Provisional Tax Payment for 2020 Corporation Tax

Dear Friends / Clients

Like prior years, you are required to calculate the 2020 Corporation Tax of your Company and to proceed with the prepayment of the 2020 Corporation Tax in two instalments as follows:
• by the 31st July 2020, and
• by the 31st December 2020

If you do not prepay at least 75% of the Corporation Tax in these two instalments then 10% Penalty will be added to the Year End Tax Liability. Therefore, it is more tax efficient to prepay this tax and to avoid the penalty.

If an over payment takes place then this over payment can be carried against the 2020 Corporation Tax or other Applicable Taxes affecting your Company (i.e. it can be netted off). A tax refund is also an option following the examination of the computation by the Tax Commissioner, though not recommended.
Our advice

New Companies and / or Companies with unpredictable profitability should not proceed with the prepayment of the 2020 Corporation Tax Unless Cash Flow permits or / and their profitability for 2020 is more than €25,000 as the cost of proceeding with the prepayment of the Corporation Tax is higher than the saving.
