Why it pays to go limited

If you set up a limited company, you can benefit from a number of tax-efficient perks. One of these is the ability to pay yourself a combination of salary and dividends – reducing the amount of Income Tax and National Insurance you’ll be charged. You can also register for the flat rate VAT scheme, which allows you to keep back some of the tax you charge clients – instead of sending it all to HMRC.

Increase your take home pay

Setting up as a limited company is widely considered to be the most tax-efficient way of working. You can take earnings from the business as a combination of salary and dividends – reducing your overall tax liability.

Tax planning opportunities

Benefit from the advice of qualified experts to ensure you're ensuring you and your family are covered through pensions, government schemes and insurances

Expenses tax relief

Never miss out on claiming back expenditures you make for your business by understanding everything that you can and can't claim for.


Having that Limited (LTD) next to your name affords you a level of respect and opens your business opportunity pool for who can/will work with you. Plus, helps when it comes to your exit strategy
