Companies, like individuals are subject to tax. The rules relating to taxation are sophisticated, extensive and complex. The rules are enshrined in statute and case law. In the U.K. it is administered by H.M. Revenue & Customs.

Government revenues from taxation in the U.K. have been rising consistently in recent times and the scope of tax inspectors to investigate returns is also increasing. It is therefore important that this often significant cost to business is understood and budgeted for correctly.

Companies and individuals are subject to various taxes on different sources of income. The main taxes include:

  • Income tax
  • Corporation tax
  • National Insurance Contributions
  • Capital Gains tax
  • Inheritance tax
  • Stamp Duty

The rules applied to Companies differ to those applied to individuals.

The liability to tax is determined by rules relating to residency, ordinary residency and domicile.

HMR&C have extensive powers to penalize non compliance or late submission of tax returns in the form penalties, fines and interest charges.
