Accounting treatment on interest on directors loan

How to account for the tax and interest payment

Didn't find your answer?

I have a director who wants to charge interest on the amount he has loaned the company.  I know form CT61 needs to be completed.  The company is paying £6000 gross interest, of which £1200 income tax will be deducted.  How should this be shown in the accounts? As the company owes the £1200 income tax, should this be shown as £6000 interest paid, £1200 other taxes (current liabilities <1 year), and £4800 to his directors loan account? (edited - sorry got the figures the wrong way around before!) Or is there some other way to show this?  I only have a few limited companies and have never bothered with charging interest on directors loans before, but this guy is insistent on doing so.  Any help would be appreciated.

The interest the company is paying is £6,000, so that is the debit entry that goes to its P&L account. Surely you can work out what the credit entries are, and where to post them.

So basically £6000 interest on P&L, £4800 to directors loan account and £1200 to other taxes creditor?
