Bundle 'Contents'

Last modified


The Contents tab is used to set up the contents for a given Tax Return Bundle and is accessed via Maintenance > Tax settings > Tax Return Bundle > Bundle details.

Interaction with Layout and Formatting Window

The values of the following check boxes are initially set on the values with the Layout and formatting window:

  • Return declaration.
  • Duplicate signature page.
  • Include copy declaration text on front page of form.

The first two options can be amended on the Contents tab provided the corresponding options have not been suppressed in the Layout and formatting window.

The Layout and Formatting window is accessed via Maintenance > Tax settings > Layout and formatting.

Setting up a Bundle

The Contents tab appears as follows:

  1. Select the Bundle name from the drop down in the Bundle section. 
  2. Select the Type (SA100 or R40) from the Type drop down in the Tax return section.  The drop down defaults to SA100.  If the Type is changed to R40 then the Print IR mark check box is greyed out and disabled (as R40 Tax Returns cannot be filed online).;
  3. By default the Include check boxes for the following sections are ticked:
    • Tax return contents.
    • Computations.
    • Backing Schedules.
  4. By default the Order drop down is set as in the image above.
  5. The Include check box for the CGT schedule of realised gains will only be available if CCH CGT and Dividend Scheduling is licensed and installed in the same folder as Central / Personal Tax.
  6. If the Include check box is ticked for a given section then that section will be selected for inclusion in the bundle and the remaining controls in that section will be editable.  The Order number will default to None and you should select the appropriate Order number.

Currently there are three new mail merge fields that relate specifically to the Tax Return Bundle:

  • CPGIssueDate
  • CPGLetterParagraphs
  • CPGLetterParagraphs1

These can be included in the letter template:

The mail merge field CPGLetterParagraphs1 is designed to be used for paragraphs that are to appear in an Appendix.  In this situation you would include a Page Break in the template and add the mail merge field on the new page.

Saving Changes

When you choose to save the changes, e.g. by clicking on the Save menu item in the Task Bar, then a message will appear:

Do you want to update all associated Tax Return bundles.png

Select Yes to push the changes down to all the associated client Tax Return Bundles.  If you select No then the template will be updated but not the associated bundles.

If any client is open for a Tax Year that is linked to this bundle then it will not be possible to update that Tax Return Bundle and the following message box will appear:

Not all templates were updated.png

Press OK to close the message.
