Filing dates?

Filing dates?

Didn't find your answer?

Search AccountingWEB

Hi All

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.

Many thanks

Yes, you're correct. For tax purposes a chargeable accounting period will begin on 26/8 as that's the date you began to trade. Incorporation doesn't trigger a chargeable accounting period.

The important thing to remember ...

... is because you shortened the period, the CT600 is due by 31st March 2012, unusually before the Companies House filing date of 07/04/12 ( and the 31/03/12 set will be due at Companies House 31/12/12 and on 31/12 thereafter)

And another important thing to remember ...

... is that although the filing date for the CT600 is 31/03/12, no penalty will be charged provided it is filed by 07/04/12.

Thank's BKD

Touche, you learn something everyday!

The idiosyncrasies of the UK tax system are as fascinating as our language :o)

would that not be ...

idiosyncracy's or idiosyncrasies' ?

My meaning was non-possessive plural with no omissions needing an apostrophe so I stand by it, but, I fear we are more than a tad off topic!

Missed the point - perhaps too far off topic!

I was referring to "Thank's"  (wondering why your apostrophe's (sic) were not consistent)

;)

There's nothing worse than an incorrect apostrophe - as I keep telling my 8 and 10 year old boys!

Anyway thanks for your help, I was just panicking about attaching a set of accounts to a tax return which included a part dormant period.

I was giving multiple "thank yous" ...

... the apostrophe replaced "you"

:oP

Ah, but ...

... "thanks" is already an abbreviation of "thank you". So the multiple ought to have been thankses, or thanks's or thanks'

Sorry for delay in replying ...

... I have been off rending my clothes, flagellating myself vigourously with birch twigs and then donning sack cloth and ashes for making such a stupid and rudimentary error, the pointing out of which I thank you for - but only once!

I can't imagine it is as much fun as your other hobbies ... but maybe you have a 'secret' side to your personality?

(I'm ready for a quick getaway!)

Which is correct?

St James Park

St James' Park

St Jame's Park

Sports Direct Arena

I'd prefer St James' Park but I think it's the latter.

St. James's Park?

with the fullstop - St. - to denote the abbreviation of Saint and the apostrophe - 's - to indicate the possessive of St. James.

St. James' Park

Would not be incorrect!

I'm game if you are Shirley, especially as your initials fit the bill!

St. James' Park ...

... would be correct, if we are talking about more than one St. James.
