Problem
Iris Business Tax - When generating a CT600 you are getting this error 'Page 1 of CT600 indicates accounts/comp are attached - so you must attach the accounts etc'
Resolution

This warning means Business Tax cannot find the IXBRL html copy from Accounts Production (it can also mean the IXBRL of the computation cant be found) . It is defaulted to always look for a validated IXBRL from AP (unless you tell it not to).

It is set here: Data Entry/ Summary/ Accounts: It should be ticked ‘For return period’ and the PDF format option not ticked. Also Computations should be ticked ‘For return period’.

  1. Help and About. You must be on the latest IRIS version (Do not be on version below 21.2.0).
  2. Data Entry, Summary, make sure the settings are similar to the image show above and click OK to save. Then regenerate the CT600.
  3. If you are already on the latest IRIS version: Data Entry/Summary/check if the settings are correct. If they are then start Accounts Production and load the client, regenerate and validate a IXBRL html again. Start BT and regenerate the CT600.
  4. If options 1) and 2) do not work then start Accounts Production and load client, regenerate and validate a IXBRL html and save it externally on your pc or secure folder. Start BT and regenerate the CT600 and use the ‘External File’ and click the Magnifying glass to find the IXBRL file.
  5. If option 3) does not work then start Accounts Production and load client, regenerate and validate a IXBRL html and save it as PDF externally on your pc or secure folder. Start BT, Data Entry, Summary – Accounts- tick PDF and select PDF option from the pull down list. Regenerate the CT600 and use the ‘External File’ and click the Magnifying glass to find the PDF file.

I don’t have a IXBRL from AP or I have a IXBRL from another source

HMRC are expecting a IXBRL (unless its a valid reason) so you must have the IXBRL ready OR a PDF of the accounts saved. See below if you have the PDF prepared.

I have a PDF copy of the accounts

Data Entry, Summary – Accounts- tick PDF and select PDF option from the pull down list (for example: PDF accounts attached with explanation). Regenerate the CT600 and use the ‘External File’ and click the Magnifying glass to find the PDF file.

Valid reason why you cannot attach a IXBRL or PDF (Liquidated, dormant etc)

Data Entry, Summary – Accounts- tick PDF and select PDF option from the pull down list (Company in liquidation, company dormant, amendment etc). This will stop BT from trying to find a IXBRL or PDF.
