A record number of UK taxpayers filed their Self Assessment returns on New Year's Eve, according to figures released by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

HMRC said that 24,546 people submitted their tax return online on New Year's Eve 2015, up 2.8 percent on 2014. More than 11,467 people completed their return on New Year's Day 2016.

HMRC said the number of people completing their tax return on Christmas Day also broke records. There was a 13 percent increase in the number recorded on December 25, 2014.

The deadline for sending 2014-15 tax returns to HMRC, and paying any tax owed, is January 31, 2016.

Ruth Owen, Director General of Personal Tax, said: "As we all enjoy the festive season it's easy to see how completing your tax return can be forgotten, but the January 31 deadline will be here quicker than we think. Our advice is don't leave it until it's too late. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time and remember our online service is available with helpful advice and handy tips any time of the year, whether that's on Christmas Day, or even New Year's Eve."
