Limited Company

If you are looking to have your own limited company, you will become a company director. As one of almost 1.3 million companies registered in the UK, you will have a number of statutory and financial obligations; you will have to submit annual accounts to Companies House (the registrar of companies in the UK), run the company solvently and responsibly, and meet your HMRC tax deadlines.

Fortunately, most of the legwork involved in running a company can be taken on by a specialist contractor accountant, although as a director you are responsible for meeting the company’s obligations. Most contractors operate via their own companies, and compare the umbrella would be happy to introduce contractor accountants who will be more than happy to show you the ropes.

One of the main benefits of contracting via a limited company is that it is the most tax-efficient way to operate. Unlike a permanent or umbrella employee, you pay yourself in the form of a basic salary (typically low), and the remainder is drawn down in the form of dividends. Dividends are not subject to National Insurance Contributions, which results in a significant tax saving.
