To calculate the corporation tax liability, first determine the net trading profit by subtracting deductible expenses from the gross trading receipts. Deductible expenses include raw materials, wages, and general production costs. Net trading profit: £500,000 - (£75,000 + £400,000 + £5,000) = £20,000. Add the gain from the sale of land: £20,000 + £150,000 = £170,000. The corporation tax is calculated at 19% of the total taxable profit: £170,000 x 19% = £32,300. Therefore, the company's corporation tax liability is £32,300. 

Key Point: The calculation of corporation tax liability involves determining net trading profit and adding other taxable gains, then applying the applicable tax rate.
