Hopefully i am in the right pace and may be able to get some form of clarification on this!
I started work for a LTD company who specialise in home improvements on an employed basis through PAYE back in October 2019, since then the company has encountered some financial difficulty resulting in £120,000 of debt and quite a few of us not been paid since November to date.
Around 3 weeks ago the company has taken on investors who are working towards making the company turn a profit and become successful, they have re-structured the company but not invested any money as they believe that we can work our way out of the debt through better management which is great if possible.
I had a meeting with the new investors last week who told me that in order to make the best of the company they will need to change the company from LTD to a LLP (limited liability partnership) of which myself amongst others would be a member, i will still take a salary paid on a monthly basis, but, i will need to become self employed to do so.
Does anyone know if being self employed as part of an LLP differs in anyway from being normally self employed in regards to acquiring a mortgage? I know from past experience that usually as somebody who self employed you would need around two years tax returns.
Any other information in regards to how been self employed under an LLP could effect me would also be very much appreciated.
If you could explain this in as simple terms as possible that would also be great
Thanks very much.
