Revenue have today unveiled the ROS Form CT1 Corporation Tax Return for 2011.
For the first time ever, this year’s CT1 return includes an an optional facility to pre-populate the tax return with data extracted from the company’s CT1 tax return for 2010. This useful feature is included in both the ROS on-line and ROS off-line applications.
Online CT1 filing is now compulsory for most companies from 1 June 2011. Revenue have now also published a downloadable pdf-format paper CT1 return to facilitate the remaining companies who are still permitted to file paper returns.
Thankfully Revenue have now ceased the wasteful practice of mass-producing paper CT1 returns, most of which ended up in recycling bins.
For more, see todays Revenue eBrief on the 2011 CT1 return, and the recent eBrief on mandatory e-filing. Revenue have promised to publish soon a further eBrief on how to use the pre-population facility on the new CT1 tax returns.
