The shares in the Ireland company are owned by me. The company in Ireland does not own shares in the UK company.
Unlike usual companies in the UK with a date of incorporation, the Companies house just says 'date of registration'. When I spoke to the companies house UK, they said that the date of registration will not affect the date of filing accounts as in Ireland which is September and so the Company number starts with BR and that after filing the accounts in the UK I must file the same in Ireland.
Date of registration is 01 May 2013
Thank you Tony.
Can I just confirm that tax will be paid on the income earned in the UK only.
As far as I'm concerned, the UK registered company will only pay corporation tax in the UK as it is controlled from the UK by you and I'm assuming you are tax resident in the UK.
You ought to ask Companies House why they want accounts for a September year end and why they are connecting the UK company to the Irish company.
