Mainstream corporation tax

Updated: Aug 20, 2021

Under the imputation system introduced in 1973 corporation tax collected from companies was divided into two parts, advance corporation tax is deducted at the standard rate of income tax from dividends paid. Undistributed profits are taxed once those profits have been agreed with the Inland Revenue and the tax, collected at a different date and often at a different rate due to budget changes, is known as mainstream corporation tax.
