Cut your tax bill by 9%
National Insurance is charged on profits of a sole-trader or partnership. At the moment, the charge is 0% below £7,225, 9% between £7,225 and £42,475 and 2% over £42,475.
But, if you trade your business as a Limited Company you can take your profit as dividends which do not attract a National insurance Charge. If you make £40,000 profit, the saving is £2,949.75 a year and if you are in business for 20 years this could be worth £58,995.
