    Share buy back

    Just reading how share buy backs, used by the like of Apple, can be more tax efficient than dividends. That being the case, how long will it be before some chancer dreams up a myco ltd scheme attempting to use the same mechanism?

      Aha. At an over inflated price, and therefore reducing corp tax!

        That’s the kind of thinking I’d expect from a London Project Manager Now Tax Dodging in Switzerland.

                Aha! So you're as stupid as London Project Manager Now Tax Dodging in Switzerland! Although saving grace, you found the answer yourself as to why it doesn't work.

                  That's a little harsh.
                  From the very first thought I was sure it wouldn't work. I was merely intrigued as to why.

                    The basics of it is that you don't actually extract any money when the company buys back the shares... it just increases the value of the shares, you still need to sell them onto to someone else... which just isn't available as an option in any legal reasonable way to a 1 or 2 (in case of spouses) person contractor LTD as a means of distributing profit... and even if it was... the share buyback itself would do nothing as you own 100% of the shares anyway and their value is directly 1 to 1 value to net assets in company.
