Corporation Tax

Corporation Tax is a tax on the taxable profits of limited companies and other organisations including clubs, societies, associations and other unincorporated bodies.

If your company or organisation is based in the UK, you'll have to pay Corporation Tax on all your taxable profits – wherever in the world those profits come from.

Unlike other taxes such as Income Tax or VAT – where in most cases the filing and payment deadlines are identical – this is not the case with Corporation Tax. The deadline to pay your Corporation Tax is before the deadline to file your Company Tax Return.
