Thing is, of all the freelancers I know (which is pretty much the entire UK TV industry- there aren't many of us), I could count on a single hand the number of us that are sole traders. Everyone else is a limitted company, paying themself minimum wage "plus dividends", and "employing" their parter as a "secretary". They regularly get audited by the tax man. Panic ensues. Those few of us in my situation generally regard the rest as immoral tax-dodging *******s. Sure, they may have two houses, three cars, and half a million in the bank..... But I can sleep at night knowing that I'm an honest, hard-working git.
