The ADVANTAGES and DISADVANTAGES of setting up a private Limited company. What are the benefits of opening an Ltd company when starting a new business and how does having a Limited company compare vs being a sole trader?

I have been running Ltd companies for over 10 years and in this video, I share with you the real-world advantages and disadvantages of Ltd companies.

Advantages of Private Limited Company:

• Limited Liability (Personal and Business Finances Separate)
• Professional Image
• Name Protection
• Potential Tax Savings
• Basic Salary + Dividends (Link to Directors Salary 2020/2021 Below)
• National Insurance Avoidance
• Pension Contributions are Tax Deductible
• Income Can Be Spread Over Multiple Years
• Easier to Sell
• Only Costs £12 - www.gov.uk/set-up-limited-com...

Disadvantages of Private Limited Company:

• More Complex Accounting / Administration Requirements
• Higher Accountancy Costs
• Annual Accounts
• Annual Corporation Tax Return
• Annual Confirmation Statement (£13)
• Payroll and RTI
• Directors Details & Company Financials Available for Public Viewing
• Self-assessment Mandatory for Directors

How to Pay Yourself as a Ltd Company - Directors Salary 2020/2021:

Are you thinking about setting up an ltd business? What are you thoughts on sole trader vs limited company? Let me know in the comments!

Very clear and succinct video. Kudos. Would be great if you could make a video on a Sole Trader vs starting a limited company. For example in which situations you are better off having one or the other and if you earn 50 - 70k per year how much better off would you be with a limited company rather than sole Trader after tax and all expenses. Keep up the good work 👍 Just subscribed
Great video Darren! I like your straightforward and to the point style. It would be great if you could go into a bit of detail about the trademark bit for your business, and how much risk is there from legal trolls registering the trademark first and then suing you for it. Thanks!

Amazing video, A friend of mine referred me to a financial adviser sometime ago and we got talking about investment and money. I started investing with $120k and in the first 2 months , my portfolio was reading $274,800. Crazy right!, I decided to reinvest my profit and gets more interesting. For over a year we have been working together making consistent profit just bought my second home 2 weeks ago and care for my family.

Hi, brilliant video as always. I have a minor question about the disadvantages. Is it the case that if a director only has PAYE income from the company, they don’t have to register for SA? I understand that HMRC used to insist that all directions had to register for SA but have relaxed their policy. Can you advise?

Great video - would be great to see a video on the paperwork a small business director will need to do i.e. annual returns, tax etc

Do you have advantages like on deducting payments for equipment (let s say you do photography) from the taxable amounts? Or can you do that as a sole trader as well?

Any advice for hiring your first few staff? How would that affect the national insurance avoidance?

As a tradesman I find limited companies work if you have employees and supply goods but if you're just supplying your own labour then sole trader works way better.
Informed, balanced and succinct. Much appreciated 👍
