What is a CT41g Form?

The CT41G form is a document issued by the tax and customs authorities to all newly registered companies. The purpose of the document is for administrators to provide details about themselves and their business so that tax authorities have some basic information about the established entity.


If your club, association, or other similar organization starts business as a limited liability company, please use the CT41G (club) form to notify HMRC. HMRC will know when your organization should pay corporation tax




When Should I Return My CT41g?

You must respond to HMRC with the information they have requested on Form CT41 (G) within three months of starting your business. CT41 (G) still needs to be completed if your company is down to notify HMRC that you do not intend to take action. It is also a good idea to keep a copy of CT41 (G) as a record of your UTR number, as this will be very important to your business (see below).


What Is My UTR?

UTR stands for Single Tax Reference. This code is unique to your company and will be used as a reference whenever you contact HMRC. This company stores all the tax information of your company. It must be securely stored and must be accessible to you and your accountant or agent. As a business owner, you also have your own UTR related to your personal tax information. You will need it to complete your tax return.


When Should I Send My CT41g Form to HMRC?

You must submit the form to HMRC within three months, even if the company does not conduct business or commerce.


Likewise, if you have an inactive business that becomes active and starts trading, notify HMRC within three months using the CT41G form.


Does CT41g Represent a Corporate Tax Return?

No, the CT41G form will tell HMRC when you owe the corporation tax. You still have to file your tax return online.




How to Complete Your CT41(G)


HMRC prefers that you create an account on the government portal and fill in all your details online. Instructions for this are included in the CT41 module. Although it is easier to provide this information online, you can also write to HMRC if you prefer.


One of the questions HMRC will ask you is whether you want to appoint a representative to handle tax matters for you; He will usually be your accountant. If you hire an agent, they can speak to HMRC on your behalf about your corporation tax issues and produce invoices and returns. You will also receive a copy of any publication sent to you by HMRC. If you are unsure about handling HMRC yourself, hiring an agent is a good idea.


If you do not already have an HMRC Managing Agent on your behalf, our Pinnacle Accounting Partners can be appointed to act as your agent. Ask your sales advisor.
