If you are self-employed, you are basically your own boss. This was the topic of my podcast last week. Check it out if it you haven’t had a chance to listen to it, or need a refresher

In this episode of ‘I Hate Numbers’ I talk about tax and your self-employed business. I dive deeper in this week’s podcast and look at the difference and add some numbers.

Sole trader vs limited companies

There are approximately 3.5 million sole traders and 1.9 million limited companies in the UK alone. It seems right to look at these two ways to ruin your self-employed business, partnerships get a look in.

Tax and Choice of Business Structure

“Death, taxes and childbirth! There’s never any convenient time for any of them.” – Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind.

You should not ignore tax when deciding which business structure. Tax is factor in your decision making.

Good to Know

Different business structures mean different tax consequences. The heavy lifting of reading the tax rules, how it works, how much and impact has bene done for you.

Being aware of how you are taxed, helps you plan for it, minimise it (legally of course) and not get caught out

What Next

Grab a coffee, make yourself comfortable, sit back and listen.
