We shall in respect of the accounting period of the business prepare a computation of the profits, adjusted in accordance with provisions of the relevant tax legislation, for the purposes of assessment to Corporation Tax.

Following your approval of the Accounts we will complete Annual Return form CT600 and submit to HM Revenue & Customs and will deal with all correspondence with HMRC, agree Notices of Assessment, tax demands and tax repayments.

We will lodge formal notice of appeal against excessive or incorrect Tax Demands/Assessments within the statutory 30 day period where notice of such Assessment is received by us. We shall also, where appropriate, make formal applications for postponement of the tax in dispute and will advise you as to the appropriate payments on account.  We will inform you of the Tax payable and the due date thereof.  (If tax is not paid by the due date, interest may be charged by HMRC and this interest is not deductible for Income Tax purposes.).



All Claims are screened through HMRC to determine if a refund is due. This process typically takes between 4 and 12 weeks. Once this process is complete, if a refund is due, you will receive directly from HMRC notification of the amount of any refund. Any refund will be paid directly to us. This payment may take up to 5 weeks following your confirmation letter to reach us. Once we receive payment we will deduct our charges and issue you with a cheque in our next payment run.

If you don’t receive a cheque or payment on the account within 9 weeks of confirmation from HMRC please let us know and we look into.
