Hi everyone, I'm new to contracting (and this forum) after taking voluntary redundancy and as always the way for me, there is extra confusion to get my head round.
The main question I have is in relation how to set up - go limited or through an umbrella. I realise there are many posts already in relation to this but my main concern is what is the best option considering that I am expecting a baby and will be due in November 2013.
My master plan was to do contracting up to October and then be off on maternity leave from November for at least 9 months.
Would it still be worthwhile to set up as a limited company now or should I use an umbrella company and then set up limited after I return from maternity leave?
Any guidance would be much appreciated.
