Reduce your accounting fees and still get the help you need

by Kobus Van den Bergh | Nov 20, 2017
  • As a contractor with a limited company, you’re probably already aware of a lot of your accounting duties and responsibilities. You shouldn’t have to do it all alone though. Our unique online accounting package has been designed for contractors who can handle a bit of their own admin. With it, you can save on accountancy fees while still having peace of mind that your statutory compliance requirements are being met.

    Balance your books, the easy way

    While it’s possible for you to do your own accounting, it’s not easy to keep track of all the HMRC and Companies House requirements and deadlines. This is especially true when you’re running your business.

    By hiring a reputable accountancy firm to ensure your numbers are crunched correctly, you can ensure you stay in HMRC’s good books and have the time to handle your business affairs. Your accounting partner will help ensure that all due taxes are paid and required reports are filed at HMRC and Companies House. In addition, they offer assistance with Self Assessment tax returns, ensuring that these are filed correctly and on time.

    When choosing an accounting service, you‘ll have to decide how comprehensive you want it to be. Face-to-face packages will be more expensive while online options can save on your monthly spend without compromising your tax position. We offer a range of accounting services, but in this article, we’re going to focus on our Basic Online Package.

    Why you’d want a basic online service

    By choosing a stripped down, online, accounting package, you can reduce the amount you spend on accounting fees, but still ensure your business is fully compliant. Our Basic Online Package is ideal for contractors who:

    • Are price-sensitive or just starting out
    • Are comfortable with using online applications and mobile apps
    • Have online access to their business banking (so that it can be linked to the online accounting software)
    • Are able to keep up with paperwork and not have to be chased for information
    • Are fine with performing basic accounting by following online guidance
    • Are content with receiving email support

    What you’ll get as part of our Basic Online Package

    Our Basic Online Package starts from only £66 (incl. VAT) per month and includes:

    • Limited company incorporation and registration
    • Sage One online accounting software that facilitates a live bank feed to import all your limited company’s business bank transactions
    • An online document portal which provides you with all the documentation and guidance you need
    • An initial telephonic consultation to help you start out
    • Periodic reviews to ensure you are on the right track
    • VAT returns (if your limited company is VAT registered)
    • Annual financial accounts and Corporation Tax returns
    • Monthly payroll submissions to HMRC
    • Email support
