Director Salary

Hi All,


There are 4 directors who are also shareholders of a limited company. However none of them want to pay themselves as employees through PAYE but instead as self employed contractors. My understanding is that the directors have to be employees of the company and thus have to be paid via PAYE and the contracting option does not exist.

Can someone please confirm this for me or advise accordingly.

Many thanks guys...
