Using a personal mobile phone account for business

    I currently have a personal mobile phone account (not contract, only a 30-day commitment thing). As it's essential for my business, it makes sense to start paying my mobile phone bill through my business bank account (Ltd company).

    However, does my mobile phone account need to be in the name of my company for me to do this or can I just switch the direct debit over to pay out of the business account? Does it matter as far as HMRC and the law is concerned?

    Can anyone offer any help?

    On the advice of my accountant, I continued with the same contract that I had before I set my company up (also a limited co) and then claim the fees as an expense each month. The only thing I changed was that the bills are now addressed to me, c/o my company.

    Pretty straightforward but PM me if you want any further info.
