Your January Tax Payments
In January you will be paying the balance of 2018/19 tax and 50% of the full 2018/19 liability on account of the tax due for the 2019/20 tax year.
With the drought last year and the outlook for prices for the rest of this year being on a downward trend, it is difficult to see how the current year’s profits are going to compare to last year. If you anticipate your taxable profit for the current year is likely to be much lower than 2018/19, then you may have some scope to reduce your payments on account in January to preserve cashflow.
