Contractors

Designed for busy, tech savvy professionals who want the convenience of cloud based accounting services and the personal touch of a local practice. Our cost effective package saves you the time and stress of dealing with complex accounting and tax issues, while providing individual tax planning and advice that helps you keep more of the income you earn from your clients.

As the government increasingly targets the contractor sector, you need accountants who keep on top of changing legislation and can give specialist advice tailored to you.

IR35 compliance

Our expertise helps you navigate the IR35 minefield. We help you manage risk with a specialist contract review and protection against tax investigations costs.

Switching from umbrella

We can help you weigh up switching from an umbrella to personal service company - and if it's right for you we'll help set everything up.

Personal touch

You get the personal touch and rounded experience of a local practice - a fully qualified Chartered Accountant giving you individually tailored advice.

IR35 contract review

IR35 is a specialist topic which requires experience and an understanding of employment case law to truly understand and assess. If you're engagement with a client is "inside IR35" then your personal service company will need to make a payment equivalent (after expenses) to the income tax and national insurance due if you were an employee of your client.

Getting an expert review of the contracts you have with your clients is essential to avoid what can be a large unexpected tax bill. We provide a written report highlighting areas of concern and explain why the contract does or does not meet the legislative requirements. You can then make an informed decision about what to do.

Umbrella Company Review

If you're currently working via an umbrella company, but thinking about switching to a personal service company we can help you make an informed decision.

Making the switch means you have a greater level of control over your business and its financial affairs - as well as advantages in how your income is taxed. But does also introduce additional statutory and financial obligations such as submitting annual accounts to Companies House and Corporation Tax Returns to HMRC.

After you've weighed everything up, if you think its worth switching we'll help set everything up and take care of your ongoing accounting and tax obligations.

Tax Investigation Cover

HMRC is carrying out more tax enquiries and compliance checks than ever before - especially in the Contractor sector. If this happens to you, you will need to prove that HMRC's suspicions are unfounded. You'll have to defend probing questions about your employment status (or other issues) and enquiries can drag on for several months. Without tax investigation cover, professional fees can come to several thousands of pounds.

We don't want you to have to worry about this, so in the event of an HMRC enquiry or inspection:

  • We represent your case with HMRC, saving you the hassle, without any additional cost to you.
  • If the case is complex, in particular because of challenges to your employment status, we have free access to specialist tax advisers so that you have the best possible defense.
  • If matters progress further, you won't be charged for most professional costs in defending you.

The amount of tax involved in a dispute around your employment status can be very material. This service ensures that you'll never have to concede to HMRC's demands because of financial pressures around the cost of defending yourself.

Prices

Our prices are always fixed in advance - you'll never receive a surprise bill from us, just a pre-agreed monthly subscription. As a high tech practice we make use of software and apps to keep our prices low- you just need to provide us with the details we need to connect your company bank accounts to our automated feeds, send us your time-sheets, and scan in or snap any receipts and invoices. We'll take care of everything from there - dealing with your bookkeeping and annual compliance issues. We're also there for you through the year to give any tax advice you need.
