If you are PAYE, do you have to file a self-assessment tax return?
In most circumstances, you don’t need to file a tax return if you are a PAYE employee because your employer sorts out all your tax deductions through payroll and gives you the details of those deductions in your payslip. However, there are some situations where you would need to file a self-assessment tax return even if you are a PAYE employee.
Here are some of the situations that would lead you to require self-assessment:

You would also need to file a tax return if you live abroad but also have an income from the UK.
What happens if HMRC inform you that you need to file a tax return?
If you receive an unexpected request for a self-assessment tax return from HMRC, our initial advice would be to make sure you don’t ignore it. Even if it is an error by HMRC, unless you tell them they have got it wrong, they will be expecting a tax return from you and will issue you with penalties if they don’t get one.
