Make Sure You Are Claiming Tax Relief on Every Allowable Expense
You can save a lot of money by claiming all the permissible expenses. Make sure you also claim any expenses you personally incurred that were “wholly, exclusively and necessarily” incurred so you could carry out your duties. Some examples of these expenses include professional subscriptions, accommodation costs and mileage you paid for out of your own pocket. By claiming these personal expenses, you will be able to extract profits from your company without paying taxes, which will save you a lot of money in the long run.
However, there is a slight problem here. Figuring out which expenses are allowed is not always simple and straightforward. Some might be quite clear, but some might be ambiguous. You could claim an ineligible expense and end up underpaying your taxes, which is never a good idea. On the flip side, you could overlook lots of expenses you didn’t know were allowable and end up overpaying on your taxes, which is even worse.
Access Tax and Accounting can help you by making sure you are claiming tax relief on all allowable expenses, so you don’t have to stress over overpaying or underpaying your taxes. We’ll make sure you’ll be paying as little as legally possible on your taxes, which will lead to a fortune in savings over the long term.
Know the Tax Position of Your Company and Keep It Up to Date
After setting your director’s fee at the right level, recognising your company’s expenses and claiming any personal expenses on behalf of the business, you will be able to calculate whether your company is profitable and how much profit it has made at any point.
You will then need to take into account corporation tax (and minimal PAYE) and VAT to determine how much profit your company has made after taxes. Net profit, as it is called, is the maximum amount a company can pay out as dividends, making it the highest income you can draw from the company besides the director’s fee. Paying out even one penny over this amount is illegal.
Now, calculating this figure can get complicated. You will spend more time on it than you should, when you could be generating more business and money. ATA can help you calculate the profitability of your company, ensuring full transparency and accuracy. You won’t have to worry over making a mistake and maybe committing an offence accidentally, and you’ll also save a lot of time.
Know How Much You Can Draw as Dividends from the Company
Drawing dividends from your company is not without its own slew of tax implications. The key here is knowing how much you can draw to be as tax efficient as possible because, remember, you don’t have to convert all the company’s profits into dividends. You can draw the amount you need to fund your lifestyle or choose the amount that will ensure you don’t break the higher rate tax threshold.
Access Tax and Accounting will work with you to come up with the best possible solution so you can withdraw the money you need while paying as little as possible in taxes.
Flat Rate VAT
- Is your turnover below £150,000 per year?
- Are your expenses low when calculated as a proportion of turnover?
- Do you work for VAT-registered clients and don’t make zero-rated or exempt supplies?
Then Flat Rate VAT can save you thousands of pounds per year.
While there are plenty of accountants who don’t even discuss this with their clients, at ATA our goal is to make you wealthier, which means we will do everything legally possible to save you money. And from our point of view, if the above conditions are met, implementing Flat Rate VAT is the best choice.
