How to Reduce Your Corporation Tax Bill
If you are spending money (and let’s face it, every business needs to spend money in order to make money), you need to ensure that you are claiming all applicable tax relief in a timely manner. The current 2022/23 tax year, which began 6th April 2022, will end on 5th April 2023. The following day, 6th April 2023, will see the start of the 2023/24 tax year, so now is the perfect time to make capital investments in software, equipment, plant and machinery, and anything else that will optimise your business.
Invest in business-critical resources now
Capital allowances can be claimed on a wide variety of purchases, such as equipment, machinery and business vehicles. As well as helping to make your next corporation tax bill as low as possible, this also drives improvement and innovation within your business by taking the time to analyse what you need to deliver the very best service and empower your teams.
Ask us about R&D tax relief
If your business carries out any kind of research and development, even if it doesn’t reach the desired results, you should be entitled to R&D tax credits. So many businesses fail to claim this form of tax relief, which is why we created this free guide that explains how it all works.
In a nutshell, the R&D tax credits scheme allows a business to claim back 33% of the money it invests into research and development projects. R&D doesn’t just apply to products, as it can also be in the form of creating innovative new services, processes, machinery or software. If you’re entitled to R&D tax relief, the money is paid to your company either as a cash sum or a reduction of your corporation tax bill, which can make an enormous positive difference to your cash flow and profit margins for the tax year.
