The government have been gradually bringing down the so-called main rate of corporation tax that applies large companies with profits in excess of £300,000, in an effort to entice companies to come and trade in the UK.
Unfortunately, the government have not made any corresponding changes to the small profits rate. And so from April 2015, we find ourselves with a uniform corporation tax rate of 20% across all companies; irrespective of the level of their profits.
