Date boxes on self assessment tax return.

Sorry if this has been asked before.

I am filling in my tax return. There are some dates to be filled in on
the Self Employment section. It doesn't state the format. i.e. should
I write 14/02/2005 or 14/02/05, or 14/Feb/05. And is it DD/MM/YY or
what.
Or, does it really matter!

Regards

Nick

Really confuse them and use the American date format.

Assuming this is an online form, there is only one format to be used:

The International Standard ( ISO 8601 )

http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/iso-time.html


especially relevant is

"Especially authors of Web pages and software engineers who design user
interfaces, file formats, and communication protocols should be familiar
with ISO 8601."


Which means that the Revenue is totally unlikely to have seen it.


Keep chipping away
