Ftax iXBRL

XBRL is the international standard for computer readable accountancy data. iXBRL is the HMRC standard to allow this data to be viewed in a browser. All CT600 submissions must now include both iXBRL Accounts and iXBRL Computations. Ftax is recognised by HMRC to both produce iXBRL Computations, and to submit CT600s online with iXBRL Computations and iXBRL Accounts attached.

The Ftax CT600 now includes an iXBRL button on the opening page. This will return an email with the iXBRL Computations attached. The iXBRL Accounts, produced by any HMRC recognised iXBRL Accounts generating software, may be attached to the CT600 along the Ftax iXBRL Computations. You will then be ready to submit the CT600 online to HMRC. Ftax does not produce the iXBRL Accounts files itself.
