This increase comes with new requirements. For instance, the 25% Tax rate applies to Non-ring fenced Corporations that make £250,000 or more in profits during a financial year. A small profits rate of 19% is being put forward. Companies that make £50,000 or less in profits during a financial year are eligible for small profits rates. Companies that make between £50,000 and £250,000 in profits will pay the base Tax rate of 19%. There will be a one-off payment of £50 Mill as companies familiarise themselves with the new Tax amount and discover what Tax bracket they should be.
