    What is a limited company?

    Small businesses have a choice of business structure in the UK, most commonly a sole trader, partnership, or limited company.

    A limited company is a private company, and its owner is a separate legal entity. This limited liability status protects the business owner from personal costs and legal action should their company fall on hard times.

    Other advantages of limited company status are business credibility, tax advantages, dividends, investment opportunities, and business loans.

    However, being a company director comes with bigger administrative, financial, and legal obligations. For example, a limited company must pay Corporation Tax, file annual returns, and keep Companies House up to speed with its details. This extra responsibility motivates many company directors to seek professional accounting support.

    How can accountants help limited companies?

    Well, first and foremost, limited company accountants can save you hours a week so you can concentrate on your business, take a well-earned coffee break, or be with your family. Second, it’s a huge weight off your mind to know that your company is meeting its obligations and won’t be penalised for non-compliance.

    Beyond saving you from sleepless nights, having a limited company accountant can actually save your company money. With someone experienced and qualified on the case, your accounting records will become streamlined and opportunities for efficiency will leap off the page.

    A qualified accountant can also identify tax reliefs to ensure you are not paying over the odds – both from your company bank account and your own pocket.

    Frequently asked questions about limited company accountants

    Take a look below for some additional information about limited company accounting.

    Does a limited company have to file their accounts with Companies House?

    Yes. Under UK company law, all limited companies must file their annual accounts, i.e. profit and loss statement, balance sheet and cash flow statement, with Companies House. You have until nine months after the end of your company’s financial year to file statutory accounts.

    What is better? A limited company or a sole trader business?

    Choosing the right business structure all depends on your current needs and future plans.

    You can register with HMRC and start a business as a sole trader in 5 minutes, which is ideal for smaller ventures and sole proprietors. If your turnover starts to reach the £40k/£50k mark, registering as a limited company will probably be better for tax efficiency.

    Then there’s the matter of limited liability status, which might be preferable if you’re an ambitious entrepreneur or start-up with a high level of borrowing. If you are unsure, it’s best to speak to a good accountant like the experts at Guildford Accounting, who can help you find what’s right for you.
