Course overview

Corporation Tax is a complex area of taxation and without a proper appreciation of the rules, it is easy for costly mistakes to occur. This comprehensive course will help people involved in the preparation of the Corporation Tax return understand the rules and regulations and how they should be applied.  It demonstrates the most effective ways to ensure you are not paying too much Corporation Tax and guides you through the various tax reliefs available.

The course will examine all the key aspects of the Corporation Tax System and clearly illustrate how to perform the calculation of the Corporation Tax payable. It will describe the procedural requirements that need to be in place to ensure that filing deadlines are met and payments are made on time so that you reduce the risk of HMRC levying unwanted penalties and charging interest.
