The SA401 form is an essential document if you are a partner in a self-assessment partnership. You will need to complete this form and submit it to HMRC in order for your association to be registered.

A self-assessment partnership is an agreement between two or more people that allows them to prepare and submit a Self-Assessment tax return. It is important to remember that the partners in a self-assessment partnership remain individually liable for their own taxes.

Partners complete and submit self-assessment tax returns together and are jointly liable for any debts owed to HMRC.
