Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able help you with your question.
Are you already registered with HMRC as self employed?
Then there is no change to the manner in which you currently operate. You will, of course, be aware that as a director, you are an employee per se and any emoluments drawn from the company must be made under PAYE arrangements.
I do hope that you find my reply of assistance.
My personal opinion is that you are safer working through a limited company. Th company being, a separate legal entity, places a buffer between you and your business should you become involved in a personal liability claim.
The choice is entirely up to you. Company Articles are so widely written these days to permit any legal activity. If you operate multiple companies you have to factor in the administrative effort involved. If operated as a company group there may be taxation advantages as losses can be set against surpluses throughout the group. The easiest way is simply to use one company.
Please be so kind as to rate me before you leave the Just Answer site.
