Businesses may be entitled to claim corporation tax repayments for anticipated losses, before the end of the current accounting period. HMRC updated their guidance earlier this week, in response to the exceptional circumstances facing companies during the pandemic and following pressure from the accounting and tax professions. This could be hugely helpful to many businesses expecting significant losses in the coming months, particularly those in the hardest hit industries such as travel, entertainment and hospitality.
HMRC will consider claims on an individual basis and companies will need to provide sufficient evidence to support a claim such as: revised profit and loss forecasts, management accounts, draft tax computations, along with relevant reports and documentation.
