With the winding up of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) or furlough, at the end of September, it is vitally important that all employers are up to date with their Corporation Tax Form CT600, particularly over grants received from the scheme.
HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is looking to close any loopholes and ‘claw back’ any overpayments, such as claims for an employee who left the business while the scheme was in operation.
HMRC amended their CT600 guidance at the start of September to clarify how these entries should be presented, so businesses should seek immediate guidance from their accountants.
From April 2021, companies were required to disclose details of their CJRS claims and make a formal declaration in relation to the CJRS income received as part of its CT600 return.
As with the rest of the Corporation Tax CT600 Return, the director signing off the CT600 return must ensure that the information is correct and reported in the format that HMRC require.
The company should provide accurate information on the following for the CT600 return:
CJRS payments received in the period
The CJRS payment that the company was entitled to
CJRS overpayments already disclosed or repaid, including:
If an overpayment is due to be repaid to HMRC, this will be added to the company’s Corporation Tax liability reported on the CT600 return.
There are also new requirements in relation to the ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ Scheme.
