Overview - UK Corporate Tax Rate
The United Kingdom is ranked 1st in 2017 on the Forbes Best Countries for Business thanks to its low corporation tax and the ease to grow businesses outside the UK/ EU.
The current tax rate for all company profits except for ring fence profits is 19% in the year of 2018/19. The government has intended to cut UK Corporation Tax to 17% from the tax year starting in April 2020. The UK has been recognised as a lighter compliance burden than most other jurisdictions. The UK performs well on post-filing interactions with tax authorities, specifically securing a VAT refund and correcting an error in a corporation tax return. In many other countries, this would be more time consuming and costly.
