If you are looking at saving yourself tax, you also have to make sure that you are also looking at benefits i.e. making sure you are claiming everything you are entitled to.
One of the key benefits is child benefit. For years, a benefit (£80ish a month per child) that was given by default for anybody with kids, now restricted somewhat by the current government.
I’ll leave the politics to somebody else’s blog (safe to say, it is a very bizarre implementation of restricting a benefit) but if you are concerned that you are going to or have lost your child benefit then email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are a director of a limited company then the chances are, some simple planning will ensure that you keep your child benefit its worth almost £1,000 each year for each child!
