Easy 3 step Self Assessment returns

Clear Books Self Assessment tax returns for your sole trade or landlord income take 3 simple steps:

  1. Track your sales and purchases
  2. Select your Self Assessment tax year
  3. Review the return that is generated for you, make any adjustments you need, and use the values to prepare your return for HMRC

Track sales, no matter how you trade

Clear Books is designed to fit seamlessly into your workflow. Whether you raise invoices or track payments from your bank account, our software makes it easy to manage your business's financial records.

All sales are automatically calculated in your Self Assessment return, to save you a lot of extra work.

Track purchases in a flash

Track your purchases to claim your tax deductions. Simply take photos of receipts with the Clear Books app, and our software will automatically read the text in the photo, creating a record for you to review and save, meaning no more tedious manual entry.

If you want to track bills manually to claim those deductions, you also have the option to type them in, using our easy 'bills' form.
