Why Limited?

In general, a limited company is the best option for anybody who:

  • Earns over £25,000 per year, or £100 per day
  • Expects to contract longer-term, or is a professional contractor
  • Wants to maximise their take-home pay and doesn’t mind a bit of extra admin to achieve this
  • Wants to work for themselves, with complete control over their own finances

How Much Does it Cost?

The service costs just £105 + VAT, but this is completely free, if you are also appointing Dolan Accountancy as your accountants.

Don’t forget if you choose not to appoint us as your accountants, you can expense back the cost of your formation in your company accounts.

Registered Office and Directors’ Service Address

As a client of Dolan Accountancy, free of charge, we also offer you the option of using our address for your Registered Office and Directors’ Service Address. Choosing this option not only removes your personal address from Companies House, but also enables us to receive all of your official company post, making life much easier for you.
