Business Tax

What is Business Tax?

A tax is a financial charge made by a government on individuals, consumers and businesses. Businesses pay what is called Corporation Tax. Corporation Tax is a tax that all limited companies must pay and it's a tax that's payable against the profits a company makes.

Why is Business Tax Important?

Under the Companies Act 2006, the legal responsibility for correctly calculating corporation tax liability falls on business owners. The increased reporting obligations, investigation policies on the part of the tax authorities and harsher penalties for non-compliance mean that your time and resources can be taken up with tax administration.

Corporation Tax:

Accompanying your annual accounts, Directors have an obligation to file a company tax return, known as a CT600, to calculate and pay their corporation tax.


The current rate of corporation tax is at 19% and is levied on the profits of your business and include gains made through trading, investments or selling assets.


Corporation tax is linked to your company accounts and will require a set of full accounts to accompany any submission, we will always complete your corporation tax filing in conjunction with the production of your annual accounts. This means we will discuss your corporation tax at the same time we produce your accounts.

Reducing your corporation tax is about reducing your taxable profits. This can come in many forms, such as paying yourself an increased salary (albeit this will incur additional income tax), increasing your pension contributions, making further investments into your business or exploring possible reliefs available, such as R&D or possible industry related tax reliefs.
