As 2008 becomes 2009 your thoughts may not be on business, but if you file your tax return online you need to do it by 31 January.
And as the deadline gets closer, if you are having difficulty in gathering together all the relevant information, you may be making a new year's resolution to keep better records and file old receipts, invoices and accounts.
If you have not received a tax return, remember that it is up to you to contact HMRC and request one if you need it.
It may all seem complicated, but we had experts on hand to help you out.
How can you check your personal allowance and your tax code?
Maybe you would like advice about filling in your return?
What happens if you have become unemployed or stopped working?
Are you entitled to a refund if you have overpaid tax?
Or perhaps your income has reduced and you are struggling to meet your tax liabilities, what help is available?
Whatever you wanted to know, our guests were here to give you advice about tax and self assessment.
