HTML require an iXBRL set of computations and either a pdf or iXBRL version of the accounts. If these are not included, you must include the reason why from one of the reasons in the drop‐down box.

You can either use the box in the ‘Select File Here’ row, or if you have been sent any files by Easyfiler or viewed any using the viewer they will be in the download box where is says ‘or from store’. Select and press the appropriate Upload Form button.

The system will know whether an iXBRL file is Accounts or Computations. Otherwise it will assume the file is a pdf. If using a pdf, choose what type it is from the appropriate drop‐down box before you press the Upload Form button. Please avoid using ‘.’s in filenames.

Uploading computations will update the return accordingly, with company name, dates and various figures. Updating accounts will update company registration and turnover.

On my site, passwords are not required to have symbols and are not case sensitive because these characters are easy for machines to deal with but not humans. We are not machines! But we do need secure passwords, so a ten to fifteen digit code is required. I strongly recommend that you use the initials of a phrase to help you remember this rather than using a word. - Brian
