Accountants for contractors and freelancers

If you're new to contracting or freelancing you may need guidance on the best structure for your business. This could be either as a sole trader, partnership or limited company. This is particularly important where you want to remain as tax efficient as possible. We have a dedicated team of specialist accountants for contractors and freelancers. We're ex HM Revenue and belong to the UK's number one accountancy and tax professional bodies. So we're ideally placed to provide you with timely and valuable advice.

If you decide to trade as a limited company you'll have various obligations with Companies House and HM Revenue. There can be hefty fines and penalties for mistakes or non-compliance. This is why we work alongside you to ensure you always keep abreast of any deadlines. Because we always deliver timely advice and guidance this ensures our contractor and freelance clients stay on track.

'Cannot recommend Richard and Lesley more highly. They have provided me prompt and professional services for my limited company. I had previously used a cheaper accounting company, but quickly switched to the Friendly Accountants after experiencing poor customer service. I am very happy with the service I receive now and I think it's very good value for money. They always go above and beyond in any request I send them. Thank you very much Richard and Lesley!'
