Can corporation tax be warehoused?

Can corporation tax be warehoused?

Corporation tax, also known as corporate income tax, is a tax on the income or profits of a corporation. In some cases, corporations may be able to “warehouse” their tax liability, which means that they can defer paying the tax until a later date.

There are several ways that corporations can warehouse their tax liability, including:

  1. Carrying forward tax losses: In some cases, corporations may be able to carry forward tax losses to offset income in future tax years, which can reduce the amount of tax that is due.
  2. Making tax-deferred investments: Corporations can make investments that are tax-deferred, meaning that the tax on the investment income is not due until a later date. For example, a corporation could invest in a tax-deferred retirement plan, such as a 401(k) plan.
  3. Using tax credits: Corporations may be able to claim tax credits, which can reduce their tax liability and effectively warehouse their tax liability until the credit can be used. For example, a corporation may be able to claim a credit for research and development expenses that can be carried forward and used to offset future tax liability.

It’s worth noting that warehousing tax liability is not the same as avoiding or evading tax. Corporations are still required to pay their tax liability, and failure to do so can result in penalties and interest. Corporations should consult with their tax advisors and local tax authorities for more information about their options for warehousing tax liability.
