Limited Company

The Limited Company option is the most common option undertaken by skilled/qualified freelance contractors.

Owning and operating a Limited company allows contractors to be in complete control of their business affairs. It can provide the most tax efficient way of managing income and particularly suits individuals deeming themselves to be ‘career contractors’. The limited liability structure of the company also affords protection to the contractor against the company’s debts if it were ever to become insolvent.

This option, however, is not beneficial to all. Fencross is able to asses each individual and advise whether the limited option would be best for you.
