    you get until midnight on the 31st so you'll be fine. I had a client last year who was so unorganized that it wasn't submitted until 8pm on the 31st and there was no issues.

    Thats great news thank you for your help. I usually expect one on the last week, but this year has been ridiculous!!

    For the payment of the tax however your clients need to be aware of it so they allow plenty of time for payment to clear (ie 3 working days for BACS).
