North Sea Oil Taxation

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

We’ve had some discussion about fossil fuel subsidies, so I though it worth just summarising the position with regards to North Sea oil.

Producers of North Sea oil are taxed in three ways:-

1) Petroleum Revenue Tax (PRT) – this only applies to fields operating, or with consent, prior to 1993.

PRT is charged at 50% of profits, specifically for that field. In other words, losses from one field cannot be offset against the profits from another.

2) Corporation Tax – this is normally at 30% of profits (after PRT has been accounted for). Note that this is higher than normal corporation tax, which is now 20%.

3) Supplementary Charge – this is an addition to Corporation Tax, and is set at 20%, calculated against the profit before Corporation Tax.

So we can summarise:

Pre 1993 Post 1993
Profit £100 £100
PRT £50 NIL
Profit after PRT
