Completing Self-Assessment Journals
There are 3 self-assessment journals that must be completed a minimum of once every 5 year period. They may be completed more often and may be completed at any time in the 5 year period the audit is due, including the audit year. For example if an audit is due in 2021 then there must be one of each self-assessment journals completed between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2021. For all practical purposes that means the timeframe is January 1, 2017 to April 30, 2021 as the audits are due April 30 to allow adequate time for review, feedback, and resubmission (when required).
The 3 self-assessment journals are:
