Filing Company Tax Returns online
Online filing of Company Tax Returns will become mandatory for all returns delivered after 31 March 2011 for accounting periods ending after 31 March 2010.
HMRC have published two new guides aimed at taxpayers who will be enrolling to file online company tax returns for the first time.
The first guide ‘Signing up for Corporation Tax Online: a beginner’s guide’ is intended for businesses which have not yet registered to use HMRC’s Corporation Tax Online service. The guide includes detailed instructions as to how to register and enrol to use the online service. Businesses need to register for the online service regardless of whether they will be using HMRC’s own filing software or commercially available software.
The second guide ‘Filing your Company Tax Return online: a beginner’s guide’ provides instructions for businesses that use HMRC’s own software. The guide includes online screen shots to help educate users as to the look and feel of the software.
