Reminder on changes to Corporation Tax notices

On 19 September 2016 HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) decided to stop sending out paper copies of several important documents relating to Corporation Tax.

Despite this move taking place nearly two years ago, a quick search online indicates that many taxpayers are not aware that HMRC has changed some of its administration procedures for Corporation Tax returns.

The changes implemented by the Revenue, as part of a cost-cutting exercise, saw it stop sending out paper versions of:

  • acknowledgement of receipt of a Corporation Tax return (CT620 ACK)
  • letter showing the key corporation tax filing and payment dates (CT610/CT610A)
  • Budget insert which shows the changes to Corporation Tax following the Budget and is usually issued with the notice to deliver a company tax return – this will be made available online instead
  • authorising your agent form (64-8) which used to be issued with the “Information for new companies letter” (Form CT41G)
  • filing reminder letters which used to be issued 28 days before the return due date
  • notes issued with Corporation Tax return
  • various other Corporation Tax forms such as the notice of amendment to a return.

Following these changes, companies and agents are now expected to check Corporation Tax via the Online View Liabilities and Payments section of HMRC’s website to see details of their return.
