Limited Company

Trading through a Limited company is one of the most common routes to trade.

It is separate legally from yourself as an individual so gives you more peace of mind compared to trading as a sole trader/ self-employed.

As a sole trader all debts are yours personally but as a Limited company all debts incurred through the course of business belong to your Limited company.


Profits your company makes after tax is available for the shareholders to take out as dividends.

These dividends are then subject to personal tax It is common for Directors to have a small salary and take the rest of their income out as dividends.

Commonly asked questions

Should I go Limited?

This will very much depend on your personal circumstances and importantly the level of profits that you have.

Do I have legal protection?

A Limited company is a legal entity in its own right separate from yourself as an individual. This gives you separate legal protection in that company debts are debts owed by your company and not you personally. As a sole trader all business debts are yours personally.

Is it more complicated?

There is more work and admin involved but appointing an accountant will ensure the majority of this is taken care of so you can concentrate on running your own business.

Do I need to run payroll?

We would suggest yes if you have no other sources of payroll to ensure you use up your tax free personal allowance.
