He / She offers pro-active business advices, which save you considerable time and money in the short and long run and guide your business to become a healthy, desirable, and successful organization. The earlier you hire, the quicker your business will be geared towards growth and success.

You could consider take a flexible or part-time FD, and you’ll be paying for just a few days a month. This will allow your business to benefit from professional expert knowledge and support, but at very little cost compared to that of a full-time FD. You could also consider take a project based FD. If your business is experiencing rapid growth, or introducing a new accounting system or financial controls, it is wise to hire a FD. Your FD will ensure your finances are aligned with your growth strategy and improve business process and tighten controls.

· Company directors
· Business employ staff
· Value added tax (VAT)
· Corporation tax
· Annual accounts

Value Added Tax (VAT)

You should notify HM Revenue & Customs if your taxable supplies are above the VAT registration threshold. If your turnover is below this threshold you can choose to register the business voluntarily. There are advantages to this, particularly if you are selling mainly to VAT-registered businesses, pleasecontact usfor more details...
Businesses are required to keep a record of their VAT transactions. The records must be retained for a minimum of six years. You also need to obtain and keep VAT invoices, as these are your authority to claim back VAT on supplies made to you.

Limited Company

The limited company is a separate legal entity from its owners and all the company’s liabilities are the responsibility of the company, not that of the directors and shareholders. Choosing to set up and operate your business as a private limited company is a popular way of trading. Read more...

Requirements of Limited Companies

· Company must be registered at Companies House;
· Annual accounts must be filed at Companies House;
· Annual Return must be completed each year to update Companies House with basic details relating to the company. Also requires a small annual fee;
· HMRC must be informed if the Company has any profits or taxable income in a Company year;
· Company must complete an annual HMRC corporation tax return and pay the due taxes within nine months of the company year end each year.

Tax Matters of Limited Companies

When starting a business, you need to be aware of the many regulations that you must comply with. To ensure you are operating within the law, there are a number of procedures you must follow when setting up a business.
· Corporation tax
Companies are required to carry out self-assessment for corporation tax, calculating themselves the amount of tax payable. This could be completed by filling out a company tax return form CT600 accompanied by accounts and computations. Corporation tax must be paid within nine months and one day from the end of the financial year.
· Dividends
In many small companies, the owners are also the directors, who may be paid dividends as well as salary. Dividends are payments made out of accumulated company profits after payment of corporation tax. A dividend carries with it a 10% to be paid. A higher rate taxpayer will have to pay further, pleasecontact usfor more details...
· VAT
If you make taxable supplies above the VAT registration threshold you become a taxable person and are legally required to register for VAT. Businesses are required to complete and submit to HMRC a VAT return. This must be submitted within a month of the end of the VAT accounting period.

Sole Trader

A sole trader is the simplest way to run a business. The legal and accounting requirements are not as costly or time-consuming as those of business registered as a limited company. However, you are personally liable and accountable for all your businesses debts. Read more...

Requirements of Sole Trader

· You need to register as self-employed with HM Revenue & Customs by the end of the third month of self-employment;
· You have to make an annual self assessment tax return to HM Revenue & Customs;
· You must also keep records showing your business income and expenses;
· You should have a separate business bank account. This will make it easier for you to do your tax return, and keep track of how much money your business actually has.

Tax Matters of Sole Trader

· Income tax
Unlike being an employee, you won’t be taxed on your income. Instead you will be allowed to deduct business expenses and be taxed on the profit you have made. As a self-employed person, you must complete a self assessment tax return every year. The deadline for returning your self-assessment tax return is 31 October for paper forms and 31 January for online forms. Through the self-assessment tax return scheme, income tax is paid in two instalments during the year (on 31 January and 31 July).
· NI contributions
Most self-employed people pay Class 2 and Class 4 NI contributions. Class 2 NI contributions are flat-rate payments made on a weekly basis. This ensures you are still able to access the National Health Service and puts a small contribution into your state pension pot if you pay no other NI. If the earnings from the business are very low, you may be entitled to make an application for a Small Earnings Exemption from NICs. Pleasecontact usfor more details...

Transfer Sole Trader to Limited Company

Once your turnover reaches a certain point, you may benefit by incorporating as a limited company as you can then pay yourself through a mixture of salary (subject to Class 1 NI contributions, which are higher than for a self-employed person) and dividends (not subject to NI contributions). Furthermore, profits will be taxed through corporation tax, rather than income tax; for sole traders all profit is taxed through income tax. This means that businesses retaining earnings in the business, for example to provide additional working capital, are likely to pay less tax in total if they are incorporated. Pleasecontact usto consult how this could benefit to you.

Partnership

A partnership is a good legal status to consider if your business will involve two or more people owning it together. In a partnership, two or more people share the risks, costs and responsibilities of being in business. Read more...
Like a sole trader, a partnership has no separate legal identity. Each partner is personally responsible for any debts that the business runs up.

Requirements of Partnership

· Each partner needs to register as self-employed;
· The partnership itself and each individual partner must make annual self-assessment returns to HM Revenue & Customs
· The partnership must keep records showing business income and expenses;
Class 2 NI contributions are flat-rate payments made on a weekly basis. This ensures you are still able to access the National Health Service and puts a small contribution into your state pension pot if you pay no other NI. If the earnings from the business are very low, you may be entitled to make an application for a Small Earnings Exemption from NICs.
