What is tax funding?

Tax funding, or tax loans, is a financing solution that is used by businesses that may struggle with managing tax payments. Tax funding is used to spread the cost of tax payments and ensure that a business makes said tax payments on time.

Tax funding can be used by any business, but is typically used by small businesses and sole traders who may not have the necessary cash reserves to fully cover the tax payment.

How does tax funding work?

A business will have tax deadlines throughout the year, but sometimes the cost of the tax bills can leave businesses without a sufficient amount of cash flow to confidently continue trading. A tax loan lets business spread the tax payment into manageable monthly payments, which limits the impact on cash flow and working capital.

What can tax funding be used for?

Tax funding can be used for both personal and corporate tax bills. Tax funding can be used to cover:

  • PAYE bills
  • VAT bills
  • Corporation tax bills
  • Income tax bills
  • Self Assessment Tax bills

For more information on what type of tax can be covered via tax funding, you can speak to one of our account managers at 01244 207276.

Why do businesses apply for tax funding?

Tax funding is useful for businesses that want to pay their tax bills on time, but do not want to remove a large amount of money from their cash flow or capital reserves. It lets SMEs manage their cash flow more effectively as they are allowed to spread the tax payment over a period of time. 

By managing cash flow effectively, it allows a business to invest money into other areas of the business.

Do I have to pay tax as a sole trader?

As a sole trader you will have to pay a self assessment tax return. You must send a tax return if in the last tax year (6 April to 5 April) you earned over £1,000 (before tax relief). To pay your tax bill you must register by the 5th October and repay the self assessment bill by the 31st January. 

If your business as a sole trader has a turnover above £85,000 you must register for VAT. This means that you will also have to submit VAT returns to HMRC following your registration.

To learn more about self assessments, please check out the government website.

Do I have to pay tax as a limited company?

The tax structure of a limited company generally differs from a sole trader, but ultimately limited companies do have to pay tax. Limited Companies must pay corporation tax on their profits, so must register for corporation tax. They must also register for VAT if the business earns over £85,000 in the financial year.

Tax will also have to be paid on personal income that is paid, whether it is a salary or in dividends.

What happens if I do not pay my tax bill on time?

Missing a tax payment deadline should always be avoided, as it can lead to penalties. If HMRC believes that you will not be able to pay your tax payment in full now, but you can pay in the future they may offer you extra time.

However, if HMRC doubts that you will be able to make your tax payments on time, they will ask you to pay your tax bill immediately. If you fail to do so, HMRC will begin the process of ‘enforcement action’ to receive the money from you.

Paul is calm, thoughtful and positive during a period where so many businesses are in panic. I am thankful for his and JPM's continued support and will continue to recommend clients in need to Paul.
