Tax on an outstanding directors loan

Postby Jon_sh » Tue Jan 04, 2022 9:01 pm


If I have a directors loan of £200 which has not been paid back within 9 months and 1 day, in one financial year and proceed to pay the 32.5% Corporation tax on that loan...

Then, the next year, the loan has not been repaid, but has in fact grown to £2500... In this year, do I have to pay tax on £500, or do I have to pay tax on £2500 - Baring in mind I already paid tax on £2000 the previous year.

All articles I have read state that I have to pay tax on the outstanding amount, but none of them have information on outstanding amounts that already attracted corporation tax which has been paid.

I have not been able to get hold of my accountant today and I need to get the answwer to this. Thanks in advance.

You pay tax on loans advanced during the accounting period. In year 2, £500 was advanced.

(I’m presuming you mean £2000 was advanced in year 1)
