Why do you need a freelancer accountant?
Running your own business can be confusing, especially if you have no prior experience. You need to focus on exploring the right opportunities and not get bogged down with the tax complexities that comes from flexible working
As a sole trader, you are your business and it is your responsibility to ensure you comply with HMRC regulations, including submitting a self-assessment tax return, ensuring your business accounts and records are correct and tracking your income, expenses and insurance. It can be a lot to get your head around and this is where a specialist accountant can ease this pressure, allowing you to focus on growing your business.
How we help new freelancers
Into Freelancing will take care of your accounting and tax tasks for a monthly fee of £35 + VAT.
We are on hand to provide the support that you need to ensure you comply with HMRC regulations. We will explain the ins and outs of what each process means and what needs to be complete for this to be achieved. By registering with our sole trader service, we will keep close to your business activity meaning nothing will be missed.
Our specialist freelancer accountants work with new freelancers every day. You’ll have a direct line to your own Personal Accountant who’ll guide you through the entire process, including setting up a bank account and getting insured. Once everything’s up and running, they’ll be there to support you whenever you need them.
With Into Freelancing, there are no set-up fees, tie-in periods or leaving fees – we believe in earning customer loyalty, not enforcing it!
