Can directors charge interest on loans offered to Ltd co?Make Text Bigger
As a director of a Limited company can I charge interest on loans offered to my company and what is the allowable interest Permitted by HMRC?
Many thanks. Malcolm
Editors Note: From HMRC >> https://www.gov.uk/directors-loans/you-lend-your-company-money
If you lend your company money: Your company does not pay Corporation Tax on money you lend it.
If you charge interest
Interest you charge your company on a loan counts as both:
- a business expense for your company
- personal income for you
You must report the income on a personal Self Assessment tax return.
Your company must:
- pay you the interest less Income Tax at the basic rate of 20%
- report and pay the Income Tax every quarter using form CT61
