Corporation tax applies to all UK companies and you must file your corporation tax return on time.
Our corporation tax services can help you with this legal requirement, streamlining the process from end to end.
A corporation tax return, also known as a CT600, is your company’s annual tax return. It shows your company’s taxable profit. Your company is liable to pay corporation tax on this profit. This figure consists of your company’s income minus expenses and any tax allowances.
As of March 2022, the current corporation tax rate is 19%, which generally applies to all companies, regardless of size.
From April 2023, the rate of corporation tax which is paid on company profits is expected to increase from 19% to 25%. As a caveat of this increase, a small profits rate of 19% will apply to companies whose profits are equal to or less than £50,000.
Once we’ve completed your corporation tax return, we’ll let you know how much corporation tax you must pay. You need to pay this sum within nine months and one day of your company’s year-end.
For example, if your company’s financial year-end is January 31, you would have to pay your corporation tax bill by November 1.
