Corporation Tax Returns in Horsham
Corporation Tax is payable on the taxable profits of limited companies and other organisations. These include trading profits and investment profits, as well as capital gains.
Company directors have a responsibility to calculate their corporation tax liability, submit a Company Tax Return (CTSA Return) with HM Revenue & Customs, and pay the right amount of tax electronically. Furthermore, this must be completed in line with a series of deadlines.
The CTSA Return can impose significant administrative burdens on businesses. Giltinian and Kennedy can alleviate the strain by completing your Return on your behalf.
There are two rates of corporation tax, as follows:
- The lower 'small profits' rate
- The upper 'full' or 'main' rate
If your business's profits fall between certain limits, it may be possible to reduce the corporation tax due through the use of Marginal Relief. The corporation tax rates and allowances are unveiled in the Chancellor's annual Budget. For details of the latest rates please contact a member of the team.
For corporation tax purposes, the financial year runs from 1 April to 31 March. If your business accounting period spans two corporation tax financial years, the company's taxable profits may need to be apportioned between the two years.
In contrast to other taxes, the deadline for paying corporation tax actually comes before the deadline for filing the company tax return. In some cases, payment of corporation tax is due in four quarterly instalment payments.
