By when should you submit financial statements in iXBRL format along with CT600 and what is the penalty for delay why file in iXBRL

Every business entity required to file their company tax returns must prepare, at the end of its financial year:

  • full statutory annual accounts
  • a Company Tax Return

Please bear in mind that you still need to file your company tax returns even if your company has made a loss, or if you have no Corporation Tax to pay.

You have different deadlines for sending your accounts to Companies House and your tax return to HMRC, but you may be able send them at the same time. If your company is small, a micro entity or dormant, you might be able to send simpler (‘abridged’) accounts.

You need your accounts and tax return to meet deadlines for filing with Companies House and HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

The table below sets out the deadline for different filings :

Action Deadline
File first accounts with Companies House 21 months after the date you registered with Companies House
File annual accounts with Companies House 9 months after your company’s financial year ends
Pay Corporation Tax or tell HMRC that your limited company does not owe any 9 months and 1 day after your ‘accounting period’ for Corporation Tax ends
File a Company Tax Return 12 months after your accounting period for Corporation Tax ends
