David Laws MP, Yeovil voted with the majority (Aye).
Corporation tax is, very simply, a tax on the profits of a company resident in the UK. There is a main rate of corporation tax which applies to companies with profits of over £1.5 million per year. Companies qualify for the lower rate when their profits are at or below £300,000 per year (this 'small companies' corporation tax' rate was set at 19% for 2005/06 - also unchanged from the previous year).
