Corporation Tax Support

Corporation Tax

Often one of the most financially burdensome taxes for businesses, corporation tax arrears are extremely common in companies across all sectors. Due once a year at a current rate of 19%, the amount payable is determined by the company’s profits over its financial year. Any investments the company holds will also be subject to corporation tax, as will any chargeable gains, i.e. selling assets for more than they originally cost.

Those with profits in excess of £1.5m pay corporation tax in instalments, however, for those businesses earning less than this, the entire amount due must be paid in one lump sum within nine months of the company’s financial year end.

More about Corporation Tax

Where a lot of businesses come unstuck is that it is, unlike income tax, corporation tax is not deducted at source. Instead directors need to plan ahead and ensure they have sufficient reserves set aside to cover this amount when it falls due. Unfortunately in some cases this does not happen. Sometimes this is because money is simply not adequately being saved throughout the year.

However, in other instances directors find themselves dipping into money set aside to cover the tax bill when cash flow becomes tight, often with genuine intentions of repaying this back into the pot before the tax deadline. If this money is not sufficiently replenished in time, the company is at risk of defaulting when the payment becomes due.
