Corporation Tax Part 3 - Company Tax Compliance

Part 3 of the Quorum Corporation Tax introduction series covers the chief detailed areas of company tax compliance regime in the UK.  The course aims to provide the delegate with a thorough review of the UK’s administration and compliance system for company taxation.  It concentrates in particular on the systems and procedures a company should have in place to deal with the compliance aspects of its CT return filing and tax payment obligations vis-à-vis HMRC and will look in detail at the current CT HMRC compliance checks regime.

Learning Objectives


This course is designed to follow on from the Corporation Tax – Parts 1 & 2 and topics covered in these will be assumed as prior knowledge. However, the course is also suitable for delegates with previous corporate tax experience, who are now starting to deal with the submission and agreement of computations under CT self-assessment.


The course assumes attendance on Parts 1 and 2 although that is not essential for someone looking for a refresher on these aspects of Corporation Tax.
