How to mark Final Accounts and Corporation Tax returns as filed

This article explains the steps you need to take in order to mark your Final Accounts and Corporation Tax return as filed in FreeAgent.

If you have filed your End of Year accounts outside of FreeAgent, you can manually mark your Final Accounts report and Corporation Tax (CT600) return as filed. This will lock the accounts and prevent any changes from being made. You’ll need to have full (level 8) access to FreeAgent to follow the steps below.

Please note that this won’t submit your accounts to Companies House or CT600 to HMRC. To submit your End of Year accounts through FreeAgent, please follow the steps in this article instead.

Finalise your company’s End of Year report

Once you have filed your End of Year accounts outside of FreeAgent and you’re happy that the figures in FreeAgent are correct, you will need to finalise your End of Year report.

To do this, navigate to the ‘Accounting’ tab at the top of the screen and select ‘End of Year’ from the drop-down menu.
