500 £ HMRC Interest income after stopped trading

Didn't find your answer?

I had a ltd company last year but stopped trading last year. I filed the last year tax return and paid corporate tax.

Now I received early payment interest income from HMRC of 500 £.

Am I supposed to file a corporate tax return for this year, this is the only income. I thought a filing is subject to a minimum income 1,000£.

How is the easiest way to treat a post receipt in a ltd company of negible interest income from HMRC after a company has stopped trading.

Oh dear.

A little knowledge is a very dangerous thing.

In previous posts/comments earlier this year, OP says "I am an accountant" ... but it's not clear why thought it was sensible to set up a Limited company in mid 2022 - let alone then to close it a year or so later.

Hopefully any future 'ideas' will be run past a paid adviser in advance.

unfortunately that allowance is not available for limited companies - the relevant guidance doesnt make that clear unfortunately.

The article on this link refers to self employment and not to Ltd companies.
