I have to send Tax return for no trading companie

I need simple software or quote from an accountant to send Tax return for no trading companie

Didn't find your answer?

Hello

I dissolved 2 companies that each one have 1 year old, I didn't make any trading and didn't have any income with these companies and I don't have VAT number.
I received mails from HRMC to fill tax return for these 2 companies, the problem is there's a bug for Tax filling service on HRMC website "File your accounts and tax return online" (sorry we are experiencing some difficulties...)
I'm ready to pay for a simple software or a good price from a accountant

I asked for some cloud softwares but they enable only accountants to fill final accounts & tax return for a closing company

Thank you in advance

If the companies are dissolved (as you say) then they no longer exist and you do not have to do anything.

Although I would write to / call HMRC and let them know. Otherwise they just keep chasing and will issue penalties, appoint debt collectors, waste lots of paper and then 2 years later finally realise they cant chase a company that doesn't exist.

It's HMRC. You're not taking the hint.

If these companies are struck off, who's going to sign the returns? You can't - you're not a director or secretary. Nobody is.

Why are you opening other people's mail ?

Just send it back, unopened.

It's not your mail, it's mail addressed to a company that doesn't exist.

How can it be your mail - unless it is addressed to you personally without any reference to the company? If it is addressed to you in your capacity as director of the company and the company no longer exists then neither does the office of director.

As duggimon and ruddles correctly say, no it isn't.

Why not? It is the best advice that you will get.

Especially since you specifically asked "just tell me if I there's a way to avoid sending tax return"

No you don't

You are wasting your own time and that of everyone else that has taken the trouble to advise you what you should do. You are free to ignore that advice, of course, but I suggest that you go and try another forum. It is highly unlikely that you are going to get the answer that you want here.

You asked ""just tell me if I there's a way to avoid sending tax return"". You have been given the answer several times. Now go away.

It doesn't matter how many times you hit the 'Post reply' button, it won't change your situation.

You said: "I dissolved 2 companies that each one have 1 year old, I didn't make any trading and didn't have any income with these companies and I don't have VAT number."
Either that sentence contains inaccuracies or the advice you've received so far is spot on.

You said: "I'm ready to pay for a simple software or a good price from a accountant .. to fill final accounts & tax return for a closing company."
It may surprise you, but although accountants (like most people) are keen to get a new client & charge them ... the lack of offers here is a strong indication that (a) you don't need to spend your money, and (b) they don't want you as a client.

Thank you

The advice is that you don't need software because you don't need to submit. In fact, it's questionable whether it's lawful for you to submit.

I must admit that I'm getting a bit tired of folk who are given the right answer and aren't even smart enough to see it.

Unless it has all changed, HMRC do not require tax returns to be filed for non-trading companies UNTIL they started trading.

I wrote to HMRC to explain my client's company was not trading and they replied (dated 2007) confirming that since my client's company is dormant, no accounts or tax returns are required. They subsequently issued (in 2010) a form 'Corporation Tax Review' "to decide whether the company should make returns in future". I haven't heard from them since and the company is still dormant.

In other words, write to HMRC and give them the facts. Otherwise just return their mail as "Gone Away", since you say the companies do not exist.

Hope that helps.

Thank you very much sir, in 2019 a friend who was in the same case (no trading company) wrote to HRMC but he received again a mail to send tax return, but I thank you all for this advice

It's HMRC. If he got a letter from HRMC, he shouldn't send them a return.

There is a big difference between a company that is alive but dormant - HMRC may or may not require a tax return (if they do, it is probably wise to file one) - and a company that no longer exists, so that no-one has any capacity to file a return. For the last time, if the company is dead then there is no company to file a return.
