Removal of Tax Obstacle to Multiple Companies
Today is a big date in my calendar. It is one I have been looking forward to for a number of years now. 1st April 2015 is when the main rate of corporation tax finds the same level as the small companies’ rate at 20%.
The small companies’ rate is on profits under £1.5m and there was a horrible marginal rate of corporation tax to pay when your profits exceeded £300,000.
These thresholds were divided by the number of companies you have.
So, if you wanted a holding company and a subsidiary you paid marginal rate at £150,000+.
If you had 3 different companies and formed a group to use group taxation, you were into the marginal rate when profits went over £75,000.
Marginal rate is now no more. Hurrah!
You can now have as many companies as you want. Yippee!
