Company Formation Services London UK
Trading or contracting through your own Limited company is the most tax efficient way of working meaning that you can take home more of your hard-earned money. Much like all good things in life, however, there is a little extra paperwork to do as a limited company director although the rewards are much greater.
You might be surprised at just how little extra work there actually is managing your own Limited company. Other than sending a few cheques here and there to HM Revenue and Customs (your dedicated Birchtree Sullivan Accountant* will help you understand how much to pay), sending out invoices, and filling in a spreadsheet there really isn’t that much more. Contractor clients say to us it typically takes them about 15 minutes a month.
How do I form my Limited company?
Once you’ve made the decision to contract/trade under your own limited company, the next step is to form your company. The whole process only takes 5 minutes on our dedicated company formation website, following which your company will usually be formed on the same day (Monday to Friday). All you need is a company name and a credit card to complete the transaction.
To form your limited company please call one of our client liaison managers on, 0207 183 9448
Once you have formed a limited company, you will receive all the necessary Limited company documentation, along with an application for free business banking, VAT and PAYE registration details. During the on-line formation process you will be asked for several pieces of information:
This is you. The Director controls invoicing, the company bank account and decides on how much to pay themselves, which is made up of a combination of salary and dividends.
Dividends are distributed to the shareholder(s) of the company, which is how you will take most of your income.
We can also advise you on registered & service offices – you may be registered at home or a formal business address, however, Birchtree Sullivan offer a service through which we cater your business need of having registered & service office address leaving you free to run your business!
