Your Corporate Tax Returns Made Simple
You can file your Corporation Tax Return online at HMRC's website, you will need to file your company accounts separately with Companies House.
If you hire a third party to do this for you they can ensure that it is done before the deadlines saving you money and time, as it can be a complex accounting process determining how much corporation tax your company owes.
To file them online you will need your username and password, which you can get by registering your company.
To check if a company is still in business you need either the company registration number or the company name and you can check online on the government website or with Companies House.
If your company is dormant and you have informed HMRC of this then you do not need to file a Company Tax Return or pay corporation tax.
However, you will still need to file a confirmation statement and annual accounts.
Over the course of 12 months, corporation tax is normally paid in quarterly installments, or every three months.
Two installments will be due before the end of your accounting period.
If you are a limited company, and you have made any profit, then you need to pay corporation tax.
You will need to complete and file a CT600 form with HMRC each year.
