Business Taxes

The principle is simple – all businesses pay tax on their profit! The first step in the process is always to prepare a set of reliable accounts.

Sole Traders pay Income Tax (and National Insurance) on the profit made. The taxable profit for self-employed people is shown on their personal tax return.

Partners in a partnership pay Income Tax (and National Insurance) on their share of the profit made by the partnership. Each partner will need a tax return and the partnership has a return to submit as well.

Companies pay Corporation Tax on the profit made. Limited companies file corporation tax returns and then the Directors will also have their own tax situation to deal with.

To make sure the set-up is best for you, think about the tax implications and this may help you decide which business type is best for you.
