I have been asked to produce a set of accounts for a small LTD company. It is the first year of accounts so nothing has been submitted to CH or HMRC to date. However 2 months ago the DS01 was submitted before the final accounts and CT was submitted. It has been recieved and the first Gazette was posted. If nothing is contested then the LTD Co will be struck off in the next few days.. and this is before I will be able to prepare the accounts as I am awaiting information.
From research it seems that these final accounts will not be needed as by the time they are ready to be submitted the company will no longer exsist. The CT is expected to be minimal if of any value at all so should I still prepare the accounts? If the company has been struck off HMRC will not be able to do anything in terms of chasing the return or tax if the company no longer exsists?
