Income & Tax Treatment

Our full equity partners are treated as self-employed individuals for tax purposes, which is the most advantageous income tax treatment available in the UK. They are paid net of fees, costs and taxes directly into their personal bank accounts on a quarterly basis.

Our consultants typically operate via personal services companies. Clearlake invoices the relevant client and passes on (typically) 80% of the fees once received to each consultant’s personal services company.
