Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
again.If you have only been in business months, then your first partnership tax return will be 2014/15 tax year which ends on 5 April 2015. I would suggest you run your first accounts to 31 March 2015 or 5 April 2015 to keep things simple and to ensure that you aren't taxed twice on some of the first year's profits.When you draw income from the partnership, you don't pay tax on that. The partnership itself doesn't pay tax or national insurance contributions. You disclose the accounts figures in the partnership tax return (see the 2014 partnership tax return here), divide the profits between the partners and each partner discloses their share of the partnership profit (not drawings) in their own tax returns in the partnership pages (see the 2014 pages under the heading Supplementary pages here). Each partner then pays tax on their share of the profit and on any other income they may have through their self-assessment tax return.I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
