Rishi Sunak’s Silver Lining – Take Advantage Of The Corporation Tax Super Deduction On Capital Investments From April 2021

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Mar 11, 2021 10:24:11 AM

The impending corporation tax hike from 19% to 25% for businesses reporting profits of £250K or more was one of the less welcome changes brought in by the 2021 budget and met with a mixed response from the business community. The changes come into effect from April 2023, with corporation tax being applied on a sliding scale, from 19% on small businesses filing £50,000 or less in annual profits, to the full 25% on everything in excess of £250,000.

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Feb 4, 2021 5:47:58 PM

I was so thrilled when Andrea contacted me and offered me the opportunity to join Hone-All.

Due to Hone-All being one of our valued suppliers as well as a competitor, I had visited previously and had been impressed with the processes and procedures on show. So much so, I did try and emulate and implement some in my previous company but didn’t really have the time to complete them before the decision was made to close us.
