Resolved Question:

My company ceased trading on 31 March 2016 which is also the year end for the company. The following have been done:
Companies House return for year 2015-2016 has been submitted
HMRC return and computations for year 2015-2016 has been submitted
Corporation tax for year 2015-2016 has been paid
I understand that HMRC need to know about any corporation tax which is due for the period between the company ceasing to trade and company closure (1 April 2016 - 31 July 2016). There isn't any corporation tax due for this period and on the profit loss/balance sheet everything will be zeros.
I am going to send HMRC a copy of the DS01 with a letter explaining that the company will soon be dissolved by Companies House. From what I have read HMRC will accept just the profit/loss sheet to show there is no corporation tax due for this period - is this correct? (also do I need to send CT600?) or do I have to file accounts online (bearing in mind the current accounting period hasn't ended yet)
Thanks for your help.

Thank you for your question..

Once you have filed a copy of DS01 at the Companies House, you should send a copy of it with a covering letter stating your CT matters are up to date and that there is no further tax to pay.

This would suffice and there will be no need to file a CT600.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
