Setting up your own Personal Limited Company is ideal for those who want to buy assets (such as a company car), retain funds in the company or employ a staff member.
Unlike an Umbrella solution a Private Limited Company is fully owned and controlled by you. It allows you maximum control of your finances, wealth planning and can be very tax efficient.
All the paperwork and the compliance might seem daunting. However, at Contracting PLUS we look after everything; the admin, the paperwork, the accounts and the company set up. All you need to do is think about what you want the name of your company to be – we do the rest. Simple.
I can concentrate on my work knowing that you guys are there to help me with expenses, invoicing, follow-ups and tax returns in the most professional manner. I’d recommend your services every day of the week.

Good to Know
If you already have your own Personal Limited Company we can work with that. We can easily transfer all Revenue dealings to us to ensure it’s a pain free transfer for you.
When you have your own Personal Limited Company you’ll need a second person to act as Company Secretary. If you have no-one to ask then Contracting PLUS can be the Company Secretary for you.
The fee is payable every month as the cost covers the work involved in preparing the accounts and filing tax returns at the year-end the Umbrella Director is a better solution if you don’t need your own company as you only pay as you use the service).
After 2 full calendar months of no invoicing you receive a discount of 50% on the monthly fee until you start invoicing again – we keep the costs low when you’re not working to help your cash flow.
A further 25% discount is available when you opt to look after all the VAT, payroll, expenses and bookkeeping yourself (some conditions apply to make it a better service for you).
