    Just wondering if someone could offer some advice. As a Director of a company who is employed by that company to work for them, can they also invoice the company for work done outside of the employment role?

    For example, a person is a Director of a cleaning company, they are also employed by that company as a cleaner, so that means they get a wage. Can that person then also invoice the company for strategic planning or marketing as a consultant? Work which is outside of their role as an employee.

    Is something like that legal? Is it allowed in terms of tax and HMRC? Or is it risky and should be avoided?

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Yes you can.

    You would just need to declare these earning when you do your tax return.
