Corporation Tax self-assessment (CTSA): the payment obligation: Due dates

CT is normally due and payable nine months and one day from the end of an accounting period.  There are examples at CTM01800, which reflect the legal position under CTSA and CT Pay & File.

For earlier accounting periods the extra day beyond nine months was allowed by concession.
