Limited Companies

As a limited company you will need to prepare annual accounts for filing at Companies House and HMRC.

The Company will be subject to Corporation Tax on its profits, and will have to submit a CT600 Self- Assessment Corporation Tax Return annually. You will also have to submit an Annual Return to Companies House showing the details of the Directors, Secretaries, and Shareholders of the company each year.

You may have to register for VAT if your turnover exceeds £85,000 in any given 12 month period, accounting for VAT on your sales and purchases and submitting monthly, quarterly or annual VAT returns to HMRC.

If you have employees and/or subcontractors, you will have to account for the tax on any payments made to them either through Pay As You Earn (PAYE) or the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS).

Your Company will need to have a Registered Office, we can also provide our address for this service.

All of these services are provided by the team at Emma Pickles Accountants, leaving you with time to concentrate on running a successful company.

Forming the Company

We offer a formation service, once you have decided on your proposed company name.

If it is available, we can form the company for you, providing you with all the statutory paperwork, Incorporation Certificate, Memorandum and Articles of Association, Share Certificates and Statutory Books. We can also register you for Corporation Tax, VAT and PAYE at the same time.


Not sure if you are “caught” by IR35, we would be happy to review your contracts and advise you on the best course of action.

All of these services can be taken care of by the team at Emma Pickles Accountants, leaving you free to concentrate on running a successful business.
