    Set up Limited Company last April do I need to send tax return?

    I set up a limited company on 5th April 2019

    Purchased a property in limited company name in August 2019

    I have not received any income only expenses

    Do i need to send a tax return by Jan 31st?

    The date scheduled for filing the company's annual account will be given in the company's record, kept by Companies House. I would expect your company's first year trading period will run from 5th April 2019 to 5th April 2020.
    So the company should file an annual account at Companies House before 31 Dec 2020 ( 9 months from year end 5th April 2020 ) and should expect to submit a 2019/20 company tax return later this year.

    If you submitted a personal tax return before 31 Jan last year, then you probably have to submit again before the end of this month.

      You can't file a tax return until after the tax year has ended.
      my LTD company goes from June 30th to June 29th and I have to have done and dusted the tax return for corporation tax by March 31st.
      don't confuse self assessment tax return with LTD company one. They are significantly different.

        So as your tax year ends on June 29th 2020, you will have to complete the tax return by March 31st 2021?

        I think this is what i was doing.

        So as a Limited Company, all I have to concern myself with is my tax return being due by 31st December 2020?

          "You" need to do tax return for usual tax years.

          The company will probably have different dates for tax, especially in 1st year.

          We're any assets -eg property - transferred? May be CGT return also

            Joking aside, don't do this.

            You sound like you need an accountant, because you'll need someone to create the annual accounts (and carry forward some losses) as well as sort out your taxes.
            Making mistakes with HMRC and Companies House can be complicated and expensive to sort out.
            When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
            Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

              I always check the advice given by my accountant with a check on gov.uk and a Google search. They rarely contradict.

                A great deal of information found by google (and on the web, generally) is out of date or relates to a different country or jusisdiction.
                And I have a great mistrust of .gov.uk information generally.

                I have several errors that I have reported over the years which are still uncorrected.

                  Hi

                  I remember there being a rental income limit where you don't need to actually complete a property tax return. Instead of completing the tax return you can write a letter to the tax office declaring the income and net profit. Is this still in practise?

                  Also, if you do...

                  When they contact HMRC to tell them they're starting a new business, HMRC will tell them how they want it reported.
                  If it's trivial, they may collect the tax through PAYE and allow a simple adjustment at the end of the year, but normally they seem to default to asking for a full return.

                  Civil partnership is essentially the same as marriage for tax purposes.

                  Unmarried couples (who aren't in a civil partnership) don't have to split the ownership to account for the income how they see fit, and no form 17 is needed.
                  And no change of ownership means no lender issues....

                  Hi All

                  Just bought a BTL with my partner

                  im in the 40% tax bracket and she doesn't work so we'll be splitting the income 1%/99%

                  in the 1st year of ownership, I believe we'd benefit more if I took 99% income - as then I'd also take 99% of any running costs for that...

                  Hi,
                  Would you therefore class yourselves as a Civil partnership and are living together? I don't think a simple letter will suffice.
                  Joint Tenants are unable to split the ownership. You need to be Tenants in Common, then you need to complete Form 17.

                  However, the Mortgage...

                  Obviously you should take advice from your solicitor over any opinion I offer.

                  The situation with jointly owned property for married couples is different to that of non-married couples.
                  There's a presumption that married couples (while having separate tax affairs) share everything...

                  So yes this sounds like it's fine to do.
                  each year we simply decide the split and let HMRC know with a simple letter
                  And yes I understand ref product fees and now getting less relief under new rules

                  I appreciate tax evasion and avoidance are different jpkeates, but where do you draw the line?

                  My husband and I changed a BTL from joint names to my sole name to save tax. I was asked by my solicitor at the time whether I was likely to sell it in the near future because if HMRC deemed that...
