If you’ve fallen behind with paying your corporation tax, it’s important you understand the options available to you to so you can work to resolve the matter.
What happens if I miss a payment?
Corporation tax is payable on the profits of your business and on capital gains with the figure calculated from the year-end accounts that you submit. Any tax owed will be payable 9 months and a day after the date your tax accounting period ends.
HMRC will send a reminder and warning letter that your payment is overdue, but you will receive charges from the moment your payment is late and you will also be charged interest on the money owed.
If you haven’t contacted HMRC already to inform them that you are unable to pay your tax bill, it is important to do so quickly. They will want to see that you’re proactively trying to work with them to address the problem and that you aren’t just trying to avoid paying tax.
If your tax bill remains unpaid, HMRC has options for recovering the money. To understand the impact of these options, it’s important to get professional advice.

Is it time to take action to deal with my tax bill problem?
If you know that you will be unable to pay your corporate tax bill or you’re already behind with your payments it’s important not to ignore the situation, no matter how stressful it seems.
If you take no action HMRC may commence a winding up procedure – to avoid that path you should seek advice quickly. With professional insolvency support you can understand the best options available to you and the implications of each.
Only then can you choose the right solution for your circumstances and start addressing the burden of debt, which affects not just your finances, but also your health and wellbeing and those around you.
