Taxfiler CT600 submission error

Error: The submission of this document has failed due to departmental specific business logic...

Didn't find your answer?


I am receiving this error below when submitting my first CT600 return on the Taxfiler software. Have spoken to HMRC and they said all looks well from their side. Have also asked Taxfiler but meanwhile wanted to know whether anyone knew why this error is occurring:

The submission of this document has failed due to departmental specific business logic in the Body tag.

cvc-complex-type.2.4.a: Invalid content was found starting with element 'ix:nonnumeric'. One of '{"":footnote, "":fraction, "":nonFraction, "":numerator, "":denominator, "":nonNumeric, "":tuple, "":header, "":exclude}' is expected.

It's a shame that computer programmers seem unable to produce intelligible error messages.

Are you using the correct user credentials for corporation tax?

I agree the messages are very complex to work out

It means that you have typed something that HMRC's computer cant read. Usually something to do with the wrong UTR number or possibly the wrong address?

Could be something as trivial as a . or a , or as invisible as a space.

Is the accounts start date after 1/1/2016?

I believe HMRC systems can generate this error if you include iXBRL accounts that aren't using the updated format for the new FRS.

Looks like it's a case error. Expects to see "nonNumeric" with a capital N, instead it got "nonnumeric" with a lowercase n.

Not sure which side has the problem, but don't think it's to do with anything you've input yourself.

You could try downloading the iXBRL file, opening in a text editor (notepad would do). Search for the string "nonnumeric" and replace it with "nonNumeric", save the file and try to upload it in TaxFiler (you can choose to upload ixbrl accounts instead of using the TF generated ones).

The "non numeric" phrase might indicate that the letter O has been used instead of the number 0 somewhere - or a capital letter I rather than the number 1.
Unlikely to be in the main accounts figures themselves as otherwise the TB wouldn't balance, so look at other places where manual input of numbers is involved (eg. company number, UTR, staff number note, share numbers note).
