    If a limited company was set up on e.g. 16th March 2018, how many tax returns does the company have to send in in the first year, and up to what dates?

    Tax returns can only cover a maximum of 12 months, so you will need to file two tax returns in respect of the first accounting period assuming a 31 March year end. Guidance here: https://www.gov.uk/first-company-accounts-and-return.

    Assuming the company started trading on the day of incorporation the tax returns will cover 16th March 2018 to 15th March 2019 (12 months) and 16th March 2019 to 31st March 2019 (ie up to the end of the accounting period).
