Fair point, but you'd still have to pay income tax and NI (both employers' and employees!) on anything the Company then pays out to you. You might be able to save NI by structuring it as share dividend, but bear in mind that having a limited company involves certain administrative requirements.

But Gary is right - if you are making a few quid, it's well worth speaking to an accountant to make sure you are making use of your legitimate tax allowances.
