Company tax returns for period ending on/after 1 April 2020

May 05, 2020

HMRC are advising companies not to submit corporation tax returns for accounting periods ending on or after 1 April 2020 until it has updated its systems. 

Company Tax Returns for accounting periods ending on or after 1 April 2020 with zero tax chargeable (nil returns) can still be submitted online, as the tax rate change has no impact. 

The HMRC free filing service (CATO) will only support accounting periods ending on or before 31 March 2020 until the service is updated. 

If you have an urgent need to file your Company Tax Return before the system is updated, for an accounting period ending after 31 March 2020, contact the Corporation Tax helpline.
