So you’ve decided to go out on your own. You may be a marketing / IT / Events / PR / Human Resources consultant. You’ve just landed your first client – check! It’s a big client too – even better.

Your startup is now at a stage where there’s money in the bank and / or a regular income stream to start paying yourself. Brilliant! So just how do you go about paying yourself?
