How to enter Directors' salary on sage if they are self employed?


Hello,

My both directors are self-employed.††I†am a bit confused as †I am not sure how to deal with the Diretors' salary if they are self employed. Please, could anyone tell me how should I show their salary in a sage? Can I simply enter into journals Dr Directors salaries and Cr bank account? Or should I Dr freelance directors' service as for freelance salaries i have a different nominal code? † Many thanks for your answers.

If they really are self-employed and not employees of the company, then they would/should not be receiving a salary from the company biggrin

(a journal/bank payment†is ok, btw - but don't use the "directors salaries" code, if they really are self-employed)

Thank you. I will use a different nominal code for freelance salaries.†

The Self-employed take 'Drawings' not salaries, and they should be posted to The Balance Sheet - I would suggest nominal code 2301 or similar. Post a Bank Payment to 2301, vat code 9.

The OP indicated that these were directors of a Ltd Co, so 'Drawings' are not the answer here.

I assume that the directors are invoicing the co for their services, so should be handled just like any other supplier. If you already have a nominal for 'freelance directors' services', that would be a good place to post them.

Thank you for the replies.

Yes I have created a nominal code 7012 for freelance fees (not only directors but all freelancing fees in general) with VAT code T9, as i though it would be the best option. I suppose it is more overheads rather than†drawings. Please correct me if I am not right††...

Many thanks

Ginta

If the directors are genuinely working on a self-employed basis, then code their invoices to the company to your new 7012 freelance code. They are not drawings, as Ian/Brewsie has already said, because its a limited company biggrin


(The directors may take drawings from their own self-employed earnings, but these should go through the (entirely separate) accounts for their sole-trade/self-employment and have nothing to do with the company accounts)

Don't forget this will require related party disclosure on the final accounts. Also has this set up been correctly tax planned? The directors, assuming they are shareholders also may be better off taking salary and dividends.

You came on here looking for help and was given it which was to get an accountant, maybe you should have got one before setting up the Company.

Also you should have a read back through your posts and see for yourself who comes across as stupid and a bit childish.†

Afternoon Joanne, Doug, Casu

fear not, cavalry's here (at last). Sorry folks have a £2 billion turnover company that I need to look after that services multi trillion turnover entities that people like Joanne used to work for before she decided to use her talents to help a selected number of smaller businesses who show her the respect that she deserves... Oh but wait, we're the lowest of the low and couldn't possibly be making decisions at that sort of level....

Also really glad to know that what we do is really easy and our services can be replaced by a simple internet search. God only knows what I was doing with my head buried in all those huge books for so many years. All obviously just a waste of my time when I could have asked some random person on a site for business owners and they would have given me the exact answers that I needed.... Silly me.

Unfortunately Nick won't be joining in the conversation going forwards...

Well I missed this one!!!! REad it just a minute ago on accounting web, I actually thought they were quite polite! The thing that no one said was the fact that sage 50 V12 is so old, it should be in the bin by now!

Anyway he will pay the price later on when he submits his accounts, the fines will be hefty and the accountants bill will be even bigger!

Bloody cheek saying the bookkeepers are at the bottom of the pile in the financial sector! I for one count myself to be just a bit more than a mere 'bookkeeper' he probably thinks we just input a few numbers all day and press a few buttons! If only he knew what we all really did...... well getting clients like him out of the crap for one!

Wish I had joined in earlier!
