Limited company accounting service
The limited company route is the most tax-efficient way of operating for most business types. As a director and shareholder, you have the flexibility to draw a portion of the funds as dividend rather than salary. This way, your tax burden is reduced and you can exercise more control over your finances too.
However, the administration involved in operating as a limited company can often be time consuming and complex. Moreover, you will lose some of your privacy because the directors or shareholders personal details and abbreviated accounts are open to public scrutiny. Inspite of these little disadvantages, there are many distinct advantages of operating as a limited company.
Advantages of operating a limited company
Limited liability - The Company is a separate legal entity and can protect your personal assets. If for any reason, your company fails to pay all of its debt or ceases trading, your personal assets are still protected from the business creditors.
Tax savings - Directors can apportion some of the profits as dividend instead of salary. Since dividends do not attract national insurance, trading as a limited company can be more tax efficient.
Status and appearance - Operating as limited company makes the business appear bigger and more professional. Shareholder succession is also more straightforward.
