Invest your company profits​

Business bank accounts pay close to zero interest these days. Learn about the right company investment structures and online platforms allowing you to invest in higher-yielding assets.

There is no point investing if you cannot reap the rewards. Whether it's ongoing passive income or a lump-sum amount, you will learn advanced methods for extracting your cash legally.

Invest in Property, Stocks & Bonds

Review of the best Online Platforms

Work with a specialised accountant

We know setting up your company for investing can be a pain which is why our accounting partners can make it easy for you after the end of the course.

Stay compliant

You must comply with HMRC and regulation rules when investing as an LTD company. The course shows you the actions you need to take to stay compliant and never miss a deadline.

Pay less taxes

Avoid (not evade) taxes legally. Learn which investments have a favourable tax treatment for companies, how to minimise taxes when selling or when taking an income from your investment company.

A powerful online community

You will join an online community of likeminded business owners who want to grow their wealth. This is a fantastic opportunity to discuss and learn from others.

Dear business owner,
 
I could never imagine my investing would generate enough income to cover all of my lifestyle expenses.
 
In 2010 I started working as a software engineer at an entry level. Right after the Great Financial Crisis, I knew nothing about money and accounting. Words like the “stock market” and “property investing” were causing fear and anxiety to me. “I better stay away”.
 
I would receive my employer’s salary and spend it all on things I enjoyed. But I remember myself being constantly worried:

Who pays for my future self?
How come some people enjoy life more than others?
Why are some clever people poor and dumber people rich?

I was constantly thinking about my money ‘issues’ when a friend convinced me I am skilled enough to start my own company. I was quite reluctant but I did. My limited company was doing well, offering technology services to clients. Invoices raised, money flew in, profits stacked up.

Taking a salary and dividends was the standard approach to enjoy some of the money. But what about the cash surplus after that? What happens with the funds remaining inside the company? These lazy employees are doing nothing for me and extracting them would cause a huge tax bill.
 
I talked to top industry accountants, lawyers and financial advisors. I spent hundreds of hours reading investing documents, HMRC rules and researching corporate investing platforms. 
 
Can my company invest its funds? What’s legal from an HMRC point of view? What can my company invest in? What’s my exit strategy? Through my action plan, I put my business cash to work.
 
Soon I knew more than some accountants did and started offering consulting services. I started a UK personal finance blog with over 10,000 monthly readers and a Company Hub page. I gave podcast interviews and made YouTube appearances to help others.
 
My life was changing.
 
In 2019, I made £40,000 by investing in stocks, bonds and UK residential property. To date, I have helped more than 250 business owners unlock their company profits and enjoy their new income streams.
 
And now it’s your turn…
 
I’m not sure where you are in life right now, but I’m guessing you’re in a time of transition – or preparing for one. Maybe you want to increase your income, take more hours off or improve your quality of life.
 
What’s your big idea?
 
Investing your company profits can be your ticket to extra profits and a better life. It can also serve as a great way to pass inheritance later on.
 
I built the Company Investing Academy with one purpose: I want every business owner to extract more value from their hard-earned profits. If you are in this boat, then this course is for you.

Why take this course if I can find an accountant​

I would not have created this course if I believed finding an accountant can get you there. I have talked to hundreds of business owners. Through my conversations and my own experiences as well I have made these 3 observations: 
 

1) Most accountants will often limit what their clients can achieve. They want to do things the easiest (for them) way while reducing their clients potential. “Just put more money into your pension” or “Take dividends and then invest personally” are typical responses that are not good enough. They want to do the bookkeeping – not grow wealth for their clients. Most probably, you have acknowledged this yourself too.

2) Most accountants will only spend 1 or 2 hours with you or otherwise charge thousands of pounds to explain the concepts. This is not only from my experience, but from people e-mailing me daily.

3) Limited company investing is way more than accounting. Although the right company structure is of paramount importance, the concept goes beyond that. Here are some topics that are extremely useful other than accounting:
 
  • Which investment platforms are best for company owners based on their experience/needs (passive buy & hold, index investing, gold, forex, margin loans, etc)
  • How to easily track your ongoing investments and tax obligations (step-by-step examples)
  • Different exit strategies 5-10 years down the line (only possible if you start on the right foot)
  • Property + HMO investing through an LTD company
  • How different assets are taxed when investing through an LTD (not just what the final tax bill is)
  • A discounted offer with our trusted accountants or how to choose one yourself
  • Being part of a community of like-minded business owners / investors to discuss ideas and strategies
  • Which bank accounts to (not) use
  • Pros and cons of Pensions vs LTD company investing and how to balance between the two to maximise profits as well as tax breaks
  • Useful resources such as videos, excel spreadsheets and reading material to succeed in investing
Don’t get me wrong. A good accountant is very important which is why we have our own accountants on board to help you get started. In case you want to go elsewhere this is fine too. In fact, we have created a section on what traits to look for in an investment accountant and how to find one yourself.
 
I just want to make clear that LTD company investing is way more than finding a great accountant.

Here's your course outline

The course consists of 3 pillars, all of which are essential to company investing and wealth management.

The Tax Pillar teaches you everything you need to know about tax and accounting. It helps you decide whether company investing is right for you, how it works and how to implement it using the most appropriate company structure. It also includes a Q&A session with a qualified accountant for you to ask questions. We also look at tax optimisation strategies to minimise taxes and stay on top of your obligations to HMRC.

The Investing Pillar is all about execution. You have decided company investing is right for you and you want to go from zero to having invested funds in a platform ASAP. It provides information for you to choose the best bank account and investing platform. It also covers Property buy-to-let and education on how to build a diversified portfolio that not only makes money but also lets you sleep well at night.

The “Enjoy your Money” Pillar is all about reaping the rewards of your efforts. It discusses different exit strategies with real-world examples. This is so that when the time comes you can keep what you earned and enjoy it / match your liabilities (i.e. kids university, fun years etc). It also covers a passive-income style of building wealth using a combination of LTD company investing and Pensions.

We believe the 3 Pillars are essential for you to make an educated decision on how to best handle your money.

We teach 8 Live Online sessions every Monday & Thursday at 7-8 pm.

Frequent Questions

No, no. Most online courses just email you a ton of videos to watch and expect you to figure things out on your own. This doesn’t work. Studying at home is great, studying alone is not. Our courses are all live, interactive, with direct feedback, and an amazing community. You can go at your own pace too, of course, but the live online immersion is what we recommend people take.

Everything is recorded and published the same day, so if you’re at work or your time zone doesn’t match up well with us, simply catch the replay and you’ll be up-to-date.

The sessions run every Monday and Thursday 7-8pm UK time.

If you have operated through a limited company before then you probably have some basic understanding already. Some basic knowledge of tax (i.e. what dividends, corporation tax are) is recommended but not essential.

Investing knowledge is not required. We will be talking about investing fundamentals and provide guidance but we cannot provide any financial advice.

Every session has a dedicated time slot for you to ask questions.

We are a team of both accountant and non-accountant experts. Having the right tax structure is important which is why an accountant will be there with you in one of the Tax Pillar sessions. We also focus on financial planning, exit strategies, and investing tools for limited companies.

Everything the course offers is essential for you to succeed in your investing journey.

We recommend you start considering the course if you’ve got a minimum of £20,000 to invest.

The course will give you everything you need to decide whether it’s worth taking the money out of your company and invest personally.

This is not an easy choice which is why we have dedicated an entire session to this question, backed by data.

Our goal is not to make you follow a certain path, but to help you make an educated decision on what’s best for you.

As long as you’ve got an internet connection and a laptop or a phone, you are good to go.
 
We use Zoom for the online video sessions and Telegram for chat to respect each other’s privacy.
