Corporation tax

Corporation tax is a mandatory levy on your business profits. It’s a significant financial consideration, requiring compliance and effective tax planning, as it can impact the bottom line and overall profitability of your business.

When is Corporation Tax payable?

A corporation tax return must be submitted to HMRC within 12 months of your company's year-end. Even if your business has made a loss, and there is no corporation tax to be paid, you are still required to make the filing. It is worth noting that even though the corporation tax return, also known as CT600, doesn’t need to be filed until 12 months after the year-end, the actual payment to HMRC must be made within nine months after the end of your financial year. Failing to file the return will result in penalties and late payment normally attracts interest charges.

How is corporation tax calculated?

The amount of corporation tax payable is calculated based on the profit the business has made during the accounting period as per your annual accounts, after making necessary accounting year -end adjustments and deducting allowable reliefs and allowances. Businesses can also carry forward losses from previous years to offset against future profits.
