The WEB Companies Open versions works as a simulator to prepare form 200 tax returns for financial year 2018 without having to identify with an electronic certificate, so it can be used for the necessary tests and checks prior to filing.
Access to WEB Companies Open is available on the form 200 procedures page at the e-Office, in the “Help services” section, “Previous years”.
From the first window in the Open version you can:
Register a new tax return, indicating the NIF and full name or company name of the taxpayer and clicking “Accept”.
Import a file in BOE format to form 200 for 2018 by simply clicking “Import”.Select the file that adapts to the updated registry design for form 200, financial year 2018.A notice will appear if the file is successfully imported.
Load a .ses file that you previously saved locally from the Open version for 2018.Note that the version for filing also saves the tax return but on the Tax Agency servers so you won't be able to recover in the Open version.Click "Upload" and select the SES file you saved earlier.
If a new tax return is generated, first you must fill in the "Tax return characters” page which determines how to fill in the rest of form 200 and which, once accepted, cannot be modified.Check the appropriate boxes and indicate the start and end dates of the tax period of the reporting Entity.Scroll down to the bottom of the page to click “Apply”.
Then, the boxes for the account status will be checked in a new window.
Before going to the tax return, a new window allows you to import an XML file to incorporate financial data.Click on the "Choose (XML) file" button to select your file or "Continue without importing accounting data" to continue filling in the tax return.
Once all the pages of the tax return are opened, the Open version of WEB Companies has a toolbar at the top with the following features:
The "Sections” button displays the various sections of the tax return for each access.
"Preliminary tax return” generates a draft in PDF not valid for filing.
"Validate tax return” checks that the tax return has been filled in, showing any notices, warnings and errors detected to correct them if necessary.A button is enabled to go to the error, warning or notice to correct it.Remember, only errors would prevent you filing the tax return.
"Delete tax return", using the button with the trash can icon.
"Save” generates a .ses file that is saved locally with the tax return filled in so far.This .ses file can only be retrieved in the WEB Companies Open version by using the "Load" button in the first identification window.By default, the file name will be NIF-200-2018 and extension .ses.
"Export” generates a .200 file adapted to the form’s registry design.The tax return must contain no errors as, otherwise, it cannot be exported (nothing will happen when you click the export button).The .200 file can be imported into WEB Companies with electronic certificate identification to complete filing from here.By default, the file name will be NIF-200-2018-0A and extension .200.
