I have a client that is a CASC that has been asked to complete a Corporation Tax return by HMRC. I can submit the accounts for the return as a PDF attachment rather than IXBRL. However, the software I use doesn't produce CASC accounts and I am loath to buy software that does. The CASC is not incorporated and as such doesnt have to submit accounts in accordance with the Companies Act.
Will a simple P&L and Balance Sheet which I can produce using the bookkeeping software surfice or do HMRC expect the accounts to be submitted in a certain format? If they need to be submitted in a precribed format is there anywhere I can get a proforma set of accounts where I can fill in the blanks?
