Investing through a limited company has become exponentially more popular over the last couple of years – but there are aspects of limited company investment that you’re normally not told.
In this episode we bring together our own experiences and observations to shed some light on:
- The higher costs associated with limited company lending
- The time you can expect an application to take (and some corrective action that might be needed)
- The extra steps you’ll need to take, compared with individual applications
- Some points to be aware of as a result of the market being so new
None of this is intended to put you off: just to encourage you not to rush blindly into something without getting the right advice, and give you some pointers for what to expect along the way.
