Corporation tax


All limited companies registered in the UK with Companies House are required to pay corporation tax on their profits. Corporation tax is likely to be a major part of your trading costs, and as with all taxes there are deadlines for submission of the tax returns and payment of tax owed.

The whole process is time and resource intensive, and with corporation tax rates and reliefs changing on an annual basis, it requires detailed knowledge and understanding of this area of business taxation.

However, with the help of a specialist corporate tax accountant, the responsibility becomes much more manageable. Our corporate tax accountants can support you with the preparation of company accounts, tax computations and company tax returns. And taking this information into account, we can also advise on any areas of tax planning that may be beneficial to your business’s financial future. 

Our business tax specialists maintain a constant awareness and understanding of the changing rules and regulations and we will act as intermediaries for any disputes with the tax authorities. By working with us, we deal with the increased reporting obligations and investigation policies delivered by HMRC.

    All UK based companies that are registered with Companies House, are required to file an annual corporation tax return to HMRC and to calculate how much corporation tax they owe.

    The corporation tax return is calculated, according to the profit or loss shown in your statutory accounts. Additionally, there are a number of reliefs, allowances and expenses which a company may be eligible to claim. The findings from these calculations are then used to determine how much corporation tax is owed, and the completed return is submitted to HMRC.

    Corporation tax returns are generally filed 12 months following the end of the accounting period for as business. This accounting period is determined by HMRC, who will also inform you of the deadline.
    It is important that all calculations are included in your tax return and that the right information is reported to HMRC.
