The Advantages Of Having A Contractor Accountant

Accountants are an extremely useful source of knowledge and advice for contractors, especially as most people are not experts when it comes to finances.

Many people might think that having a contractor accountant is an unaffordable luxury, or that they are just there to keep the taxman happy. An accountant can do much more than this and can even save you time and money with their in-depth knowledge, as well as relieving you of the added stress of worrying about your taxes.

Why do I need a contractor accountant?

There are many reasons why you may benefit from having a contractor accountant:

  • To make sure that forms are filled in correctly, and on time. Most people will not be 100% confident when it comes to the financial side of their company and if your finances are not dealt with properly then you could get into trouble with HM Revenue and Customs.

If you fill out a document incorrectly, the best case scenario is that HMRC will send it back to be completed properly, which could result in you being late with submitting it. If you do miss a deadline, you could face a fine.

A contractor accountant can give you the reassurance that your tax return and any other documents will not only be filled out correctly, but will also be done in time.

  • Will save you valuable time. As someone who is not an expert at accounting, this could potentially take up quite a bit of your time.

Spending valuable time on the accounting side of your business means less time spent working on generating more income, which is extremely counter-productive.

A contractor accountant will be able to deal with your finances more efficiently, saving you the time to concentrate on your business and earn money.

  • Tax planning. This is perhaps one the biggest advantages of having an accountant.

A good contractor accountant will be able to legally minimise your tax bill, therefore saving you money, which means that the service will more than likely ‘pay for itself’. You’ll also be able to take advantage of the ever-changing tax laws, which will mean paying as little tax as legally possible.

  • Help you to develop your business. A good accountant will want you to succeed, as it is a reflection on them as much as it is a reflection on you!

They will be able to offer you great advice when it comes to growing your business, helping you to make the right financial decisions early on, to ensure the development of your company.

Having a good limited company accountant will give you the time to concentrate on your business, as well as giving you the opportunity to have personal financial advice throughout not only the year, but also throughout your life as a contractor.
