The main corporation tax rates in force for companies at present are:
|Passive income - Rental Income, Investment Income, etc.||25%|
|Capital Gains on most assets||25%|
Tax efficiencies can often be achieved through
- Maximising profits liable at the lower 12.5% corporation tax rate
- Advising on potential risk areas where other corporation tax rates may apply
- Ensuring that all tax deductible items, including capital allowances and interest paid, are accounted for correctly
- Prepare your company's Corporation Tax Return
- Advise on Preliminary Corporation Tax
- Prepare your Directors' Income Tax Returns
In addition all companies are obliged to pay Preliminary Tax on profits (Tax on account for the current period). You should always consult your Tax Advisor in good time.
