Working with an accountant can give you more time to focus on your business while ensuring your freelance business is looked after by a professional.

We offer a wide range of services tailored to suit your needs such as annual accounts filing, VAT registration and returns, personal tax, company secretarial work and payroll registration and administration. We have worked with freelancers and self employed individuals for over 15 years and we pride ourselves on offering a comprehensive, personal service to all of our clients.
