How to Submit XML/iXBRL accounts to Companies House

ketskets New MemberRegistered Posts: 5

I would like to submit xml/iXBRL accounts to companies online, I have called the Companies House and did not get much help at all.

Have used VT+ accounts to create XML/iXBRL file, now how can I submit the accounts online?

Can somebody put me in right direction?

    Thank you for asking the question.
    Sorry I cannot help but I have just started using VT accounts and am keen to see if anyone can help.

    I use VT but for filing at Companies House I use their own product. I don't think VT can send an iXbrl form straight to Co House; rather i think it is for attachment to a CT600. I didn't think iXBrl was mandatory yet anyway. I've not submitted anything by iXbrl yet.

    I won't be submitting ixbrl to Companies House either, the only advantage is joint filing but that would mean filing full accounts - not much point when we deal with FRSSE companies.
