    Stay a limited company or switch to self-employed? 15th Apr 18 at 8:50 PM
    I have been working as a limited company (one-man-band graphic designer) for 10 years, and after looking at the new rules for extra taxes on dividends, I'm wondering if it would be better for me financially (and less headache with filing accounts) to switch to self-employed?

    Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Is there a good resource online somewhere that shows the comparison? My accountant is elusive at the moment and really not great at explaining so I want to understand better for myself.

    Which benefits are you on?
    Unless I say otherwise 'you' means the general you not you specifically.

    Well you are posting on the Benefits and Tax Credits Board.

    You would be better asking for this to be moved to the Cutting Tax Board.
