Extracting profits out ofrepparttar company as dividends rather than salary means that there will be no "net relevant earnings" and therefore pension contributions can't be made. Butrepparttar 125129 advent of stakeholder pension plans has meant that contributions up to œ3,600 per year can be made withoutrepparttar 125130 need for any earnings.

It might be tax advantageous for an unincorporated business that owns many cars not to incorporate because if these cars have some private use there will be benefits in kind taxed onrepparttar 125137 users. These are generally higher thanrepparttar 125138 straight apportionment between private and business for all car running costs inrepparttar 125139 case of sole traders.

The conclusion is that there can be considerable tax savings waitingrepparttar 125140 sole trader who decides to go downrepparttar 125141 road to incorporation. But, one needs to proceed with caution and careful planning. And don't forgetrepparttar 125142 biggest advantage of incorporation, which is Protection from Personal Liability.
