Corporation Tax increases from April 2023

Industry News - 20th December 2022

As reported in the Autumn Statement delivered by the Chancellor on 17 November, the main rate of Corporation Tax will increase to 25% from 1 April 2023 for companies with profits over £250,000.

A Small Profits Rate (SPR) of 19% will also be introduced from the same date for companies with profits of up to £50,000, ensuring these companies pay Corporation Tax at the same rate as currently.

Where a company has profits between £50,000 and £250,000, a marginal rate of Corporation Tax will apply that bridges the gap between the lower and upper limits. The lower and upper limits will be proportionately reduced for short accounting periods of less than 12 months and where there are associated companies.

The effect of marginal relief is that the effective rate of Corporation Tax gradually increases from 19% where profits exceed £50,000 to 25% where profits are more than £250,000.

For some businesses, it may be prudent to reconsider associated company relationships before April 2023 to avoid partial loss of the lower 19% rate or marginal taper relief.
