The following Corporation Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
When companies make certain payments to specified types of recipient, they are required to deduct income tax at source and pay it to HMRC. In doing so, they act as a collector of tax. The liability to the tax is borne by the recipient of the related income who should usually be able to claim relief for the tax suffered at source.
The main instances where companies may have to deduct income tax at source are:
payments of interest which are not to companies
payments of interest overseas
payments of interest to partnerships (unless all the partners / members are companies), and
ITA 2007, ss 874, 946
Tax is deducted at the rate of 20% in respect of interest and royalties.
A common example of the payment of interest by a company to an individual, is where a director has made a loan to a company. A commercial rate of interest may be paid by the company on the director’s loan account, as one way of extracting funds for the director. The interest is an allowable deduction for the company, provided the loan money is used within the company’s business, and not for an ‘unallowable purpose’.
Companies do not suffer income tax on amounts received from other UK companies and, likewise, they do not withhold tax on payments to other UK companies.
