HMRC will stop providing some paper forms for corporation tax as part of its move towards digital tax accounts to make things easier for you.
The changes to business tax accounts will come into effect from 15 August 2016.
HMRC wants to be able to provide electronic forms accessible via a computer, and in preparation has reviewed the corporation tax paper forms that are currently issued.
The plans include:
- stop issuing paper forms when it can otherwise be filled in digitally
- duplicate forms will stop being issued in cases where the agent and registered office are the same on HMRC’s corporation tax system
- paper versions of guidance notes will only be available digitally.
HMRC claims the change will have little impact on companies’ ability to meet their corporation tax obligations, and that it believes the process may be easier and quicker.
