    That wasn't the point I was making. Anyway, never mind. It seems your accountant doesn't want to take on more work which is odd but I guess not all want to provide a full service. They may be too busy with other clients to take on the work but it's a shame they won't even bill you for a few consultancy hours and then you do the actual doing.

    The lower tax options for withdrawing the funds from your company are pension or dividends. It depends on how soon you need the cash and whether you have sufficient profit after tax to cover dividends. There's loads of discussion on these fora and in the guides mentioned earlier. If you have a specific question rather than a general one it'll be easier for help to be provided.

    He's not exactly expensive.

    Although... that's maybe a bit too cheap....

    And don't forget to claim back your expenses incurred. Things like home office costs, travel to the client, subsistence, etc.
