  • Good character and late with tax SE

    I was late submitting my tax self assessment for tax year 2017-18 (as a self employed person). I paid the fine and submitted the return (I do not earn enough to pay tax).
    Could this affect the good character requirement? I have mentioned it in my cover letter (and explained it was an oversight due to family bereavement). Is there anything else I should or can do? I now also have submitted the SE 2018-19.

    Still, should I worry?

    Thanks,

            if you explain that this was a genuine error and not wilful deception then they should be able to disregard a single incident like this

            I am an Immigration Adviser with Commonwealth Immigration. I am also a volunteer with UKCEN, where I provide one-off advice on a pro-bono basis. This advice should not be considered a substitute for formal legal advice. Please see Tim M for full details.

              Thank you Tim,
              That is a very careful answer 'should be able to disregard it'. I appreciate that you need to be careful with what and how you say, but it does make me quite weary about my application. I am nervous now to submit it.

                What Tim is saying is that you should be able to explain this in your cover letter so they understand it was a mistake rather than deliberate deception, as it makes all the difference. Everyone makes mistakes, and that doesn't mean not being of "good character", but it's necessary to clarify this point so they know what happened.

                    Morning,

                    I have great pleasure in confirming that this application was, in fact, successful: Citizenship ceremony invitation letter received and ceremony booked! - UKCEN Citizenship and Residence for European Nationals and their families

                    If you want to make an application and have any doubts about these issues, kindly start a new topic so we can address your specific circumstances, as every case is different and turns on its own merits.
