Budget Resolutions 2006 — Abolish corporation tax starting rate — 28 Mar 2006 at 21:38

The majority Aye voters agreed to abolish the corporation tax starting rate[1]. They also abolished a number of other measures relating to corporation tax.

Corporation Tax starting rate

Corporation tax is, very simply, a tax on profits made by companies resident in the UK. The starting rate for corporation tax was a measure introduced by Gordon Brown in his 1999 budget[2]. This meant companies who made a profit between £0 and £10,000 per year were taxed at 10% on those profits.

However, in the 2002 budget Gordon Brown reduced this starting rate to 0%[3] meaning, of course, companies with profits of no more than £10,000 paid no corporation tax.

Nevertheless, in the 2006 budget Brown decided to get rid of the starting rate entirely[4]. This meant companies with profits of between £0 and £10,000 would now be charged at the small companies' corporation tax rate which in 2006 was 19%[5]. Small companies corporation tax rate applies to companies whose profits do not exceed £300,000 per year.

Why scrap the starting rate?

This particular vote was on whether the corporation tax starting rate should be abolished. Labour wanted to scrap the starting rate because when it was set to 0% in 2002 this resulted in a large number of small businesses turning themselves into companies[6]. Consequently, many of these businesses were avoiding paying corporation tax.

In 2004 the Chancellor introduced a 'non-corporate distribution rate (NCDR)'[7] to try to recover more tax from businesses who were becoming companies (NCDR was also abolished in this vote). However, in the 2006 budget the government thought this was still a major issue and removed the starting rate entirely.

The Conservatives and Liberal Democrats both opposed these changes in corporation tax. Alan Duncan MP of the Tories explains as follows[8]:

  • 'the 0 per cent. rate has been abolished—the Institute for Fiscal Studies described that as an "unfortunate experience". The Chancellor made the bizarre claim in the Budget that that "simplification" would save business £9 million. Secondly, thresholds remain unchanged and have not even been uprated with inflation. We now have more corporation tax than Sweden.'
