Corporation Tax

Corporate tax compliance covers a broad and complex area of tax legislation, which requires competent and knowledgeable advisers in assisting with the evolving requirements.

What is corporate tax compliance?

All trading limited companies are required to file a Corporation Tax Return with HMRC on at least an annual basis. All companies are subject to tax liabilities on their profits at the applicable Corporation Tax rate. This rate periodically changes and may be determined by your business’ profits and it’s therefore important to remain updated on the applicable rate for your accounting period. At Page Kirk, our experienced tax advisors can assist you both in the compliance elements of filing your returns and get to know your business in order to advise you on how best to take advantage of tax reliefs available to you in areas such as capital expenditure.

Most business-related costs your company incurs can be deducted from the company’s taxable profits. However, statutory limitations apply to some expenses which may deny relief – examples may include:

  • Entertainment expenses
  • Expenses not wholly and exclusively for the purposes of trade
  • Capital expenditure
  • Provisions recognised within your accounts
  • Certain vehicle lease expenses
