Aren't there any other matters to consider in deciding whether to incorporate or not?

Higher administration costs to comply with company law, payroll and bookkeeping is one factor. Another issue is pension planning. 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 128176 advent of stakeholder pension plans has meant that contributions up to œ3,600 per year can be made withoutrepparttar 128177 need for any earnings. If a person does not wish to transfer funds in existing plans into stakeholder because of high charges, there is a way out:repparttar 128178 best net relevant earnings (i.e. salary) in five consecutive years can be used for making contributions forrepparttar 128179 next five years, even if there were no salaries inrepparttar 128180 remainder four years. It is comforting to know that entitlement to basic state pension is not affected by taking a salary fromrepparttar 128181 company atrepparttar 128182 level of a person's personal allowances i.e. œ4,615.

Furthermore, an individual may decide not to bother with pension plans and instead invest in ISA. Often, these can be more efficient than pensions but that's besiderepparttar 128183 scope of this article. If that option is taken, no salary is necessary.

Another factor is business motoring. 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 128184 users. These are generally higher thanrepparttar 128185 straight apportionment between private and business for all car running costs inrepparttar 128186 case of sole traders.

The conclusion is that there can be considerable tax savings waitingrepparttar 128187 sole trader who decides to go downrepparttar 128188 road to incorporation. But, one needs to proceed with caution and careful planning. And don't forgetrepparttar 128189 biggest advantage of incorporation, which is Protection from Personal Liability.

"Getting On Page One Is Easy...Getting The Sale Is The Hard Part."

Do all of that, and you have a fighting chance.

If you can differentiate your product as unique, develop a website that targets only those people who would be interested in that product, and then construct pages that clearly demonstrate to SEsrepparttar quality ofrepparttar 128175 content, I can assure you that your page(s) will rank very high.

You won't be on page one or two for every search for a product that is similar to yours. But, if your targeted prospect uses your specific keywords for your niche product, your chances of being on page one or two are very, very good.

And, it doesn't matter whether there are nine hundred or nine million pages out there, with similar products!

Now comesrepparttar 128176 really hard part...

Next time you punch in any set of search words or phrases and then followrepparttar 128177 links torepparttar 128178 sites on page one of your favorite SE, critically assess each page you view.

Do you "buy" fromrepparttar 128179 first page you view? I doubt it - that would be very rare. Especially if you had my recent experience - I clicked on number one and got back a 404 Page Not Found! Sheesh, can you believe that (a problem withrepparttar 128180 SE's housekeeping, perhaps)?

Anyways, I persevered and finally got to what I wanted waaaay down inrepparttar 128181 list. Maybe my search term should have been more specific? Whatever...I had to look through a few sites before I got to one that was talking to *me*.

That's crucial.

When you walk into a store, you expectrepparttar 128182 sales help to talk to you, and to answer your needs and wants. You would expect no less from any website that is trying to sell you its particular product or service.

In fact, you'd probably want more! And that's what you've got to deliver to your own prospects.

If you're good with words, you can construct your own sales copy. In fact, you should construct your sales letter before doing anything about a website page.

If not, hire a professional to do it for you. When you're satisfied with that, only then should you construct your web page(s).

If you do that, you have half a chance of actually gettingrepparttar 128183 sale when your prospect finds your link on page one or two!

Now...if you don't have a niche product or service, then you'd better get one from some-one else or develop one yourself.

But, just rememberrepparttar 128184 five points above when you've got your niche product and your sales copy ready.
