Accountants For Freelancers

Are you a freelancer? If so, you know what it’s like to work to tight deadlines. In fact, we bet you’ve worked into the early hours on more than one occasion. 

Freelance work can be fast-paced and competitive, with the thrill of securing and delivering projects a key motivator. But there’s something important being lost in all of this – and that’s the accounts.

Whatever the nature of your business, as a freelancer you have accountancy commitments which cannot be avoided. If you’re finding yourself without the time or energy to do your own accounting, don’t panic! This is where QAccounting come in. 

Do freelancers need accountants?

A freelancer is a self-employed individual who carries out shorter-term projects on an ad-hoc basis for various different clients.

Despite the amazing flexibility freelance work offers, freelancers don’t get the same perks salaried employees do. These include job stability, regular hours paid leave and a predictable workload. Also, freelancers don’t benefit from PAYE automatic tax deductions, so must manage their own tax liabilities. 

It’s all too easy for freelancer accounts to fall by the wayside. The very nature of freelance work means that when a job comes in, you work full-tilt to get it completed for your client. Personal financial admin and hours staring at spreadsheets just don’t seem a priority when you’re making money doing something you’re good at.

As a result of this, many freelancers find themselves falling behind with bookkeeping and struggle to complete their annual accounts. This can be very stressful, especially when HMRC penalties and late fees start to come into play.

This is precisely why it’s recommended that every freelancer enlists the help of a good accountant.

Accountants for freelancers

So, what can QAccounting offer our freelancer clients?

Here are some of the tasks we cover:


A vital part of self-employed accounting, bookkeeping involves tracking what’s coming in and going out of your business finances. Bookkeeping is also a legal requirement and must be up-to-date and accurate in case HMRC comes calling.

QAccounting make it easy for our busy freelancers to keep the books updated on the go, with a streamlined bookkeeping solution from industry leaders Xero, whose cloud-based accounting platform makes bookkeeping a breeze.

Expenses tracking app

We offer all our clients use of our unique in-house expenses tracking app. This function allows you to take photos of receipts for instant upload and categorisation, meaning you won’t be struggling to unpick bank statements to find out what you’ve used for business purposes come year-end. 


All freelancers must complete an annual Self-Assessment. This involves logging all of your untaxed income, as well as declaring any grants or support payments, and correctly identifying all expenses related to your employment. 

It’s easy to make mistakes on your Self-Assessment and pay the incorrect amount of tax as a result. 

QAccounting can prepare your annual Self-Assessment on your behalf, ensuring your information is correctly reported and you never miss a deadline.


Freelancers often juggle several projects at once, which can spell disaster for orderly invoicing. QAccounting offers our clients automated invoicing through the user-friendly Xero software, meaning you can send instant invoices to your clients with the tap of an app without needing to go through the clunky process of filling out a word document every time. You can track your invoices, too, with automatic reminders sent out ensuring you’re paid on time.


Some freelancers are VAT-registered, which brings with it enhanced reporting requirements. Each quarter, HMRC will expect a VAT return, which can be confusing and time-consuming to keep on top of. We will process your VAT returns and keep HMRC in the loop on your behalf – meaning you don’t have to spend time preparing them every three months. 

Annual accounts

If your freelance enterprise takes the form of a limited company, you’ll need to prepare and submit a set of accounts to Companies House and HMRC every year. Annual accounts include things like financial statements, audited records, balance sheets and a profit and loss account. It can seem daunting, but we are the experts in doing just this – so you can rest assured that your annual accounts will be taken care of.


It’s a myth that freelancers can’t hire staff. If you’ve got any employees, including subcontractors under the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS), you’ll have to run a regular payroll. From tax codes, deductions, pension contributions and benefits – QAccounting can handle it on your behalf.

So, if you’re a busy freelancer, it makes sense to outsource the time-consuming, tricky stuff to a trusted partner – that’s us! 

Give QAccounting a call today. Our friendly, expert team will guide you through our packages and help you decide which level of support is right for you.

Tax Efficient

As a self-employed professional whose income is not taxed at source, it is imperative that you are accounting for your income correctly, logging expenditure accurately and then paying your tax liabilities in a timely manner to HMRC. All these elements are vital in operating compliantly and successfully as a freelancer. By using QAccounting you will be ensuring that your duties and obligations are being met correctly and your income is being utilised in a tax efficient manner.

Freelancer Accounting Services


Having flexibility is very important for anyone operating as a freelancer. By their very nature freelancers work in a flexible manner, often jumping from contract to contract and client to client, and this ease and control should also be reflected in your freelancer accounting. We offer flexible contracts that are transparent and easy to understand, and we offer flexible processes, designed specifically with self-employed freelancers in mind.

Freelancer Accounting Services

Dedicated Accountant

Having a dedicated accountant really is the mark of a personal accounting service. So often we have had freelancers switch to us from other providers on the basis that they did not have a dedicated point of contact that they could speak to on a regular basis. It is very unhelpful to have to call your accountant and must re-explain yourself at every turn, which is why we offer a dedicated accountant for all freelancer customers. Having a dedicated point of contact means that you will only ever be dealing with the same person at QAccounting, and your accountant will get to know you, and most importantly your business.

Accountants for Freelancers


It doesn’t matter if you are operating via a limited company or work as a sole trader, anyone earning untaxed income over a certain amount is required to perform an annual self-assessment tax return. Although there is no getting away from having to submit your tax return, you can escape the unnecessary worry of having to complete it yourself by appointing QAccounting to do it for you.

Freelancer Accounting Services

Freelancer accountancy is not as complicated as accounts for small to large businesses as, along with other elements, there usually isn’t any additional payroll to run or self-assessments to file. The reason why we’re highlighting this is that because of this, freelancers shouldn’t have to pay high fees for their accounting provider. We offer fixed fee accounting for all our customers, that means that the fees you pay on a month-by-month basis remain fixed and include everything you require for a set fee. We operate in this way as we believe that you shouldn’t have to pay any hidden fees or be met with any hidden surprises throughout the year.
