I'm thinking of going Ltd in the next few years, not to save tax or anything, but just to 'officialize' (probably not a word) my business in my mind and also in others thoughts. I will hopefully be trying to get a few more commercial contracts also, and I think that being Ltd is seen as more trustworthy by other companies etc.
At the moment I am still running my business as a part time thing, because I have to look after the kids before and after school, as my missus works full time in a school. This means that I am not made of money, and do my own accounting etc. I realise that getting an accountant to deal with the transition would be sensible as it means transferring all the assets of the business that I now own into the company, payroll for me as director and a few other things I probably don't know about.
Now, being from Yorkshire, I'm a tight wad, so I am wondering if anyone can give me an insight into how much I should expect to pay and accountant to take care of this? I will be contacting some soon, but I just want to be armed with an idea of the costs involved.
