Hi

I usually use the HMRC software for limited company CT600 (at the same time filing accounts at Companies House)

I have just taken on a new client with a first set of accounts that cover 389 days

The HMRC software has sent the accounts off to CH without problem but I have run into difficulties due to the long period of account.....I think I need to IXBRL the CT600/company accounts?

As this is the first time in two years that HMRC software is not sufficient for my needs I am reluctant to purchase software that I may not use going forwards....

Any ideas for an economical solution would be gratefully received

    A CT600 can only cover 12 months.

    You submit 2 CT600s, with 1 set of accounts (or 2 identical sets of accounts).

    Apologies!...my bad! :-(

    I had misunderstood the wording on the HMRC website.......it is possible to use the HMRC software for tagging tax comps for long periods of account...

    Many thanks for the reply
