Any advantages in becoming a limited company

As an instructor I am a sole trader. Is there any tax advantages in becoming a limited company or does it make no difference.

Re: Any advantages in becoming a limited company

LTD companies have to pay corporation tax, you have to submit accounts from an accountant to companies house every year or face fines.

You would still be liable for income tax.

If you pay yourself too little for income tax purposes you may find it impossible to get a mortgage as the banks now require written evidence from HMRC for loan applications.

Thank you. Just wondered if it would benefit me to be limited instead of sole trader. Seems it isn’t.
