Affordable fixed accountant fees for self-employed
At Accounts and Legal our services are designed and priced to reflect the fact that consultants and freelancers do not generally have the same volume of transactions or paperwork as other businesses. However, good tax advice particular in respect of IR35 is equally important as with other businesses.
Strategy is also important for self employed clients - many consultants and freelancers aspire to grow their businesses and employ staff. We have the in-house expertise to create the right growth strategy and also offer legal and employment law advice. Our business consultancy services we can help you every step of the way, from company formation and taking on your first employee, to obtaining funding and maintaining or creating a plan to grow your business.
Online accounts for freelancers, contractors and consultants
Accounts and Legal combine traditional accounting methods with up to date, easy to use and understand accounting software, meaning that freelancers and consultants will benefit from online accountants services at the same time as enjoying the quality and expertise of a named qualified accountant for each individual business. As Xero certified accountants, we can also make sure your invoice and payment processing is as efficient as possible.
VAT returns service and advice
Tax advantages encourage the self employed to register voluntarily for VAT before it is mandatory but the subsequent increase in accounting obligations and costs can be detrimental.
To manage this we have tailored packages which provide cloud bookkeeping services and efficient VAT solutions to give consultants everything needed to be tax efficient whilst keeping their accounting costs to a minimum.
