How many days and weeks are left in the financial/tax year?

 In the UK the tax year (financial) runs from 6 April to the following 5 April. So for example if we are talking about the tax year 2018/2019 it would start on 6 April 2018 and finish on 5 April 2019. Be careful when talking about financial years as companies can choose to run their accounting years for their statutory accounts for a different 12 month period whilst still processing tax to the standard tax calendar.  So when talking about the financial year be clear if you mean the legal tax year or your companies financial year.

Businesses can align their financial year with the tax year but many don’t. For a business their financial year is the reporting period that they select to report on their results to Companies House and their shareholders. If you are not sure when your businesses financial year starts you should speak to someone within your accounts department. If you run your own limited business you will need to speak to your accountant.
