Owner Managed Business

Four ways small and medium sized businesses can get financial support

Our latest OMB survey found that nine out of ten business owners are worried about business costs. Here are four ways small and medium sized businesses can get financial support:

Will your director and shareholder dividends be hit by the NIC increase?

Shareholder directors of owner-managed businesses normally take a minimum salary and any balance of remuneration as dividends (distribution of company profits).

The Employment Allowance has risen from £4,000 to £5,000. This means that businesses and charities whose NIC liabilities were under £100,000 will be able to claim up to £5,000 off their employer National Insurance Contributions (NICs) bill.
