My employer has filed a return of my income and tax for the year. Why am I also required to file a self assessment return?

The law mandates that all taxable individuals are required to file a self assessment return showing details of their income from all sources. Your employer would only have declared your employment income and as such may not capture all your income for the year of assessment.
