Joint filing – HMRC and Companies House
HMRC and Companies House now provide a joint filing service for company accounts.
This ‘one stop’ online facility allows some companies with more ‘straightforward’ tax affairs to submit their statutory accounts to HMRC as part of their Company Tax Return, and send these accounts – or an abbreviated version – to Companies House.
Before you can use this service, you need to have registered for HMRC Online Services and enrolled for Corporation Tax Online. You then use HMRC’s Corporation Tax online filing software to submit your accounts to both organisations. Alternatively you can use commercial software which is expected, in time, to offer a similar facility.
