'We have always avoided the temptation to use that, because we felt it was slightly artificial any way,' he conceded.
Finally, there are implications for corporation tax too. 'If you and I are in partnership we pay 45% tax, but if you decide to do that purely to avoid corporation tax, you had the ability to transfer some of those profits to a limited company that was a partner within the partnership. That would take corporation tax off' he explained.
'If you have created a limited company just to divert profits, then that should be hit. I’d be supportive of that,' Scott added.
