Limited companies

Why become a limited company?

The main advantage to trading as a limited company is that companies pay a fixed rate of 20% in corporation tax on annual profits up to £300,000. As a sole trader you are subjected to the normal income tax rates which includes the 40% bracket for income over £31,866 and class 4 national insurance of 9%!

Are there any disadvantages?

Accountancy fees are higher for limited companies as there is a lot more administration required but if we make a recommendation that you should incorporate (go limited!) we will always demonstrate to you exactly how much tax you will save and go through the pros and cons in full so that you can make an informed decision.

What are the deadlines?

Companies have their own financial year end given by companies house, this is usually twelve months after they initially set up. They then have 9 months from their financial year end to file their abbreviated accounts with companies house and 12 months to file their corporation tax return and accounts with HMRC.

What can I claim for?

The expenses you can claim for are very specific to each trade, for example, a consultant cannot claim for all the same things a plumber can claim for although there will be some things that can be claimed for by both such as travel and telephone bills. Bells can provide some general guidance in the form of a leaflet or a bespoke list. Fill out our contact us form for more information.

Over the years we have developed a great relationship with Bell’s and we work in partnership to make sure our complicated payroll is completed correctly to the benefit of everyone involved. Loraine explains situations and solutions to us very clearly and we very much appreciate her support. I would highly recommend Bell’s to any company looking for a personal service that’s great value for money
