Corporation Tax and Marginal Relief From 2023

2023: Corporation tax rises to 25%. Profit to £50,000 only pays 19%. Profit £50,000 to £250,000, 25% less marginal relief. Here’s how to calculate that.

Corporation Tax Rates and Reliefs from 2023

As a consequence of the 2021 budget, corporation tax at 25% marks a return to the era of the high company taxation of the 1990s.

Marginal relief for moderate SME profits, albeit at a 2/300 fraction, far less generous than was the case back in the 1990s will also make a comeback, this time for profits between £50,000 and £250,000.

Taxable profits not exceeding £50,000 will continue to be taxed by HMRC at 19%..Here are examples showing how the different tax charges and marginal relief will work out..

Small Taxable Profits 2023
Threshold £50,000
Taxable Profit £45,000
Applicable Corporation Tax Rate 19%
Corporation Tax Charge £8,550


Marginal Profits £50,000 to £250,000 2023
Upper Threshold £250,000
less: Taxable Profit £100,000
Marginal Balance £150,000
Divide Marginal Balance by 200 £750
Multiply by 3 (equals Marginal Relief) £2,250
Tax at 25% of Taxable Profit £25,000
less: Marginal Relief £2,250
Corporation Tax Charge £22,750

Taxable Profits Above £250,000

For all taxable profits above £250,000 .25% is the flat rate.

This means that none of the concessions above apply to the first £50,000 or to profits between that and the £250,000 threshold. HMRC will charge orporation tax at the rate of 25% on the whole of the taxable profit.
