The following article is based on the corporation tax changes that are planned to take effect from 1 April 2023. However, with the current changes occurring within the British government, it is highly possible that Liz Truss’s government may decide to scrap these changes entirely. Currently the plans for corporation tax changes are as follows.
The increase in corporation tax in 2023 will see the return of the small profit rate and main corporation tax rate.
Once the increase takes effect from 1 April 2023, the corporation tax rates will be:
- 19% for businesses with £50,000 or less
- 25% for those with profits over £250,000
- a marginal rate between £50,000 and £250,000
Companies with taxable profits between £50,000 and £250,000 will pay tax at the 25% rate reduced by a marginal relief such that overall, they will pay on a sliding scale between 19% and 25%.
