    We could give you a long winded, hand holding response, however if you search you see these questions come up more often than NLYUK's knickers so for brevity and as our time is just as valuable as yours we say ask your accountant as that is what you pay them for.

    If you have already asked your accountant and they are giving you the wrong information we can help, if you have already asked your accountant but they didn't give you the answer you wanted we can help (to a degree)

    Who do you think would be best to speak to first? It's likely when speaking to your accountant they will ask the relevant information first and probably educate on other elements of the question you are asking as well. We just get drip fed an attempt an answer based on that.
    *This is what I do in those circumstances, though YMMV so talk to your accountant*

    I've asked a bunch of stuff from fellow contractors, including the kind of question above. I'll always get advice from my accountant in the end to verify, though no harm in asking online first, right?

    But if you are asking from fellow contractors you need to give full information as what you will be told may be completely wrong.

    These questions do come up time and time again, agreed. Though using the google site search function, a good percentage of the top ranking posts invite the OP to use the Google site search function!!!

    You are aware that google search is now fully personalised and the results you see are not (necessarily) the results other people will see..
