I setup a small limited company back on the 19th december 2020, I told my accountant that my anticipated date to start trading on the 15th January 2021, so she said she has informed HMRC of that. But unfortunately, I had to travel abroad to see a terminally ill member of the family and didn't come back until late february, so I actually started trading on 26th March.
So the annual accounts are from 19th december 2020 to 31st december 2021, for company house, with profits and loss accounts from 26th march to 31st december.
My accountant says that even though I started on 26th March, the CT600 dates are gonna be from 19th december 2020 to 19th december 2021 then another one from 19th december 2021 to 31st december 2021. Does it matter? Or do you have to file from 19th december 2020 to 26th March for saying I was dormant then one from 26th march to 31st December?
