Why benefits and remuneration planning are crucial
While there are many tax-free benefits for directors like mobile phones, business trip mileage and some types of loans, there are also often limitations, and some benefits can create an unknown income tax liability.
For example, some types of medical insurance are not exempt, and you can only claim a portion of some cash purchases. Picking the right benefits is a matter of understanding the options available to you, which is where we come in.
Most remuneration practices have a tax liability, but there are various ways of paying yourself to reduce that liability. For example, you can adjust the ratio of PAYE and dividends with expenses to offset any income increase.
Directors' loans, insurance, vehicle leases and dental care are all potential options, and we'll help you understand the best options.
