- Thinking of leaving the STW jobless club
Got one job for definite and another possible. The definite job is 4months contracting followed by a switch to perm.
Is it worth setting up a Ltd company for 4 months?
I reckon I have lots of start up expenses I could put through during that period such as suits and car services so it might be nice and tax efficient rather than using an umbrella company.Posted 8 years agobigsiMember

Just realised this means I won’t get paid for the week off when I prepare and clear up after the Big Bike Bash. That’s another £10K it will cost me, gulp.
Tell you what WCA, you work that week, I’ll prepare and clear up after BBB and go 50/50 on the 10K you would have lost by not being at work.
That £5k is more than 4 months wages to me 🙁 😉Posted 8 years agonuttysquirrelSubscriber
WCA – you don’t need to set up a limited company – try http://www.paymatters.co.uk and put loads of expenses against tax to make it worth it your while!!! It’s not as good as a limited company overall but for that period of time, it wouldn’t be worth paying the insurance etc. etc. Paymatters provide all that as part of it but unless you put expenses against it, it won’t be much better than PAYE. Obviously there are other companies but we like them because they’re legal (tons aren’t!) and efficient.Posted 8 years agoGary_MMember
erm… what job in IT pays 10K a week? lol.
Well I’m pretty sure he doesn’t earn anywhere near that amount, but it does seem to be yet another one of the guys ‘look at me I earn lots’ posts.Posted 8 years ago
Of course he’ll advise us all that the 10k thing was a joke but he likes us all to know he earns a good salary. How a fella so seemingly obsessed with displaying his wealth coped with redundancy is beyond me. I find it all rather vulgar and middle class.
Sorry, didn’t mean to be vulgar about the money. Short term contracts seem to pay quite well though I will lose the week before the BBB and probably the week after as they don’t like to pay for part weeks. Not bragging and not bothered about peoples perceptions (too much).
nuttysquirrel – Thanks, I will check them out.
Anyone who does want to help with the set up and clear up of the BBB please contact me via the website. Can’t promise free entry or anything but there may be some spare beer from the beer festival that will need disposing of 😉Posted 8 years ago0303062650Member
imo, if you earn ‘good’ money – well done and i sincerely hope you continue to do so!
if you don’t earn what you would perceive as ‘good’ money, study more, work harder and progress your career – otherwise keep shtum!
all imo of course 😉
I earn next to nothing, but, its my business and I don’t comment! 😉Posted 8 years ago
