Has anyone here used an online pension manager, like Nutmeg, for a private pension? By this I mean contributing funds straight from a ltd company tax free?
I've met two Independent Financial Advisors who manage pensions for ltd...
Updated 23 June 2016 - This got out of date so am doing a bit of rehash. I've added any new ones, taken off some that seem to have disappeared and given a nod to some of the Accountants that are actively giving good advice on the forums but don't seem to have been recommended by posters.
OK so it's not so short any more. This information has been compiled based on experience, and expert advice. In response to the numerous emails and PMs I get concerning the fluid and uncertain environment for working in Belgium, I have tried to summarise the issues and pitfalls,...
This place is going to get swamped very soon, so just to let you all know that you can post about the Public Sector and IR35 changes here:
Public Sector IR35
Any posts regarding PS IR35 will be moved there.
Here is a place for those 101's that people seem to forget/not know.
Try and make the title easily searchable.
This thread is stuff that we have learned over the years. But we expect people using this forum to do their own due dilligence - we point them in the right direction, it's for them...
Posters have been turning up indignant that agencies are demanding extra information from them mid-contract.
To which the answer is: suck it up. The Government has legislated that agencies have to collect information and pass it onto them.

How many more times....
a) It's about the journey, not the client and not why you are there
b) Go to the known (or anticipated) end date of your current gig.
c) Count back 24 months by the calendar.
d) If between those two dates you have spent less than 40% of your time at that...
Welcome to the Loans thread.
To date loan arrangements have been discussed in many threads on CUK, regularly appearing in the BN66 thread diluting that thread and losing the concentration of information to those associated only with loans and not with S58 FA2008. Its time that loans had its own...
I have asked my company (permie) for a copy of my references that they obtained from, previous employers prior to my comencing employment here. How ever they say that they are legally bound not to show me the references. Is this so?
Oops - wrong section - oh well.
I've just got my first contract (whooo) and was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. I've read some of the info on this site and I'm still unsure as to what would be the best course of action to set up a limited company or go with an umbrella organisation. Is it really that tough to...
Can you accountant bods list the ways money can be extracted from a closed company please.
Obviously this is son of IR35 related.
I'm aware of PAYE and the current dividend setup.
Any comments on use of CGT allowances (14k pa for 2 people?).
Any way to extract funds by creating...
Can anyone point me i the direction of a Business to Business contract I can copy. I'm looking for a contract which is way, way outside of IR35.
I've been reading in the General forum about the so called 'IR36' proposed in the Pre Budget Report.
I'm sure you all know what it says by now.
When IR35 was introduced, we had a consultation period and a further period of time during which the new law was being implemented. During this time...
I, for one, have had enough. I am sick to death of being persecuted by the treasury who change the rules almost daily in more and more desperate attempts to take money out of our pockets to pay for its own failings.
Time for action. The chancellor reckons that he could rake in an extra...
If I built up a business worth 300k and then went on to sell that business for that amount what tax's would I be liable for?
I am assuming CGT?
just filled in a tax return at the tax office about 5 mts ago .

I took out the final £6027 from my company in the last tax year before winding everything up.
In my Self Assessment I put this in box 10.15 (dividends and other qualifying distributions from UK companies). However Hector's wrote back to me saying he's moved it to box 1.8 (payments from P60/P45)....
I seem to remember reading that a shareholder can choose not to accept a dividend - if this is to happen, what paperwork needs to be done ? what are the rules ?
I am about to start my 1st contract after 16 years as a permie within IT. Nnoticed www.kbaccountancygroup.com/index2.html linked to Contractuk.com Never heard of them, then again never heard of most providing this service.
Can they be trusted?
Has anyone here had dealings with them?
I've recently taken the plunge and set up my Ltd co, and I'm hoping to transfer business to it from my brolly in the new year.
However, as this is my first time, I'm a little anxious about getting everything right and was hoping that some of the more seasoned Ltd co'ers could point me in the...
My accountant tells me that under no circumstances can I pay for training directly from my company because it is set up as a personal services company. Therefore I have to pay myself a dividend and pay the tax before I can use this money for a training course.
Actually it is slightly...
Having checked out as many of the facts myself as I can, it's looking like the rumours are true this time. Therefore I'm looking to break the contract.
I've spoke to Poppleton & Appleby, the Administrators, who tell me that it's unlikely they'll want me to continue as CSi Ltd are insolvent....
Anyone give me a quick low down on operating a directors loan account? Im now operating outside of IR35 and so need to extract money from my company to pay my bills etc. Is there a limit to how much you can draw on a directors loan?
I know at the end of the company year the loan will be...
I've been offered a job in Aus, and therefore need to wind up my company. However to earn a living between now and then I need to run the company and then wind it up.
I have built up some capital in this time and my accountants tell me that this can be taken as a capital disbursement...
The Government is to issue more "guidance" about Money Laundering this month.
The English Institute's interim guidance on ML says
How many people knew that to claim more expenses that you actually expend is potentially criminal?
It seems that the umbrella companies must report you to NCIS...
I've just started Contracting again following three years of 'secure' (ha!) permiehood. I am now considering taking a contract in Ireland (Republic of) for less than 6 months.
I read in IR publication 490 that 'special rules' apply to travel and accommodation expenses whilst working...
I've just registered my Ltd co, and am looking around to set up a business account.
However, I've had some trouble in the last couple of years, which I fear may throw a spanner in the works.
I've got a couple of CCJs and a few defaults registered against me, obviously this causes problems for...
