Partnership Tax Returns

If you are part of a partnership, you’ll need a partnership tax return completing. Page Kirk can make sure your documentations complies with HMRC to give you peace of mind.

What do I need to know?

Crucially, two tax returns are required by partners in a partnership, these are:

Partnership tax return

All partners are jointly responsible for the partnership tax return. The partnership profit/loss is allocated between the partners on the return according to their entitlement.

Individual tax return

Also known as a self-assessment tax return, each partner is responsible for his or her own individual self-assessment tax return.

What are partnership tax returns?

A partnership is a business which is owned and managed by at least two partners. The partners are responsible for all aspects of the business, including tax compliance requirements. New partnerships must register with HMRC, and each new partner in a partnership must also register. There are penalties for not doing this in a timely manner. Page Kirk can take care of this for you.

Each partner is assessed to income tax and national insurance contributions based on their share of the partnership profit that falls within their own ‘basis period’. It can be complicated to calculate the assessable profit, particularly in the opening and closing years of the partnership or when joining or leaving a partnership. Page Kirk can prepare these calculations.

The late submission of a partnership tax return or other examples of non-compliance also extend to the individual partners. Each partner will receive a late filing penalty if the partnership tax return is submitted to HMRC late, even if their own individual self-assessment tax returns are filed on time. We will help to ensure that you do not fall foul of any penalties from non-compliance with HMRC; that your tax affairs are up to date; and that you always remain tax compliant.
