Hi all,

I have a client who received a £150 fine from comp house for late filing of abbr accounts to ch, my question is, is this an allowable expense for the ct600?.

Many Thanks in advance, Lor.

    I don't know much about Companies House fines, but as a general rule any costs which are incurred by "breaking the law" are not allowable. Hence fines and penalties are not allowable expenses. Would like someone else to clarify this though!

    No. Debit bank, credit P&L. Then disallow on the tax computation. It has nothing to do with the director's loan.

    why do you need to reverse the bank transaction if payment has been made? just disallow the payment in the tax comp.

    Hi, I've been thinking about this again today as I've left it to mull over for a few days, the bank trans has gone out the bank £150.00 and I have dr expense account, so believe my best action would be to disallow on the tax comp, as stated above.
