Understanding Corporation Tax Changes in 2024: The UK’s tax landscape is dynamic, and 2024 is no exception. Keeping up-to-date with the changes is critical for eCommerce entities. GM Professional Accountants ensures your business is aware of the latest tax rates, allowances, and reliefs. For example, if the corporation tax rate changes to 25%, an eCommerce company with a taxable profit of £100,000 would face a tax liability of £25,000, barring other deductions and reliefs.

Organising Financial Records: Accurate financial record-keeping is the backbone of effective tax filing. When dealing with platforms like Amazon, Shopify, eBay, and Etsy, it’s essential to have a meticulous record of transactions, expenses, and revenues. We assist in creating robust accounting systems that cater to the specific requirements of each platform.

Claiming Appropriate Deductions: Maximising tax efficiency involves utilising all available deductions. For instance, an eCommerce business on Amazon may claim deductions for expenses like Amazon seller fees, shipping costs, and packaging materials. Similarly, a business using Shopify could deduct subscription fees and costs associated with website design and maintenance. GM Professional Accountants can guide you through identifying and claiming such deductions.

Example of Tax Deductions: Consider an eCommerce business with an annual profit of £120,000. The company incurs expenses like platform fees (£5,000), shipping and packaging (£10,000), and marketing (£15,000). These deductible expenses totalling £30,000 would reduce the taxable profit to £90,000, thus lowering the corporation tax liability.

Addressing International Tax Concerns: Selling on international platforms requires a keen understanding of global tax issues, including VAT and multi-currency transactions. We navigate these complexities, ensuring compliance across borders.

Leveraging Technology for Tax Compliance: Modern digital tools and software can significantly streamline tax preparation and filing. We recommend and integrate the best tech solutions for your business needs.

Planning for the Future: Our approach goes beyond compliance, focusing on strategic planning to support your business’s growth and sustainability.

Conclusion: Navigating corporation tax filing for your eCommerce business on platforms like Amazon, Shopify, eBay, and Etsy is a sophisticated process.
