Corporation Tax Services

In the UK, it is imperative that business owners meet their tax obligations as this helps to ensure HMRC compliance and contributes to the overall functioning of the economy. Nevertheless, challenges such as time constraints and lack of knowledge can often hinder the effective management of these responsibilities.

Failing to pay the correct amount of tax can lead to severe consequences, including financial and legal penalties. Fortunately, professional corporate tax services can offer a proactive solution, helping businesses navigate complex tax regulations and avoid potential pitfalls. 

At N-Accounting, we specialise in corporate taxation, offering business owners professional guidance and comprehensive corporate tax preparation services. Our dedicated and hardworking team is equipped with the expertise to navigate the complexities of the UK’s tax regulations, ensuring accuracy and compliance for your business. With N-Accounting, you can streamline your tax processes and maximise financial efficiency.

Understanding Corporation Tax

Corporation tax is imposed on the profits generated by a limited company, and it extends to gains from the sale of shares, property or land. Currently, the prevailing rate of corporation tax is 19% for companies with profits under £50K, increasing to 25% for those exceeding £250K. Entities falling within the profit range of these two thresholds may qualify for marginal relief.

It is important to note that sole traders, the self-employed and partners are not subject to corporation tax. Instead, they are covered by income tax bands based on their earnings.

How Corporation Tax Works

It is strongly recommended that your business takes advantage of corporate tax services if it generates profits as: 

  • A limited company

  • A foreign company with an office or branch in the UK

  • A club, co-operative or other unincorporated association (e.g. sports clubs and community groups) 

The responsibility for paying corporation tax to HMRC lies with company directors, and the deadline hinges on the level of taxable profits. For profits up to £1.5 million, payment is due nine months and one day after the company’s accounting period ends.

If taxable profits exceed £1.5 million, payment by instalment can be arranged, subject to specific rules based on profit levels. It is important to note that the corporation tax deadline precedes the deadline for filing the company tax return, which is 12 months after the accounting period concludes. 

Many UK companies register for corporation tax and PAYE concurrently with their Companies House registration. If this is not the case, registration should occur within three months of the limited company being established. Once registered, businesses can access HMRC’s online services to file the company tax return and make the necessary payments. 

Neglecting corporation tax payments and other obligations relating to HMRC can lead to significant financial penalties and possibly to an increase in the outstanding amount. Penalties come into force immediately after the payment deadline has been missed. Persistent delays may trigger further actions, such as distraint, the issuance of a statutory demand or even a winding-up petition. 

In instances where paying a corporation tax bill is challenging or delayed, proactive communication with HMRC is crucial. Early contact and transparency about the situation can open up more options and reduce the likelihood of penalties or legal action.
