Q?

Is a Limited Company or Umbrella Company best for me?

A.

The decision is up to you but generally an Umbrella Company is simpler than working through your own Limited Company, but you will take home less money from your contract.

As a general guide if you take home more than £25,000 per annum, or if you take on a contract for more than three months then the Limited Company would be the best route.
Switching is easier than you think!

a) Form a Limited Company
b) Open a Limited Company Bank Account
c) Appoint Offshore Accountants to take over

Q?

What is IR35 and how may this affect me?

A.

This tax law tries to differentiate between genuine contractors and “disguised employees”.

Providing you have a contract that is outside of IR35 and your working practices reflect your a standard Limited Company and not an employee you will be fine. Let Offshore Accountants review this for you.

Worse case scenario is you pay tax as if you were employed.
