NOTE: If your company’s accounting period is longer than 12 months, the first tax payment deadline is normally 21 months and 1 day after your accounting period started, and the second one is 9 months and 1 day after your accounting period ends.

For example, a company with an accounting period running from 01/12/2020 to 31/03/2022 will pay the first tranche of corporation tax by 01/09/2022 and the balance by 01/01/2023.

If your profits are more than £1.5 million, then tax is payable quarterly with two payments before the end of your accounting period and two after. The first payment is normally six months and 13 days after the start of the period, with the others three-monthly from that point.

Some general deadlines to plan for:

  • Enterprise Management Incentives (EMI) schemes ‘notice of options granted’ to be submitted: within 92 days of grant
  • Submit your self-assessment tax return (if filing a paper copy): 31 October 2022
  • Make Capital Gains Tax payment for gains on residential property: 60 days after completion
  • PAYE and National Insurance payments due: 19th calendar day of the month after end of month or quarter as applicable (22nd for electronic payments).
