Transition Limited Company (TLC) or Basic Ltd.

This service is being withdrawn as of  Sept 1999 as a PSC is likely to only be relevant for high earning consultants/contractors operating outside of IR35.

Your Limited company provided free of any set up costs with a business bank account fast!

The Transition Company Is a simple “BASIC LIMITED COMPANY” which provides FAST TRANSITION for new contractors and contractors relocating to the UK or those transitioning their career from permanent to contract work, to give them the flexibility they need. It’s new and legal and completely logical!

You still need to appoint an approved accountancy practice, but the company is already sitting there ready for you. You just need appointing as a Director and given your shareholding and then open up your business bank account in the companies name with your name for authorisations.

The basic simplicity of the company set up means that you pay lower accountancy fees but do not need detailed tax planning and if you have moved from abroad can claim relocation costs back through company expenses.

Claim your flights and accommodation and subsistence expenses back (aprox. 8K over 1 or 2 tax years)! With low admin. costs for new contractors! You must have a business bank account in the name of the company and this can be supplied free to you within 1 week when in many cases it takes 6 weeks – All payments are monthly against the invoice you send for your services. Contact us!

Excellent expense allowance for overseas contractors

If you are from overseas and have not yet started work you may be able to claim many extra expenses through the relocation and living away from home allowance to reduce your tax bill.

The BITE and its Associate company offer the opportunity to be in a position to help minimise the tax you pay through legitimate relocation and living away from home expense claims in an employment program that is unaffected by any IR35 or MSC legislation and any changes to visa rules for example.

These expenses include

  • The cost of your flight over to the UK
  • One return flight home per year
  • Cost of accommodation (rent) whilst living in the UK
  • £50 worth of food a week
  • BITE relocation support
    *All expenses need to be receipted legitimate business expenses

Simply, it’s a Limited company that employs new contractors as full PAYE employees. It provides contractors with all the benefits of a traditional umbrella and most of a PSC without the initial responsibility of setting up their own company, yet increases net income (take home pay) by over 20%.It can then be “transitioned” to provide further income benefits. Once the contractor is comfortable with contracting, the company can be transitioned into a PSC, with all the traditional benefits of contracting through a limited company, and more.

Initial benefits include a reduced monthly tax bill and a complete relocation package: flights, accommodation, rent and food for up to 2 years plus weekly travel costs, to the value of £8000. These benefits can be increased by simple “Transition” into a PSC but with the added benefit of a full relocation package. Your TLC (or Basic Ltd company) maximises both convenience and net income.
