I am a little bit stuck with my corporation tax return. I have very simple tax affairs and

Resolved Question:

I am a little bit stuck with my corporation tax return. I have very simple tax affairs and am finding the ct600 a bit confusing to fill out. I have the figures, turn over, expenses and profit before tax and I have paid corporation tax. I just need to know which number to put in which box.
My company was dormant 2012-2013 so profit and loss 0 for first year.
This year I have made £19000 turnover, staff expenses £7800, Other expenses £9650 so Profit before tax £1550.
Corporation tax at 20% £310 which has obviously already been paid by 31st of Dec 2014.
What do i put in square AC34 and AC40?
And what figures do I put in which box on the balance sheet?
My business is almost too simple for a complicated form like this!

Thank you for your reply.

You say your company was dormant during first year.

- did you have any called up share capital in year one. If so, what was it - 1 share of £1 or 100 shares of £1.

- did you have any cash balance (cash in hand or cash at business bank account) at either year end?

Please advise.

Mnay thanks
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes, 1 share of £1

My cash at bank at year end 2014 was £1550 which was my profit.

Cash at bank year end 2013 was £1.

Ive attached my dormant company accounts.

Thanks, ***** ***** helpful.

One more question. Is my called up share capital not paid 0? (AC460)

Expert:  taxadvisor.uk replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for your reply.

Your called up capital is paid thats why there is a figure in AC70 and AC71.
It is the same as issued share capital.

If you are happy and there are no more issues I will appreciate if you would kindly rate/accept the service I provided to ensure I get credited for it.
