Enter at Number of 51% group companies (including self) the total number of companies with which the company is associated. You should include the company itself.
This information is used to populate box 625 of the company tax return CT600.
For accounting periods ending on or after 1 April 2019 HMRC have updated their guidance for the completion of box 625 Number of 51% group companies on the CT600. The value entered in Number of 51% group companies (including self) will now populate box 625 as opposed to being reduced by 1, which was previously the case.
Companies are associated if either one company controls the other or both companies are under common control.
If the company has received UK dividend income from companies which are not part of the same 51% group, then enter at Non-group UK dividends received the amount of dividend income received. Do not include notional tax attributable to the dividends. The information entered here will help to populate boxes 38 and 39 on the company tax return CT600 (2008) or boxes 620 and 625 on the company tax return CT600 (2015).
Select Company should have made instalment payments in the period if instalment payments were, or should have been, made. This will populate box 95 on page 5 of the company tax return CT600 (2008) or box 630 on the company tax return CT600 (2015).
Select this option if the company is a partner in a firm.
This information is used in the tagging process, but does not affect any entries on the company tax return.
