfill any other criteria for self-assessment, they will receive a self-assessment exit letter.
Starting from the tax year 2023-2024, taxpayers will still be required to submit a tax return if their income, solely taxed through PAYE, falls below £150,000 but they fulfill any other criteria for self-assessment. These criteria include:
Receiving untaxed income
Being a partner in a business partnership
Being liable for the High Income Child Benefit Charge
Being self-employed with gross income exceeding £1,000.
