Annual Accounts

Companies need to submit their statutory accounts to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) as part of their Company Tax Return. These accounts – or an abbreviated version – must also be submitted to Companies House.

HMRC and Companies House provide a joint filing service that enables you to submit company accounts online to both organisations, using the data you enter on the accounts template provided in HMRC’s Corporation Tax online filing software. You can use this service to submit full statutory accounts to HMRC and full statutory, abbreviated or dormant accounts to Companies House.

On this page you’ll find links to sample sets of company accounts that are suitable for this service. This page also contains a link to sample full statutory accounts that can be submitted using the earlier version of HMRC’s software.

Additionally, if you choose to use the computations template contained in HMRC’s online filing software to submit your Corporation Tax computations, you’ll find an example of the entries you can include.
