Aimed at tax managers in industry or those working as advisers or compliance officers in practice, Part 3 of the Quorum Corporation Tax Introduction series covers the main 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.

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


The self-assessment obligation

  • Corporation Tax Payment and Return filing obligations
  • The CT instalments payment regime
  • Group payment arrangements
  • Interest and penalty provisions
  • The HMRC Compliance Checks regime
  • HMRC procedures, what they can and cannot ask
  • Information powers and company rights and responsibilities
  • Appeals and Tribunal procedures
  • Recent case law developments on compliance issues

Specific problem areas and potential compliance problems

  • Transfer Pricing
  • Anti-avoidance legislation
  • Reorganisations and mergers-demergers
  • Statutory and Non-Statutory Clearance procedures
  • Investment companies
  • Companies in liquidation
  • Recent developments and changes to the CT compliance checks regime

Press Releases, Statements of Practice and case law developments in these areas will also be covered where relevant and any recent developments in relevant CT planning will be included.


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. Tax managers in industry dealing with day to day compliance issues and those working in practice advising their corporate clients about their compliance obligations will find the course of particular benefit.
