Do I have to pay Corporation Tax?

You must pay Corporation Tax on your profits if you:

  • are trading as a limited company
  • have a foreign company with a UK branch or office
  • carry out a trade as a club, co-operative or another unincorporated association with a view to profit

There are a number of steps you must take in order to declare and pay your Corporation Tax, including:

  • Register for Corporation Tax as soon as you start trading. This applies to dormant companies when they begin trading and newly incorporated companies.
  • Calculate how much Corporation Tax you are liable to pay by completing a tax return.
  • Pay your Corporation Tax

File your Corporation Tax return (CT600) with HMRC.

A note to remember is that the deadline to file your Corporation Tax return is 12 months after your financial year end. However, the Corporation Tax liability must be paid within 9 months and 1 day of your company’s financial year end.

At Shaw Gibbs, we have a specialist tax team that deal with all aspects of the Corporation Tax process, including; compliance with all deadlines and advice on tax mitigation, to ensure our clients are paying the correct amount of tax on time.
