IR10 accounts information form included
First year Partnership commenced trading
Partnership has ceased Trading

 

 

About the IR10

An IR10 is only required to be completed if you are in business. In business means any profession, trade, manufacture or undertaking carried on for profit.

Generally you may need to complete this form if you:

  • are self-employed
  • receive other income
  • are claiming expenses against income
The IR10
  • collects information for statistical purposes
  • does not replace financial statements and should not be used to calculate business income
  • provides only a general summary of information

If you complete an IR10 you do not need to send in your financial accounts as well.
Record keeping
We require the information you enter on the IR10 for tax purposes, not for general accounting. This means that you do not include non-deductible expenditure or exempt income.

You must keep:

  • books of account to record income, expenses, payments, wages, and assets and liabilities
  • bank statements, invoices, receipts, and any other documents to support entries in your books of account

You must keep your records for seven years. Keep all receipts and invoices with your records in case we ask to see them later.

If you want to complete an IR10 please select this question. If you are unsure whether you have to provide an IR10 please call us on 0800 377 774

Please select any of the following that applied to the Partnership during the period 1 April 2007 to 31 March 2008.



Income
Help Help
The partnership received no income from all sources (Nil return)

Every partnership must file an income tax return, whether or not it has been active. If there is no gross income to declare, or losses to claim or carry forward, or disclosures to make at Question 23 you can file a "0.00" return. You do not need to complete any further questions but remember to print and sign the declaration for your records.

If the expenses have not been claimed elsewhere in the return, print the amount claimed in Box 20.

Disclosures

Disclosures

If at any time during the 2008 income year the partnership held rights such as shares, units or an entitlement to benefit in any foreign: company, unit trust, superannuation scheme or life insurance policy, a disclosure form for interests in a foreign company or for foreign investment funds may have to be completed as follows.

  • If the partnership held the rights but did not receive income, the partnership completes the appropriate form with the IR7.
  • When income is attributed to individual partners they complete their own separate disclosures and attach them to their individual tax returns. In this case partnership disclosure is not required.

If you need any of these forms, call us on 0800 377 774.
