Company Taxation

Your company or association must file a Company Tax Return if you get a ‘notice to deliver a Company Tax Return’ from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

You must still send a return if you make a loss or have no Corporation Tax to pay.

You don’t send a Company Tax Return if you’re self-employed as a sole trader or in a partnership - but you must send a Self Assessment return.

What it involves

When you file your tax return, you work out your:
• profit or loss for Corporation Tax (this is different from the profit or loss shown in your annual accounts)
• Corporation Tax bill


The deadline for your tax return is 12 months after the end of the accounting period it covers. You’ll have to pay a penalty if you miss the deadline.

There’s a separate deadline to pay your Corporation Tax bill. It’s usually 9 months and one day after the end of the accounting period.

Let MSF Associates Accountants take care of your tax, while you take care of your business.

Self Assessment

Tax Returns MSF Accountants LeedsHM Revenue & Customs send out Self Assessment Returns each year in April to those individuals registered as self-employed or who receive income that is not taxed through the PAYE system.

The Return covers the previous tax year period from 6th April through to 5th April. The deadline for submission is 31st January following year.

If you have received Self Assessment Return, then don’t delay as failure to submit on time can and will result in financial penalty.

Who has to fill in a Self-Assessment Return?

The majority of people in the UK are taxed under PAYE and do not have to complete a Self Assessment tax return. However, where you have income that is not taxed at source or may be liable to higher rate tax on income that has only had basic rate tax stopped you will probably need to complete a self-assessment return. It is your responsibility to notify charge-ability to tax to HMRC.

The following people usually have to complete one...

  • Anyone who is self-employed;
  • A company director;
  • A trustee;
  • Pensioners with an annual income of £100,000 or more;
  • Employees or pensioners with an annual income from savings or investments of £10,000 or more;
  • An employee or pensioner with untaxed annual income of £2,500 or more;
  • A landlord who rents out property or land;

Let MSF Associates sort your tax affairs, we will calculate your tax liability for you and advise exactly how much tax needs to be paid and when you need to pay it. We will Complete and submit your tax return to the HM Revenue and Customs.
