Hi,
I will be applying for my wifes residency visa to the uk in January. I have been told I need the following documents. 
Tax receipt P60
Letter of employment 
Letter of contract 
Pay slips.
I am self employed and will only be able to provide my tax returns from the accountant and bank statements. My accountant has said the tax office does not issue receipts. 
Will this be enough as proof of income. 
Regards, 
Tim.

Can't answer the question directly but there's a lot of information here if you haven't already found these websites

 

Home Office publication on the financial requirement 

https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/826340/Appendix-FM-1-7-Financial-Requirement-ext_1.pdf

 

and the Appendix FM-SE: family members specified evidence

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/immigration-rules/immigration-rules-appendix-fm-se-family-members-specified-evidence

 

You list in the OP docs that are relevant only to the financial requirement - presumably that's not your full list of supporting documents?

Of course you can get a reciept of payed tax. You or your accountant should have that online or by mail every year after filing and approval of the company´s economical and yearly declaration.

My thoughts, it's my first time since returning from Thailand so I am unfamiliar. I will quiz him again. Do you think a tax return and bank statements will suffice.

Yes it will along with the SA302, a full set of your latest accounts, and validated bank statements for the period. Bank statements either need to be original posted statements. If not get a letter from the bank validating them or get them to stamp and date them. You don't actually need to have paid the tax if it's not due. My wife got her second FLR back in May and the tax is due to be paid at the end of January.

Regarding only tax and financials, my answer would be a yes.
