Corporation Tax Return Deadlines
The deadlines for filing a tax return will vary.
The company tax return must be submitted to the HMRC within 12 months of the accounting period end to which it relates.
Corporation Tax must be paid electronically by nine months and a day after the accounting period end.
If you’ve made more than £1.5 million in profits, you’ll have to pay your Corporation Tax in instalments. Assuming your company has a 12 month accounting period, your instalment dates will be:
- 6 months and 13 days after the first day of your accounting period
- 3 months after your first instalment
- 3 months after your second instalment
- 3 months and 14 days after the last day of your accounting period
