Still moving towards those returns

OK I've now got my supper secret activation PIN from HMRC and had a go at doing my corporate tax return on line. All was well right up to the end where they want accounts added. Now I've done company accounts until 31 Jan 06 ( as required by Companies House), but this arm of the government wants accounts up to 11Jan06 - ie different accounts.

This is not a problem this year as my accounts are so simple - but hopefully next year when I've actually started selling something it will be a little more difficult.

Have asked those nice people at HMRC if I can do another return from 12Jan06 to 31Jan06 to bring both periods into line - tell you how it goes. But I have to do a return very shortly or else we're in fine territory here.....

See Cathy's take on all this - I'd attach the cartoon directly, but there's no doubt copyright reasons why I shouldn't ...
