The following paragraphs will breakdown the process of registering a limited company and the advantages that come hand in hand.

Why operate through a limited company?

As a contractor working through a limited company, there are a number of advantages for you to benefit from.

The biggest appeal of a limited company is limited liability. In a nutshell, limited liability means that you and your business are considered separate entities; you aren’t personally liable for the debts of the company. In contrast, if you were to operate as a sole trader, you would have unlimited liability and be personally responsible for any debt.

Limited companies are generally considered the most tax efficient way for contractors to operate. There are far more tax planning opportunities than compared to if you chose to operate as a sole trader or through an umbrella company.  Our fully qualified accountants will be able to explain these to you in more detail, so feel free to contact us to find out more.

Larger companies, particularly PLCs will only deal with limited companies. Therefore, if you are likely to work with a number of larger clients you’ll need to make sure that you have limited company status or you could find yourself missing out on some potentially lucrative work.
