How are Student Loans dealt with under Self Assessment?

What's new

The shake-up of the student finance system will begin in September 2023 and include:

  • A freeze on university course fees: they remain at £9,250 for a further two years.
  • Earning levels at which new borrowers start to repay their loans will be set at £25,000 until 2026-27 (currently £27,295), for those starting courses from September 2023.
  • The interest rate will be cut to match the Retail Price Index (RPI). Currently, it is RPI plus 3%.
  • The student loan repayment term will also be extended from 30 to 40 years for new borrowers from September 2023.

HMRC have created a factsheet to help agents in the preparation of Self Assessment tax returns where Student Loans need to be considered: See http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/leaflets/csla1.pdf
