Corporation tax rates
Your specific business circumstances may mean that you are entitled to relief’s – reducing your overall company tax. e.g. if your company spends a lot of money on research & development you could be entitled to an R&D tax credit. If you have a property business its clear that the Chancellor is pushing forward measures to get people to incorporate. There are many advantages to incorporate your property business. The most important being that it avoids the impact of clause 24. If you do it right you can in fact totally avoid paying CGT and SDLT on your incorporation. This is supported by case law and statute. But you have to do things properly to successfully defend a HMRC challenge. You can also totally avoid IHT by setting up the right type of company structure. Again this is supported by case law and statute.
