is there corporation tax /taxable income / taxable profit on an insurance payout for a limited company
Hello and welcome to the site. Thank you for your question.

Please expand on the nature of payout ...
Is it for loss of goods, consequential losses etc?

Many thanks

Hi, the payout was for Loss of stock in a fire and fixtures/fittings.

David, thank you for your prompt reply.

The company would have expensed the insurance premiums as normal allowable expenditure and got CT relief.

Any insurance payout would be treated as other income in the accounts of the company and therefore chargeable to corporation tax.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
