“Making tax digital” is the latest change to CT600 forms that will affect taxpayers and although it is some distance away HMRC is making major structural changes in preparation. The latest moves, which it announced on 19 September 2016, include withdrawing tax return confirmations for companies.
After the HMRC announcement they will no longer issue an automatic form to confirm that your company’s CT600 tax return has been successfully received and processed. From now an e-mail will be sent to your company or its authorised agent advising that you should check on your online account for confirmation of receipt and the amounts due.
You will often have seen warnings about phishing – spoof or fraudulent – emails that purport to come from HMRC. These new notifications will tell you to login to your online account. Never click through any links – instead type the link into your browser and login from there. Yes, the guidance conflicts with the practice they now advice, but that’s their perogative.
