Members must not create, encourage or promote tax planning arrangements or structures that: i) set out to achieve results that are contrary to the clear intention of Parliament in enacting relevant legislation; and/or ii) are highly artificial or highly contrived and seek to exploit shortcomings within the relevant legislation.

Don't believe it's been published yet. My present thoughts are that it will be the local authority who will administer this. I'd expect it to be done via the normal business rates bills for 2020/2021 and they will be amended in due course.
The councils getting the money to distribute seems to be confirmed by the comments by BEIS:
It also says "up to £3,000"...?!

This links to a spreadsheet, but it only covers up to 2018/19 at present.

For address labels I would suggest a dedicated Brother printer - these are nice and cheap (<£50) and are easier than using a big laser to produce single labels.
For example QL700B - £40 at present - https://www.ebuyer.com/899660-brother-ql-700b-address-label-printer-incl... (other suppliers are available).

I use 3 screens and wouldn't be without them. In minor moments of madness, I think about extending that to 4.
Same, but was wondering about moving to 6.... !

A quick update (as we have another client getting thousands from this switch):
The RBS agent I have chatted with online (via the chatbot window) has stated that "it is expected that the receipt of any cash offer will be subject to tax. HMRC has confirmed that cash awards should not attract VAT".

I would recommend crunching the numbers before jumping to opt to tax.
Only if the projections show benefits is making the option worthwhile.
Why the secrecy?

Sounds like this could be done within your spreadsheet using Excel VBA, at a push!
Excel VBA has a Microsoft XML library that may help with this parsing process.
An example of possible code that could be hacked around to do this is available online at https://www.accessforums.net/showthread.php?t=28974&highlight=Timegenie+...
Whether it is worth paying someone to code this up depends on how much data is being pulled down.
Your spreadsheet could contain a record of each company's latest accounts year end and then the VBA could step through these and use the Co's House API to compare if there are newer accounts available.
These new accounts could be pulled down as iXBRL and then processed using code like above.
A more elegant and robust solution would be to code a full application for this (e.g. C++), but that would presumably be more expensive and perhaps overkill?

See HMRC PAYE Manual at https://www.gov.uk/hmrc-internal-manuals/paye-manual/paye20025 for more details of how to do this. (Yes, it's possible!).
