Who is entitled to Marginal Relief?
From 1st April 2023, the main rate for Corporation Tax rate will increase from 19% to 25%. Companies with annual profits of less than £50,000 will continue to pay Corporation Tax at 19%.
Companies with taxable profits between £50,000 (the lower limit) and £250,000 (the upper limit) will pay tax at the main rate of 25% but may be able to apply Marginal Relief to their tax calculation to reduce their Corporation Tax bill.
The lower and upper limits may be adjusted if your company’s accounting period is more or less than a calendar year, or if your company has any associated companies.
