UK Company Corporation Tax Requirements

A UK company must file a notice of its existence to the H M Revenue & Customs within 3 months of incorporation, and must file with the HMRC a Corporation Tax Return no later than 12 months after its year end. Should either of these dates be missed then penalties and interest become payable.

Registering for VAT

Having a Tax Agent is usually a persuasive factor in allowing the company to get VAT registration. The HMRC require evidence of trading or that there is an intention to do business in the future. Items that can be persuasive in your company obtaining a VAT number:

  • Suppliers in the UK
  • Customers in the UK
  • Appointment of a UK based Tax Agent
  • Appointment of a UK based Company Secretary or a Company Director

Notification of Commencement of Activity

After your company is incorporated, HMRC send a document asking for notification that activity has begun in a company. As your UK Tax Agent we would send this document to the HMRC for your company.A detailed application form must be completed and submitted - it takes around 4 weeks for the HMRC to issue a VAT number.

Clients from overseas please read our guide to obtaining a UK VAT Registration number.

Advantages for having a registered tax agent

As your registered tax agent we have:

  • Access, through INFO express, to a range of HMRC automated services specially designed to help with most common enquiries
  • An assigned agent account manager to facilitate your relationship with Inland Revenue
  • Spread your return filing over the year rather than have it all occur during one peak period.

Advantages for clients

Dealing with agents and tax advisers is an important part of the way HMRC does business and we know that having an efficient agent authorisation process is a key issue for you.
