Why did u set up a ltd co?

I set up Ltd because my Accountant showed me it would be tax effective and it separates buisiness from personal

Hi David,

I'm glad you've found the forum useful, many other members have been benefitted by the knowledge and experience of fellow cleaners.

Well done on getting your business going again, EL insurance is becomming increasingly expensive and difficult to obtain.  The fact that you don't legally have to have it with only 2 employee's shows that you are committed to working professionally.

We look forward to your comments in some of the topics, and don't be shy to start a new topic yourself!
