7 Good Reasons to Register as a Company Today


From protecting your personal assets to managing what you pay to the taxman, there are plenty of good reasons to register as a limited company. And in this article, we introduce you to our top 7.


1. Protect Your Personal Assets

When you register your new venture as a company, your personal finances will be independent of those of your business. So, if your business builds up debts it can’t pay back, your personal assets should be safe from the insolvency practitioner.


2. Pay Less to the Taxman

As a director of a limited company, you can take money from the company as dividends rather than a salary, which can be more tax efficient. Plus you can take advantage of a range of expense allowances, including for mileage if your company runs a commercial vehicle.


3. Gain Exclusive Use of Your Company Name

When you register as a company, you will need to give Companies House a unique company name. This will be yours for as long as your business remains in existence.

4. Attract Fresh Investment

Compared to a sole trader or a partnership, a limited company is better at attracting long-term investment. Shareholders accept that they may not see a return on their investment in the short-term. But, if a bank decides your business is performing badly it may suddenly demand repayment of the loan.


5. Build Your Reputation

Your decision to register as a limited company demonstrates that your business is going to stick around. For this reason, customers and suppliers should be more willing to trust you with their business.


6. Become a Serial Entrepreneur

Are you full of business ideas? Then why not register as a company and sell the business on when you get an attractive offer? It only costs £12 to register a company online with Companies House (and we’ll pay the fee for you if you choose one of our company formation packages).


7. Fill Your Pension Pot

As the company director, you can see to it that your business pays into your pension pot from your pre-tax profits.
