Nil Accounts and Tax Return for Company about to be dissolved


J

jim

I set up a limited company on 10/10/2002 and then never got to a stage where
I traded. I am now dropping the project but need to produce accounts for
10/10/2002-31/10/2003. Also a company tax return is required, I have the
form to fill in.

Questions:

Should I be able to do the accounts myself (any pointers to examples,
completed ones I can copy?).
Even if I produce them, do they need an accountants signature?
How much would an accountant charge for these account (all boxes zero except
1 non-paid up share).
When I dissolve the company - will further account be required?



Regards
Jim

Just fill these in

and send to Companies House.

Tell the Inland Revenue you have never traded.

Just fill these in
Don't bother with the DCA, just do the 652.

So if the company is struck off, I don't owe companies house a set of
account?

But I still owe a tax return to IR, which could be more difficult without
the DCA?

Seeing as there are only about 15 boxes I might as well fill it in.

Mike is correct but as you say there isn't much to do with the DCA.
The IR should withdraw their tax return request if you tell them it is
a dormant company.
