Course Certificate in Corporation Tax


This course provides an intensive 2-day introduction to corporation tax. It is aimed at corporate lawyers and in-house practitioners with little or no experience of company taxation. It will also be of interest to newly qualified solicitors who are looking to develop a practice in corporate tax, and be a useful refresher for those returning from a career break.

The course will provide a comprehensive overview of the framework for taxing companies that are resident in the UK or operate in the UK through a permanent establishment. As tax is nearly always a factor in structuring a transaction and many matters are tax driven, developing an understanding of company taxation will assist practitioners in providing effective advice in their own specialist fields. Delegates will also be made aware of the ever-changing landscape of anti-tax avoidance legislation which may apply to a transaction whether or not there is an intention to save tax. Key principles will be illustrated through case studies and worked examples.

The course will be presented by Annette Beresford, a solicitor and chartered tax adviser who has more than 10 years’ experience at a major global law firm advising on corporate tax matters as part of her practice.

The course will include the following elements (which are subject to change as new topics emerge):

  • General principles of corporation tax, including which persons / entities are liable to pay it, how the amount of taxable profits is determined and how corporation tax is calculated
  • Corporation tax compliance, including due dates for making payments and filing returns, enquiries and discovery assessments, and what happens in the event of compliance failures
  • Loss relief, including relief for trading losses, carry forward of relief, group relief and consortium relief.
  • Transfers of trade
  • Corporate chargeable gains, including computation of gains, chargeable gains group, share exchanges and disposals of substantial shareholdings
  • Comparison of a sale of shares and a sale of assets
  • Close companies
  • Distributions
  • Withholding taxes, including withholding from annual payments, payroll withholding and non-resident landlord scheme
