Using a Company to Save Tax

By Dr Nick Braun PhD

Using a company could save you over 10,000 in tax every year... and possibly much more.

Why? Because a company paying tax at 19% will have a lot more money left to reinvest than a sole trader or partnership paying tax at 42% or 47%.

However, company owners also have to pay income tax when they extract money from their companies and the recent increase in dividend tax rates means that a company will not deliver worthwhile tax savings in every situation.

The 19th edition of Using a Company to Save Tax was published in November 2018 and is completely up to date for the current tax year.

It tells you everything you need to know about the benefits and drawbacks of using a company.

The guide is essential reading for:

 Excellent. Well worth the time invested.
This book is excellent. Written in plain English without any technical jargon, it is easy to read and understand. It contains plenty of tax saving tips and tables to give you an idea of the tax implications of operating your business as a sole trader or a limited company shareholder.

Divided into 38 Chapters, each of which could be read in isolation, meant that some of the ideas were repeated over and over again,which is not necessarily a bad bad thing. I would highly recommend it, especially for anyone looking to start a new business and not sure whether to trade as a Limited Company or a Sole Trader.
 Valuable Resource

Clear introduction to eliciting potential Company tax savings. Illustrative style promotes understanding. Use of tables provides further clarity and enhances explanations. References to recent and upcoming tax rates/changes were found to be useful and may facilitate future tax planning strategies. In summary, book is viewed as a valuable resource.
 Strongly recommended.
Excellent Book. Strongly recommended. Especially if you are looking to decide if you are a sole trader or a limited company. It does a detailed comparison between both, looking at multiple different scenarios and situations. Very good.

Two recent tax changes will have a big impact on company owners in the years ahead.

First, the corporation tax rate was reduced from 20% to 19% in April 2017 and will be reduced to 17% in April 2020. This is great news for company owners who want to grow their businesses because they will get to keep more of their profit.

Second, the tax payable on dividend income increased significantly on 6 April 2016. This is bad news for company owners who extract most of the profit from their businesses.

The guide weighs up these two big tax changes and helps you decide whether using a company is still worthwhile. It contains numerous tables showing the potential tax savings at different profit levels.

Although dividend tax has increased, the guide also shows how company owners can control how much income they withdraw from their companies and avoid the higher tax rates that kick in when income exceeds 46,350, 50,000, 100,000 or 150,000. Company owners may also find it easier to split their income with other family members.

What Information is Contained in the Guide?

Like all Taxcafe guides Using a Company to Save Tax is written in Plain English and contains numerous practical examples and tax-planning tips. Topics covered include:

The guide also contains many useful tables which show the exact tax savings enjoyed by company owners at every profit level. These tables take account of ALL taxes: income tax, corporation tax, national insurance etc.
