How is company tax calculated?



If a company has a turnover of R1 million on a specific month, cost of sales is R600 000, with a GP of R400 000, but overheads exceed that amount, is any company tax payable?

You only pay tax on profits, not losses. The loss will be rolled forward each year and offset against any profits you do make in the future.
