HMRC will no longer send certain paper forms from 15 August
HMRC has reviewed the paper Corporation Tax (CT) forms being issued and from 15 August will:
HMRC expects this move to have very little impact on agents’ ability to continue to carry out CT based work on behalf of their clients. Please comment below if issues do arise.
The forms affected are:
Acknowledgement of a company tax return letter (CT620 ACK) – will no longer be issued, but the information will be available online to agents and taxpayers (the Government Gateway email issued when a return is filed will now include a prompt to check CT View L&P for this acknowledgement).
Important dates letter (CT610/CT610A) – will no longer be issued but the information will be available online to agents and taxpayers.
Return reminder letter (CT205/CT205A) - When the company has an authorised agent the reminder letter (CT205A) will be issued only to the agent. The reminder letter (CT205) will continue to be issued to unrepresented companies.
Return and payment reminder letter (CT208 /CT208A) - When the company has an authorised agent the reminder letter (CT208A (PR2)) will be issued only to the agent. The reminder letter (CT208 (PR2)) will continue to be issued to unrepresented companies.
Statutory forms and notices:
HMRC has a legal obligation to serve the following notices on the company and will continue to do so:
Agent copies will also be sent unless the agent and registered office addresses are the same in which case only the company copy will be issued.
Guidance notes and inserts:
HMRC will no longer issue the following guidance notes and inserts which are available on GOV.UK:
Since the date of this article I have received CT620's (including notes) from HMRC.
I have not seen anything about this until now. Please advise where the CT620 ACK can now be found online as we cannot see this on our agent login? Also, I have filed returns in the last couple of days and there has been no amendment to the government gateway email to prompt to check CT View L&P for this acknowledgement.
