Ltd company UTR VS Individual UTR

Evening all,

Very quick and easy question. This year is the first time we've pulled dividends out of our limted company. We have a company UTR however is it true that we will need an individual UTR in order to fill out a Self Assess' form. Would we have a UTR if we've gone through PAYE previously?

Also, do you need to complete a SA form if you only take £2000 dividends, the tax free allowance, does this need to be declared via SA?

We are just taking ownership of the accounts after a partner buy out (who previously ran them) and trying to string everything together. Bookeeping is interesting, but complicated! I'm sure this is a very simple one.

This is a forum for professional bookkeepers and Accountants, sorry we cannot assist business owners. Accounting and tax are much more complicated than bookkeeping.

You could try the usual business forums of course, although beware of potential duff advice bearing in mind you don't know  folks qualifications.

Your question does seem to indicate that you are  doing thiings sub optimally and may be even getting ahead of yourself with a timing issue.  Why are you not paying for some professional advice?

Thoughts are my own/not to be regarded as official advice,which should be sought from a suitably qualified Accountant.

You should check out answers with reference to the legal position

OP has seen your response.

Agree with you. Big chunk towards Accountants fee could've been saved in tax already. Probably loads more.
