What is Corporation tax?
Corporation tax is a tax on the profits of companies and other organisations.
A corporation tax return (CT600) is submitted based on the profit or loss that a company has made during an accounting period.
We can also advise on loss carry back claims with regards to corporation tax, and also terminal loss relief if you are closing your business.
Your obligations include calculating how much profit your company makes for each accounting period and the amount of corporation tax payable on those profits. This information must be reported to HM Revenue & Customs on a corporation tax return form along with accounts and tax computations to support your return.
Filing your return late can result in strict penalties and tax paid late is subject to interest, so it is essential that you determine your company’s annual accounting date and ensure you meet the deadline.
