Legislative and compliance updates

ITS 55824 - Research & Development Expenditure Credit previously ATL

The references to “ATL” have been replaced with the correct reference of Research & development expenditure credit (“RDEC”) across the software including the relevant data entry windows and associated computational reports.

ITS 55919 - R&D Expenditure credit b/fwd not available for CY repayment

In some scenarios it is possible to claim repayment of an Expenditure Credit that was brought forward from a previous period. It does not apply to all scenarios.

To accommodate this a new box has been incorporated into the Tax credits data entry window within the Tax planning area.

Enter the amount of Tax credit b/fwd that is now due for repayment in the RDEC b/fwd repayable box. This amount is then included in the total tax credit claimed for repayment.

ITS 55965 - CT600 - Dividends received grossed up for dividends paid post 6/4/2016

The change brought about by the Budget 2016 in relation to dividends was not reflected in the population of the form CT600. Dividends received post 6/4/2016 were incorrectly grossed up in box 620 of CT600..

The Dividends receivable data entry window now includes a Date box. The date box will only be visible in periods that straddle 6/4/2016. The field will not be visible in periods ending before and beginning on or after this date.

 Software Enhancements

Quality improvements

.The following quality issues have been resolved in Corporation Tax 2017.1.

ITS 55830 – Participators - Repayment transaction on a b/fwd loan results in incorrect s455 relief being calculated

The amount of s455 tax relief calculated on a repayment transaction is calculated using the rate of relief associated with the date of the transaction. The date the original loan was made was not taken into account. This affects loans made in a previous period and repayment entered in a later period. It did not affect scenarios where the loan made and subsequent repayment entered in the same period of account. Therefore the issue did not affect the completion of the form CT600A.

To accommodate this scenario a new checkbox is included on the Participator transaction window. Click ere to see the detailed on how the nw checkbox works.

ITS 56040 – CT600A Online filing error  - Net s455 tax charge incorrect

Where loans made after 6/4/2016 and the value of all loans end in an odd number produces a (0.01) rounding error in the net s455 tax charge which in utrn causes a pre validation failure when attempting to submit the CT600A to HMRC. 

ITS 56075 – Participators - Loans outstanding not always correct
