If you are simply looking to set up a limited company and looking for assistance from an expert, Gorilla can help.  

As accounting experts, we are more than qualified to assist you with setting up your limited company.  

There are many benefits to operating through a limited company. These include:

  • Tax Efficiency –  Typically, operating through your own limited company will see your take home pay increase.  Use our calculator above to get a quick guesstimate of your expected take home pay.

  • Expenses – Ability to claim a wide array of expenses which ultimately can be used for corporation tax, again, resulting in more take home pay for you. For information on what expenses you can claim, visit our Guide to Expenses page.

  • Protection – Limited liability means your personal assets (home, car, investments) should be protected in the event the Company becomes insolvent.

  • Freedom – Running your own limited company allows you to have a greater work life balance.

  • Flexibility – Your limited company can be used for all types of contracts – short/fixed/inside and outside of IR35.
