Display of company type
The type of company is displayed in functions:
- RAMA (Record / Amend Assessment) on screen COT121F
- DASS (Display Assessment) on screen COT206M
- RRAS (Request Reissue of Assessment) on screen COT123M.
If there was no entry on the CT600 return form, or in the case of RAMA, if the return has not yet been received, the field is empty. Where there is an entry, it is either the company type shown on the return form or entered or amended in function MAPS (Maintain AP signals).
Function RAMA uses the company type to validate the rates of tax used in the assessment where appropriate, but allows you to overwrite those rates if required.
