Thank you so much for the effort your putting in, I will be happy to wait to get the right advice

Sorry, I am back.   Can you please answer my query then we can move forward.

Hi- I hadn't intended that the existing company has any shares in the new company, but if this would be an efficient tax route then yes
Then the existing company would have to lend money to your daughters.  Providing they are not directors of the existing company this would present no problem.

But I believe that a loan would need to be repaid before the close of the financial year, otherwise Interest would be applicable

my eldest daughters, the 100% share holder of the existing co is also the only director

Sorry ...* daughter

Then the loan would have to be repaid within 9 months of the end of the company's accounting period to avoid horrendous taxation problems.

I came to you looking for professional advise on tax efficient routes ....your answer "horrendous taxation problems" is of no help!

I was merely warning you of the possible taxation difficulties which could be faced by a director in receipt of loand fom their company.
