Why do you need a contractor accountant?
If your goal is to earn in excess of £30k as a contractor, it’s likely there’ll be tax benefits by providing your services through a Limited Company.
These benefits come from the way your company is set up and run, and how you take income from it. Getting expert advice will ensure you reap these benefits from the outset.
There are also a number of tax laws specific to contracting such as ‘IR35‘. These affect the ways that you are able to set up and run your business, so it’s key that you work with a contractor accounting specialist who will always keep you up to date and compliant.
How we help new contractors
Intouch will take care of all your Limited Company’s accounting and tax tasks for a monthly fee of £105 + VAT.
Our specialist Contractor Accountants work with new contractors every day. You’ll have a direct line to your own Personal Accountant who’ll guide you through the entire process, from incorporating your company to 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.
You can use our address as your registered address, which gives you a professional edge and keeps your home address out of the public domain.
With Intouch, there are no set-up fees, tie-in periods or leaving fees – we believe in earning customer loyalty, not enforcing it!

Expert IR35 Guidance
IR35 is tax legislation introduced to combat tax avoidance; trading as a Limited Company and working outside of IR35 can result in higher take-home pay than other alternatives, which is why so many contractors prefer to work this way. However, IR35 legislation is complex and set to change in April 2020 so you need an accounting partner with the expertise and support services to guide you.
At Intouch all of our unique IR35 support services provide all the clarity, protection and support that contractors need, at no extra cost. Read more here.
