    Before I begin, let me clarify - I'm not doing anything illegal or attempting to launder money (although if you know of anyway I can evade extortionate taxes, that would be a bonus!).

    I need to be anonymous for other reasons, and I only need to be anonymous to the person sending this money. I'm not stealing or doing anything immoral.. I just can't let them know my name for other reasons. I'll be accepting £3-5k per month, via PayPal. I understand I can set up an anonymous PayPal account, but since I'll be depositing this to my bank every month, I'm pretty sure I'll need to withdraw the funds to my business bank account under a limited company - otherwise the tax man would get suspicious as to how I'm acquiring large amounts of money each month. This isn't a problem. But what is a problem, is that my 'clients' could easily do a companies house search on the trading name of their invoice, and it would show my name as a director.

    How can I prevent my own name from being accessible?

    Okay, upon further research, I think I've found what I'm looking for. I think I need a nominee director and shareholder service for my limited company, which keeps the company's director and shareholders anonymous. Almost like private whois info, I believe. I can get this for about £300. This should do the job for now but if anyone has any better ideas please let me know.
