Forming a limited company
If you are self-employed you may want to consider forming a limited company. A limited company can be an effective way to shelter profits, especially if immediate access to them is not required.
Profits paid out as salaries, dividends or bonuses are often liable to the top tax rates, whereas profits kept in the company will be taxed at 19%.
Funds retained by the company can be used to buy assets or provide for pensions, both of which can be eligible for tax relief.
