Couldn't agree more with Anne. Let's hope Boris isn't pressurised into changing his mind. The sooner we see the back of that supercilious, attention-seeking man the better.

No, it's not you. If you click "Start Now", click "who can use webfiling", go to the top left of the page and click "sign in", you should get back to the original sign in page which has worked fine for years.
But like HMRC, it's compulsory to change what's been working well to keep their IT people in a job.

Yes, unless the company is in the trade of making investments (banks etc.) I've prepared many CT returns with CT liabilities of a fiver or so for this reason.

I'm just grateful that reimbursed expenses don't have to be put on the P11D any more and reclaimed by the employee either on their tax return or some other way. I know most people didn't bother (including me) but at least we're not breaking the law now.
Can't really see the problem with monthly expense claims providing there are proper policies in place - if not it's tough luck on the employer.

Be careful SXGuy. You'll frighten the climate change activists with all those facts. Please stick to the script with all the unsubstantiated rhetoric from these nutters.

It may sound heartless but you've entered into a contract with a company that has never filed accounts which comes under the category of "caveat emptor".
I'd only part with money to a company in this situation on the basis that I could afford to lose it.
HMRC are not interested in anything that doesn't involve "easy targets" which usually means imposing computer generated penalties.
I'd just write it off to experience and move on.

You may wish to check your engagement letter/letters. If the alleged guarantee is part of the limited company's engagement letter it's likely an invalid term simply because the contract is between the company and the accountant. As an accountant it's very difficult to get these guarantees right legally.

Only for AMLR purposes Lion. Spoke to a partner in a medium sized firm recently who was tearing his hair out because the Institute wanted them to conduct CRB checks on all the partners - they'll be wanting their shoe sizes next.

Thank you for reminding me of one of the reasons I jumped ship 14 years ago.
