Are you getting what you deserve from your contractor accountant?

As a busy contractor you need an accounting service that can seamlessly manage your accounts, whilst keeping an eye open for opportunities for you to get more from your company. Maximising your take home pay is probably one of the main reasons you decided to go Limited, and so the supplier you’ve entrusted to manage your accounts should always be there for you, ensuring that the service you receive is second to none.

Is your current accountant letting you down?

If you recognise any of the following in  your current accountant, it’’s a good idea to shop around:

  • You speak to someone different each time when trying to discuss your accounts
  • You get generic answers that aren’t tailored to your circumstances
  • You’re provided with confusing or misleading information
  • You’re paying a premium rate for a substandard service
  • You get charged for hidden extras
  • Your documents to HMRC or Companies House aren’t provided on time
  • You feel that you’re managing your accountant, rather than them managing your accounts


Your trusted contractor accountant should help you free up your time to do what you do best,  not take up more of your time by making you worry about your accounts.

Are all opportunities being explored?

A good accountant should always be helping you maximise the opportunities that are available to you, keeping your best interests at the forefront of everything they do. From HMRC’S upcoming changes in the ways travel and subsistence claims will affect you, to what you can do to ensure your expenses are genuine and compliant, your accountant should not only be managing your day to day accounts but also your future wellbeing.
