HMRC will stop providing some paper forms for corporation tax as part of its move towards digital tax accounts.
The changes to business tax accounts will come into effect from 15 August 2016.
HMRC wants be able to provide paper forms electronically, and in preparation has reviewed the corporation tax paper forms that are currently issued.
The plans include:
- Stop issuing paper forms where a digital alternative is available
- Duplicate forms will stop being issued in cases where the agent and registered office are the same on HMRC’s corporation tax system
- Paper versions of guidance notes will only be available digitally.
HMRC claims the change will have little impact on companies’ ability to meet their corporation tax obligations, and that it believes it the process may be easier and quicker.
