Use HM Revenue and Customs’ (HMRC’s) online service to file a tax return for your company, charity or association.
You’ll need your company’s annual accounts. They must be ‘balanced’, so your total assets should match what you owe.
If you’re an unincorporated association like a sports club, you’ll need to upload a PDF of your accounts.
There’s a different process if you only need to file your accounts or annual return with Companies House.
Before you start
You’ll need your:
- Government Gateway user ID and password - register for a HMRC online account if you don’t have one
- Companies House password and authentication code if you’re filing your accounts with Companies House at the same time - register online with Companies House if you haven’t already
When to use commercial software
You’ll need to use commercial software if you want to file:
- company accounts to Companies House and your turnover is more than £6.5 million
- a Company Tax Return to HMRC and your turnover is more than £632,000
