More Take Home Pay

In addition to unlimited accounting support, our all-inclusive accounting service provides expert tax planning advice to help maximise your revenue by improving tax efficiency.

When working as a locum, you would usually have the choice to work as a sole trader or through your own limited company. There’s less responsibility and obligation when working as a sole trader as non-limited companies are regulated and monitored less rigorously than limited companies. But there are many advantages of working through your own limited company when compared with personal ownership.

Limited companies benefit from significant advantages when it comes to remuneration and tax efficiency. As a locum operating through a limited company, you can pay yourself through a combination of salary and dividends. Tax rates on dividends are lower than income tax so with the right structuring, tax savings can be made. Gorilla Accounting are experts in leveraging these tax-efficiencies to increase take home pay for locums.

Limited companies also benefit from limited liability. This means that your personal assets such as your home, investments and car should be protected from creditors if your business encounters financial difficulties and incurs debt. The limited company is treated as a separate legal entity so your personal assets are protected.

Every locum’s circumstances are unique and we can advise you on whether incorporating is right for you based on your situation. If you go limited, we can incorporate your business for £100 +VAT and we can usually have your limited company set up the very same day.

Technology-Focused Accounting

At Gorilla Accounting, we’re big believers in making technology work to the advantage of our clients and ourselves.
