Our bespoke service allows us to help advise you on the latest exemptions, allowances and deductions available to minimise your tax liability.
By understanding your unique business needs, we can also advise the most efficient way to structure your business for growth and to mitigate risk.

How DS Burge & Co takes the stress out of your company tax return
- Prior to working on your Company Tax Return, we’ll ask for a number of documents from you, which you can post to us, send via email or upload via our website. We’ll ask for the information well in advance of the deadline so there is plenty of time for us to get them finalised, this also allows you more time to budget for your corporation tax.
- We’ll then check through your accounts, make sure everything is in order, and compute your Company Tax Return.
- As part of your Company Tax Return, we’ll also work out how much your business owes in Corporation Tax, taking advantage of any tax relief you can claim. Where possible, we’ll also help reduce your business’s tax liabilities.
- We’ll then submit your Corporation Tax Return CT600 and file it with HMRC and Companies Hosue

What is a corporation tax return?
If your business is a Limited company (“Limited” or “Ltd”) you must complete a Company Tax Return, officially known as a “Corporation Tax Return (CT600)”. This is irrespective of whether your business makes a profit or a loss.
If your business is a limited company based in the UK, you must pay corporation tax on your taxable profits. Even if your business isn’t primarily based in the UK, if you operate a UK branch or office you will need to pay corporation tax on profits from your UK actives.
To work out how much corporation tax you will need to pay, we will need to submit a company tax return on your behalf.
Company profits that are subject to corporation tax include:
- Trading profits
- Income from investments
- Chargeable gains (selling assets for more than they cost)
Following on from the submission of your company tax return, you will then need to pay your corporation tax before a secondary deadline (more below).

I’ve been using Kieran from DS Burge & co for a number of years now and I can’t rate them highly enough. I had never used a professional accountant for my self assessment before, so was anxious at how it would work and what to expect. Kieran was fantastic, he put me at ease immediately and was great at explaining everything to me, and answered all my questions in a clear and extremely helpful way. Since our initial meet, he had always been incredibly responsive to any emails or calls from me. Very professional, super responsive, great service. I wouldn’t use anyone else.Emma K.

I started using DS Burge and Co following a recommendation from my brother. I have been with them now for 6 or 7 years now and I always find them to be extremely responsive and efficient. Kieran and Darius are extremely knowledgeable and up to date. I have recommended them to a number of friends who have started using them and then told me how good they. This reflects well on me but it has also confirmed my impression that they are a quality outfit.Dr M.
Last year I got a very scary letter from HMRC demanding I pay them £17k in lost taxes. Kieran from DS Burge & Co was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in getting that bill largely reduced and ensuring that HMRC don't make the same mistake again.

Corporation tax return deadline?
The deadline for filing your Company Tax Return is 12 months after the end of your ‘accounting period’ it relates to. The exact date is not the same for every business, and will depend on when your company was set-up. If we didn’t help with your company formation, and you’re unsure of your accounting period we can help you find the relevant dates.
There is then a secondary deadline for actually paying your Corporation Tax. This is typically 9 months and one day after the end of your accounting period discussed above.
Please beware that there is a penalty for missing your Company Tax Return deadline, and this will vary depending on how late you file.
