Why can't I see my tax return in my personal tax account with HMRC?

We've recently been getting a lot of people asking us why the tax return they filed isn't showing in their HMRC personal tax account.

While it can take 72 hours for a tax filing to reach your account, sometimes even then it's not obvious that you've filed.

It also hopefully gives you reassurance that all is okay, whether you've filed using untied or in other ways.

When you log into your personal tax account (there's a link below), you see a box marked Self Assessment. Even if you have already filed a tax return it may still say "Complete your tax return".


Ignore this. Instead click on either the top box marked "Self Assessment. View and manage your Self Assessment tax return" or the line marked "Complete your tax return". You'll then see what's really going on.


If all is good you'll then see something that tells you that your return has been submitted.
