What documents do I require for tax filing if I am a self-employed?
For a self-employed tax return, you need to keep all the bank statements, your income slips, and all the invoices (expenses receipts) related to business.

What happen if I don’t submit my corporate tax returns or pay taxes?
It is your responsibility to submit your tax return and pay taxes (if applicable) within due date.

They can also put you on a trial through the courts.
