Which expenses can be claimed as a contractor working through a limited company?
If you’re a contractor working through your own limited company and are outside IR35 then life is very simple. HM Revenue and Customs rules state that expenses can be claimed provided they are wholly and exclusively for the purposes of your business. This means you can claim things like: company formation fees, accountancy fees, business travel and accommodation, postage, stationery, telephone calls, employer’s N.I. contributions, subscriptions, insurance, contributions to an executive pension plan, business entertainment etc.
Remember! You must be able to provide evidence that you actually incurred the expenses if HM Revenue and Customs ever ask you; this is usually achieved by keeping receipts.
At SFL, we have a team of qualified and experienced accountants, auditors and tax professionals. Who keep fully up to date with all the relevant legislation to make your job easier and to ensure the charity complies with all of its statutory requirements.
We have a team of qualified accountants who provide services on solicitors accountancy. We offer advice on company incorporation to preparing for and managing The Solicitors Regulation Authority Audit.
Directors of the companies are personally responsible for sending the companies annual return to the Registrar of Companies. Late filing penalties would be payable if these are not submitted on time. We help our clients remove this burden from their shoulders and make sure everything is in order.
Self assessment and Personal Tax
If you are self employed, a director or sole trader you have to fill in the self assessment tax return and send it to HMRC in time otherwise you are charged heavy penalties which can add insult to injury in the current recession. Let us take care of it while you have peace of mind.
Where the client has opted to work as a sole trader or he has income from more than one source, HMRC requires the tax payer to register for self assessment and pay tax accordingly. Our unique expertise offers both self assessment compliance and advice. This will include preparation of sole trader annual accounts establishing the income tax liability after claiming all available tax reliefs. In addition to this, we also provide compliance and advisory services to the following areas
