Hi, I am having a problem with CT600. My company has fixed

Resolved Question:

Hi,
I am having a problem with CT600. My company has fixed assets (freehold property) of £168000 in AC48. Liabilities are £10000 in AC60 so Total assets less liabilities in AC62 and AC68 of £158000.

Under Capital and Reserves, I have Shares in AC70 at £16. Revaluation has never taken place so AC76 is 0.
In order that Total Shareholder Funds AC80 equal AC68, I thus need to declare that P&L Account is £157984. But the actual cumulative P&L since the company was founded is -£1800. So I don't see anywhere under Capital and Reserves to list the fixed assets. The figure of £157984 bears no relationship to true profit, which has always been negative.
We had an accountant do the Companies House Annual Return some time ago, on paper. The corresponding Capital and Reserves section declared:
Called up Share Capital 16
Freehold Purchase Fund 159784
Profit (-Loss) -1800
SHAREHOLDERS' FUNDS 158000

This was accepted, but the CT600 form has nowhere to put the 159784 figure. The accountant is no longer with us.
Any help most gratefully accepted, thank you.

Hello, if you have any questions or need further clarification after reading my answer please let me know.

Thank you for your question..

Please clarify for me -
How was the freehold property funded?

Did the director fund the purchase with own funds or is there is loan in the company's books?

If funded by own funds, is it long term loan?

Many thanks

Hi,


The company was formed to own the freehold of a block of flats. The leaseholders bought out the previous landlord and became shareholders in the company. Each shareholder thus invested around £10000 in it and now has one of 16 £1 shares. I am a director.


Does that clarify things?

Chris, thank you for your prompt reply.

 

Please advise -

 

How have the losses of £1,800 been funded?

 

Each shareholder invested £10,000 making total investment £160,000. As each shareholder has been issued with 1 share of £1 each your issued share capital is £16.

 

Would you regard the balance as a long term loan (freehold purchase fund)to the company to buy the freehold? I would consider it as such.

 

Many thanks

Hi,


The company has a small amount of money in the bank, since the freehold purchase did not use 100% of the amounts 'invested/loaned' by the shareholders. This, plus a little ground rent income has funded the losses, which have been administrative expenses.


Thanks


Chris

Chris, thank you for your reply and additional information.

I would like you to consider a presentation I will post in about an hour's time.

many thanks

OK, thanks a lot. I'll wait for it.

Expert:  taxadvisor.uk replied 1 year ago.
Chris, thank you for your patience.

Based on information given I wish you to consider this presentation.

My rationale behind the figures is -
Original investment of £160,000 (10,000 x16) was used to fund the freehold. Of this only £16 paid for called up share capital and the balance is long term loan by the shareholders/investors. If the figure is less than £159.984 then change it and show the difference within current assets/current liabilities i.e Boxes AC52 to AC58

Your accumulated losses to date are £1,800. Monies raised from ground rent and other sources have funded administration costs.

I am not sure what the bank balance was at year end date. You say there were current liabilities of £10,000 at year end.

At present I have used the accumulated losses to equal creditors - Box AC58



BALANCE SHEET Box No. This year
intangible assets AC42 0
tangible assets AC44 160,000
TOTAL FIXED ASSETS AC48 160,000
stocks AC50 0
debtors AC52 0

TOTAL CURRENT ASSETS AC56 0
creditors due within one year AC58 1,800
NET CURRENT ASSETS AC60 -1,800
TOTAL ASSETS LESS CURRENT LIABILITIES AC62 158,200
creditors due after more than one year AC64 159,984
provision for liabilities AC66 0
TOTAL NET ASSETS AC68 -1,784
CAPITAL AND RESERVES Box No. This year
called up share capital AC70 16
revaluation reserve AC76 0
profit and loss account AC74 -1,800
TOTAL SHAREHOLDERS FUNDS AC80 -1,784

Many thanks, XXXXX XXXXX a problem that, as I told you, we already submitted accounts in a pdf file to Companies House that show:


Tangible assets: £168000


Net current assets (£10000)


Net assets less current liabilities £158000


 


Creditors due more than 1 year: £0


 


CAPITAL AND RESERVES:


Called up share capital £16


Freehold purchase fund £159784


Profit and loss account (£1800)


 


SHAREHOLDERS' FUNDS £158000


 


So, given that Companies House has this document, don't I need the CT declaration to HMRC to be compatible with it? Or should I change and resubmit the accounts to CH?


 


Thanks


Chris


 

Expert:  taxadvisor.uk replied 1 year ago.

Chris, thank you for your reply.

 

You should use the aforementioned figures (in my last answer - amended figures) for your CT600 return.

 

At the same time, you should write to Companies House and file amended accounts. I have done that for clients in the past.

 

I hope this is helpful and answers your question and that there are no more issues.
