What is corporate tax?
Corporate tax is paid by all businesses in the UK and is calculated based on their yearly profits in the same manner as income tax would be charged.
Companies do not receive tax-free allowances and businesses are required to submit an annual company tax return to HMRC.
What types of corporate tax advice do you give?
We provide corporate tax advice for companies and shareholders on a number of different areas:
Assessing tax planning strategy
Tax can be a large burden for businesses, particularly small businesses and this is why tax planning is so important, as companies must take into consideration all tax costs, as well as any compliance fees or potential penalties.
We can ease the burden by offering specialist advice on how to minimise tax liabilities and set in place the most tax-efficient strategy.

Capital Gains Tax Advice
Capital Gains Tax can occur when disposing of capital assets such as shares and businesses. It applies to the profits made upon selling an asset.
We can advise on eligible deductions and reliefs that may be applicable to you and how you may be able to pay a lower rate of CGT.

Exit strategies for shareholders
If a shareholder of the business is only seeking a short term investment opportunity then it is important to have in place agreements and documentation regarding official exit strategy to avoid any future disputes.
We can advise on shareholder agreements and strategies that safeguard the interests of your business.

Transferring ownership of shares advice
Many businesses will be passed on to the next generation once a business owner retires and disputes can arise should an owner not wish to relinquish control before this date.
We can advise on the best approach to passing on shares in the most agreeable and tax-efficient method.

Corporate tax FAQs
What is PAYE
PAYE stands for ‘pay as you earn’ and refers to the income tax that is deducted from your salary.
How does PAYE work when you’re self-employed?
Self-employed individuals will usually fill out self-assessment tax return forms once a year and make payments to HMRC in January and July.
There are some instances where you can pay tax through PAYE and it is done automatically.
When do you have to register for VAT?
Your business needs to register for VAT with HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) if ‘taxable supplies’ exceed the VAT registration threshold.
This applies to all commercial businesses.
When is corporation tax due?
Corporation tax is payable nine months after the company’s accounting period ends.
