At Taxfile we can compile and file your company’s tax return as well as calculating what is owed in Corporation Tax.
As of 01/04/2023, the main rate of Corporation Tax (CT) will rise from 19% to 25%, although the rate will remain at 19% for small businesses with profits less than £50,000.00. However, if the profit is anywhere between £50,000.00 to £250,000.00 then the calculation is slightly more complicated as there is a marginal relief that can be applied. Anything above £250,000.00 is taxed at the new rate of 25%.
The marginal relief means that you would not pay an outright 25% on a profit between £50k-£250k. So for example, your company posts a profit of £80,000.00.
At 25% the tax would be £20k.
To calculate the marginal relief you would subtract your profit from the maximum where the relief is allowed (£250k) leaving you £170k and apply the marginal rate multiplier (3/200 or 0.015) to this, which is £2,550.00 in relief.
So the £20k would be reduced by £2,550, meaning that the CT liability would be £17,450 on the £80k profit.
When we file your tax return we calculate:
- profit or loss for Corporation Tax (this is different from the profit or loss shown in your annual accounts)
- Corporation Tax liability
Taxable profits for Corporation Tax include the money your company or association makes from:
- doing business (‘trading profits’)
- selling assets for more than they cost (‘chargeable gains’)
