Hi.... this is for a different company than the one we looked at last. I can't access the CT600 for this company but it was a very straightforward return for that year...v small revenue, some costs, actually costs exceeded revenue by 1780. No admin or diet costs, no salaries, no investments, no depreciation etc.

Simon, thank you for your reply.

Assuming the loss of £1,780 is also the tax loss in that year, then when you make your tax provision for this year you would base it on (2,707-1,780) = £927 x 20% = £185
Box AC34 = 185
Box AC36 = 2,522

You would also show this figure as a creditor in Box AC58.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.

Thank you very much. I meant to add, Net current liabilities for the last period were £2930 which were payment of costs by myself on behalf of th company for which I was not yet paid back at the end of the period, but WAS paid back in the current period out of the cash at bank...where is this reflected...just as a lower cash at bank value?

Thank you for your reply and further question.Amounts owing to you in at end of last year would have been reflected inCreditors due within one year AC58.If this amount was repaid in the current year accounts then your bank balance AC54 would have shown a reduction of £2,930 to cover payment and also Creditors AC58 would have gone down by same amount.
