Corporation Tax online filing
Online corporation tax filing became compulsory for company tax returns delivered after 31 March 2011 for accounting periods ending after 31 March 2010.
Company Tax returns now have to be filed using the iXBRL data standard using either HMRC’s own software or third-party commercial software. Businesses that use third-party commercial software should refer to the HMRC list of recognised commercial software.
The growing list has recently been updated once again and presents the approved suppliers in two categories:
- Software applications that produce and submit a CT600 with PDF
- Software applications or services that produce iXBRL Accounts and/or iXBRL Computations. This list is divided into three sub-categories.
HMRC remind businesses that they will not recommend or endorse one product over another and do not provide any support for commercial software.
