Accounting is an essential requirement for any Contractor, but it can be a complicated area. Not only does accounting require the careful management and lodging of financial records, but it also needs the insight to be able to stay legally compliant and avoid rule breaking and penalties.
As such, utilising a Contractor Specialist Accountant such as FW Accounting can be very useful, providing businesses with an efficient, effective and compliant way to ensure their books are correct.
The UK recession has seen an increasing number of contractors attempt to handle the administration themselves, instead of having to pay for an accountancy service provider to assist them. However, there has never been a more important time to have qualified and knowledgeable support on board. New legislation on RTI (Real Time Information) or even the proposed amendments to the BET (Business Entity Test) suggested to be in the pipeline from HMRC, mean that turning to a specialised contractor accountant isn’t so much beneficial, it’s nigh on essential..
FW Accounting are contractor accountants, specialising in the Energy, Renewable and IT sectors. Formed in 1999, we have helped over 6,000 Energy Professionals enjoy the benefits of self-employment. As well as offering a range of accountancy and tax solutions tailored to suit the needs of the busy freelance professional, we also provide support and assistance with aspects such as Contractor Insurances, IR35 compliance, Offshore training, Financial Planning and International working.
