Freelance contractors

What’s good about our Freelancer service


If you are working through your own Limited Company, one of the challenges is to keep track of the taxes that you are building up. Things can quickly get out of hand when you don't.


Our monthly system calculates tax and lets you know the taxes you owe and which ones you need to pay and when.  We also recommend how much you could keep in your business account so that you can build up a tax fund and never be surprised with an unexpected tax bill.  If you follow our advice you should be able to pay your taxes with ease when they become due. Having worked with thousands of Contractors since 1995, they have found this to be one of the most useful aspects of our service.
