Dividends v salary?

It is generally more tax efficient for shareholders to take a small salary with the remainder as dividends rather than receiving all their remuneration as salary. There are various factors to be considered in this regard, for example if your business carries out R&D this can have an impact, so advice should be sought.

As always, the key to successful tax planning is to seek advice as early as possible.
