    Sarah Bradford considers whether in light of the changes to the off-payroll working rules operating through a personal service company is still worthwhile.

  • Spouses and civil partners: Employee or business partner?

    One of the best tax planning arrangements around is engaging other family members in one’s business, especially one's spouse or business partner.

    Lee Sharpe looks at the main issues when considering whether or not to engage one’s spouse or civil partner in one’s business, as a partner or as an employee.

    Alan Pink offers some pointers on the all-important choice of investment in a company.
