All About iXBRL Tagging

In this section we talk about iXBRL tagging for converting statutory accounts and tax computations into iXBRL format.This format is required as a part of Corporation Tax Returns filing (CT600) with HMRC and also for filing annual accounts with Companies House

HMRC and Companies House introduced a joint filing service for company accounts in October 2010. Starting from 1 April 2011, most companies must file their Company Tax Returns including financial statutory accounts and tax computations in iXBRL format, for accounting periods after 31 March 2010.

For your benefit we have collated relevant information related to XBRL filing with HMRC. The information is provided as a guide only and is not professional advice including legal advice.
