  • Glad to find this thread. I'm a freelancer who's worked as a PAYE contractor through an umbrella for years but after a break from working, decided I should set up a limited company. Partly to maintain a salary and claim training as expenses in between contracts.

    Wish I hadn't. Really don't like the grey areas and flexibility in tax arrangements.

    Is the ethical answer simply to pay exactly as much salary as you actually need, claim all valid expenses, make pension contributions, and avoid dividends as far as is possible?

    They are as grey as you make them.

    My accountants are fairly conservative, which is exactly what I want them to be.

    Other a accountants be like "yeah, expense your cat food".
