Each year HMRC issues a notice to file a corporation tax return which must be submitted within 12 months of the end of the accounting period. We can prepare your return and advise on tax.

Filing your company tax return - This has to be done online and the accounts and computations are sent at the same time. A penalty is due if it is filed late. The return can be amended by the company within 12 months of the statutory filing date.

HMRC check returns and can enquire into the completeness and accuracy of a return.
