After multiple policy U-turns and much uncertainty, the main rate of corporation tax will rise from 19% to 25% from 1 April 2023, affecting companies with profits of £250,000 and over.
The legislation provides that small companies with profits up to £50,000 will continue to pay corporation tax at 19%, with profits between the two limits being subject to a tapered rate.
All UK companies must pay corporation tax on the profits they generate, while the profits of non-incorporated businesses, such as sole traders and partnerships, are taxed via self-assessment.
