The following Corporation Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley in association with Paul Bowes provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
There are several administrative matters and deadlines to be aware of in connection with diverted profits tax (DPT), which is unsurprising given that DPT is an entirely new tax. The key provisions are listed below.
If a company is potentially within the charge to DPT, it must notify HMRC within three months following the end of the accounting period. This notification period is extended to six months for the first such period (if there is more than one) ending on or before 31 March 2016.

These modifications and the exemptions from notification in practice give rise to judgements to be made by companies as to whether to notify or not, which may not be straightforward.
In practice, it is likely to be the case that those large multinational sector activities that are under close or specialist scrutiny of HMRC may lead to those groups with whom HMRC has
