    In December our 8 year old business changed entity from partnership to limited. We have 8 months of self employed income through that this financial year. Since December we are now both 50/50 directors in the new LTD company. We have been told we haven’t been put on payroll as we used our allowance through the partnership, so will take dividends through the limited company until April 1st.

    Are we employees or self employed?

    Thank you!

    You are employees.

    As far as I am aware to qualify you would need to have submitted RTI payroll information to HMRC at the end of February.
