IT consultancy

IT consultants are specialists, providing their expertise in cutting-edge technologies, bringing strategic thinking and problem solving skills to companies on a contract basis. In this rapidly evolving digital landscape there is a growing demand for experts in the fields of software development, cybersecurity and data analysis.

Individual IT contractors can provide their services to their end clients in different ways, such as operating as a sole trade or through a limited company (known as a personal service company). Choosing the best way to run your business can be important not only to help you get the best contracts, but also to ensure you are operating tax efficiently.

Here at Sherwin Currid we help our clients operate this way through the provision of comprehensive accounting services. From financial management and tax compliance to strategic planning and expert advice, our accountancy service offers essential support that empowers IT consultants to optimize their financial health and unlock their full potential.
