    apart from GAAR makes some avoidance illegal as well. It's no longer as clear cut.

    We recommend £791 salary to our clients with 1 director on the payroll for 2020/21. It is most tax efficient and yes it will require a small payment of Employer's NIC after the end of the tax year.

    Indeed. We are all expected to pay our "fair" share....

    Indeed. But accountants really are supposed to get the pennies right, so to say something is optimum when it isn't is not great advertising.

    For me it's obvious which way to go because I have employees so we have to make those HMRC / PAYE payments anyway. So might as well grab that extra £50 for my wife and me. Combine it and we can have a nice evening out next March, if any of the places we want to go are still in business after coronavirus.

Hence why it wasn't an obvious choice and we debated internally. In the end we feltb slightly bigger risk of clients being annoyed if they felt we'd taken the lazy option and cost them ~£50, than being annoyed about having to make an extra payment that we'd highlight to them in ~13 months time.
    If only your clients were smart enough to hold two thoughts in their mind at once, you could offer them an "easiest" option that costs £50 and a "cheapest" option that saves them £50 but makes them make an extra payment. And let them decide which they like.

    This business consulting advice has been offered at no charge, to give your company an idea of the services WIB Business Consulting can offer. However, if you believe WIB Business Consulting even exists, you are too gullible to be our client.

    We did (and still do) that with 2 employee companies (eg H&W) and the employment allowance. Quite often when we give clients a choice the response is along the lines of "just tell me what's best". People active on this forum will be skewed towards the "I take an interest and want to understand" end of the market. Many aren't interested and consider that they pay us to weigh up these things and tell them what's best to do. Of course that applies mainly when it's something with just £50 at stake than something much more significant.
