Definition: Advance Corporation Tax

Full Definition of Advance Corporation Tax

Advance Corporation Tax is the amount of tax paid by a company on the amount of profit distributed as dividend payments.

Companies pay their dividends net of this tax. Some institutions, charities and tax-free PEPs are able to reclaim the tax. However, Chancellor Gordon Brown abolished the payment of tax credits for pension schemes and other companies with immediate effect in his first budget on July 2nd, 1997. This unwelcome move left only PEP -holders and charities benefiting from the return of tax credits.
