Limited Company taxes. Over here! 👋 Yep. You with the business. Let’s talk.

Limited Company taxes 🤢 Who wants to sort them? Not you. 

We do, though. For better or worse, we’ve got your back 🤝

How do Limited Companies pay tax? 

Before we answer your question, let’s be clear about what a Limited Company is 🔍

A Limited Company is NOT the same as a sole trader (a.k.a a self employed person) business. 

But how do you tell them apart? Well, a Limited Company is considered to be its own legal entity. This means the company’s finances are separate from your personal ones. 

This is different for sole traders. As a sole trader, there is little distinction between you and your business. So, any business debts will become your debts, and so on 🤕

To get the full picture, check out our blog Sole Trader vs Limited Company which one to choose?

What tax do Limited Companies pay?

We’ve already set the scene, so you should know by now that things work a little differently for Limited Companies 🤔

Unlike sole traders, Limited Companies don’t have to pay Income tax. Instead, they pay something called Corporation tax 🪄

Corporation tax is a tax paid by businesses based on their yearly profits.

If you run a Limited Company and your business makes £50,000 or more a year (minus any allowable expenses), you’ll pay tax at a rate of 25%. Anything under and you’ll pay tax at a rate of 19%. 

Unlike sole traders, Limited Companies are not entitled to a tax-free Personal Allowance 😢 But, that’s not all. 

Is your Limited Company earning over £85K a year? Congrats 👏Just don’t forget about Value Added Tax (VAT). This is a tax added to most goods and services in the UK, at a current rate of 20%.

Last but not least, you’ll need to pay Employers’ National Insurance contributions if you employ staff. 

For most of us everyday folks, National Insurance is deducted from our monthly salary via PAYE. But, Limited Companies with employees will need to pay HMRC 13.8% in National Insurance for employees earning over £242 per week in the 2023-2024 tax year.
