CT600 won't file

CT600 year ended 30 April 2020 rejected

Didn't find your answer?

Using VT and Taxcalc the CT600 for year to April 2020 was rejected. Actually got through to a very sweet young lady on HMRC Online Services this morning who couldn't understand the error message she was looking at. The CT600 wanted confirmation the Company is a partner in a firm.  Confirmed "no".  The next thing she said was there's usually a delay before HMRC CT computer can receive AP ending on or after 31 March 2020 (which we all know).  Best suggestion- try again about 1 July. Swift check of calendar- it's 1 July today. "Oh" came the reply- just keep trying.  45 minutes of my life wasted- won't get that back.

Hence hoping I can get some sense from the community- anyone else struggling with CT600 online yesterday or today?  Whilst this case has a CT liability, had there been a loss available to carry back, that would make life difficult for client explanation.......

Was that a return where tax was payable? My understanding is that losses (in year or b/fwd exceeding cy profits) will go through. If tax is payable, then the software wont validate against the tax liability that HMRC are 'expecting' and it will fail.

This has been covered on a few threads now - the last one I saw was this: https://www.accountingweb.co.uk/any-answers/hmrc-not-accepting-ct-returns

HMRC don't yet realise that the CT rate stayed at 19% rather than going down to 17% (or if they do, they haven't told their computer).

It will be fixed any day, apparently

Doesn't this happen every year, and we're given the Royal Assent blah as an explanation?

I don't think so - or, at least, not when the rates are unchanged. This is a special one because:
1) It relates to a change of rate
2) The irony is that the change never even happened
3) It's not like HMRC didn't have more than ample notice for this

I think HMRC have updated their systems so it is presumably a Taxcalc issue...?

Submitted yesterday using Taxcalc. Software wouldn't allow filing until HMRC updated its systems which was due 26th June, apparently. But I tried everyday since then and finally was able to submit 30th June.
