I am just about to file a set of limited company accounts and tax return and would just like confirmation that I have got my dates correct. I've read the notes about 'accounting periods' on the CT603 but am now getting more confused.
Company incorporated 7/7/10
Commenced trading 26/8/10
Accounting period for CT603 26/8/10 to 31/3/11
I have prepared accounts from 7/7/10 - 31/3/11. Are these the correct accounting dates to go with the tax return? I have changed the accounting ref date at Companies House to the 31st March and I have made a note in the director's report that incorporation was the 7 July but that it commenced trading on the 26th August.
