new rules on companies??

    I'm registering as self-employed for the first time. Although I've been working freelance for many years, i took voluntary redundancy from my full-time employment and now have the opportunity to work completely freelance.

    I'm a visual artist, and also freelance as a writer and speaker on art, a researcher, and an event manager. I do already have a limited company - it was set up a while back as a prerequisite of applying for funds for a auto paint gauge film project, and is now dormant. i have been reading the entries about being freelance versus being employed through a limited company, and heard that the rules have changed on this (IR35 etc, etc).

    Is it anyone's opinion that, for earnings that are typically going to be between £20k and £30k, it's at all worth it going through the company route? I know the Companies House / Corporation Tax paperwork already, but imagine it will get more onerous if i start using the company again, and more intensively than i was doing before (i.e., paying myself through it)...

    any little pearls of wisdom from anyone? apologies if this question is posted all the time, but I had an inkling that the situation may have changed with the new tax year.
