Do dormant companies still need to file Company Tax Returns?



I’ve got a boring (but necessary) filing question about companies. When a company is dormant, does it need to file a company tax return still? I appreciate your help.

No, a dormant company does not have to file Company Tax Returns if it has been dormant since incorporation or for the entire duration of its accounting period - there would be nothing to report.

A dormant company would only have to file a Company Tax Return if it was previously trading before it became dormant - the director would have to complete and tax return and pay Corporation Tax for that period.
