Limited companies made simple in our no-nonsense guide

Starting a limited company can be a great option for a freelancer, contractor or small business owner. This guide teaches you about limited company formation and gives you expert hints and tips on how to run a business.

If you’re confused about the potential benefits and implications of starting a limited company, this guide is for you. You’ll see how a limited company can save you time and money, plus you’ll find out how to register.

Included with our starting a limited company guide is a handy calendar displaying all the important dates you’ll have to remember, such as when to file your annual returns and when to send your end of year accounts to HMRC.  Why not print this calendar off and stick it up in your office to keep an eye on deadlines?
