Business Tax

All companies, partnerships and sole traders incorporated in the UK (and those overseas with a taxable presence on these shores) are subject to business tax.

The headline rates of corporation tax have decreased over the last few years, with the latest reduction (20% to 19%) effective from 1st April 2017. In addition to this, a further reduction to 17% will come into force from 1 April 2020.

Under the UK tax system, a company’s profit before tax in its statutory accounts is subject to various adjustments, which are then taxed at a relevant rate.

UNW’s tax team will proactively guide clients through this legislation to minimise their corporation tax bills, in accordance with the relevant legislation. Please click here for more information regarding our tax services.

Speaking at our next charity group briefing is Dave Carter, special adviser to the UK’s Fraud Advisory Panel, who will discuss emerging threats to the sector and the red flags to look out for. Find out more about this event at the link below: ow.ly/5Aid30mE1E2 pic.twitter.com/n49eCWUqnH

Congratulations to all those listed in the North East's Top 200 companies for 2018. Great to see so many UNW clients make the list this year. (We're confident we're already acting for a number of future entrants too!) chroniclelive.co.uk/business/busin… pic.twitter.com/9qx7A7MJTt
