‘The information that HMRC needs to see is varied and includes employment information forms – either a P45, P60 or P11D. For anyone who is self-employed you must provide your accounts for the year. HMRC also need to have information on your earned income from dividends, and income from VCT’s or EIS’s. Bank or building society interest must also be submitted and rental income if you own buy-to-let properties. Other income for example child benefit, pension income and contributions, or income and assets from trusts or inheritances must be provided.’
