Do HMRC offer options?

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) do offer Time to Pay arrangements. This allows businesses to spread the cost of their tax bill over a longer period, typically up to 12 months.

Interest and penalties may still apply, and your business will need to demonstrate that they are experiencing financial difficulties, being unable to pay your tax bill in full by the due date. HMRC can issue liquidations and winding-up orders if your tax bill becomes significantly overdue, so it is prudent to plan ahead and pay on time. If you file your tax return late, you may be subject to penalties and interest charges. Find out about HMRC late payment charges.

What is Corporation Tax?

Corporation tax is levied on the profits earned by companies and organizations that are registered in the United Kingdom. The tax applies to both UK-resident companies and non-UK resident companies that have a permanent establishment in the UK.

From 1st April 2023 the corporation tax rate increases from 19% to 25% for businesses with larger turnovers. This rate is subject to change, as it is set by the government and can be adjusted in the annual budget. Find out more about the UK’s Corporation Tax structure.


When is my Corporation Tax bill due?

Your corporation tax bill is due 9 months and 1 day after the end of your accounting period. As firms typically end their financial year at the end of March, June, September or December, corporation tax bills are due to be paid by 1st Jan, 1st April, 1st July or 1st October respectively.

For example, if your company’s accounting period ends on 31 December, your corporation tax bill for that period will be due on 1 October of the following year (i.e. 9 months and 1 day after the end of the accounting period).

It’s a good idea to plan ahead and ensure that you have the funds available to pay your corporation tax bill on time. If you feel you may have a shortfall or would prefer to spread the cost of the bill rather than take a lump sum from your cash reserves then finance If you are unable to pay your tax bill on time, you should contact HMRC as soon as possible to discuss your options.
