    But thanks for sharing your thoughts...
    The accountant can and will do the payroll as contractor accountants give you a package that includes that.

    It would be quicker if he set stuff up himself in the first instance. Yes you can do the research over what to pick but the bank will want to deal with him first as the earner not you.

    Plus he is the one who needs to speak to the accountant first to decide what shareholding if any and what position you should have due to the fact you also work.

    Hmm...maybe, maybe not.

    I set up my ex's company and ran the books for him. I told the accountant what to do and my ex signed whatever I told him to. As soon as we split he wound the company up and went to a brolly.

    Ahh I see your ex wasn't a mature adult.

    My husband and I work as a team, generally, so it makes sense to continue that with this business. It is not actually his decision as the 'earner' it is our decision as we will both have positions within the company and be share holders. I am not going to go into details about our family / finances, but my business / career will have to be on the back burner a little for this, so actually I do get a say!

    And if accountants do bookkeeping, payroll etc they charge you for this, believe it or not. I am more than capable of doing this, so will be doing so and saving the family/team/business money. I don't see why this is so controversial.

    All I asked is do I need to set up the Ltd co or the bank account first...

    Don't worry, people like to leap to conclusions. It's more interesting than spellchecking their bosses work.

    Ltd Co first, bank second

    If you get a freeagent accountant it doesn't take any time at all. So little that the vast majority of contractors do it themselves. Takes a couple of minutes every other week or so.

    And if accountants do bookkeeping, payroll etc they charge you for this, believe it or not. I am more than capable of doing this, so will be doing so and saving the family/team/business money. I don't see why this is so controversial.
    You also pay an accountant to keep up with changes in legislation, to know which to open first and many other things that you don't see straight off the bat but all go towards getting a good service for your money that you cannot provide. Not having an accountant is likely to cost you money in the long run.

    Don't forget VAT registration - consider new FRS category for 'standard' IT contractors vs standard VAT as a result of recent(ish) changes.
