Freelance contractors

Working as a freelance contractor brings many benefits, including being your own boss, varied assignments and flexibility about when and where you work.

Research also suggests that this independent way of working is also the fastest growing sector in the European labour market and established as a proactive career choice.

Going it alone can also involve certain risks – including falling foul of the taxman –which is why the support of an accountant experienced in working with freelance contractors is essential. That’s what you will find at Haslers Chartered Accountants in East London and Essex.

Whether you are already working as a contractor or just starting out, we can advise you on issues including the most appropriate and tax-efficient structure for your business, day to day accounting issues, VAT and compliance with the IR35 regime, designed to prevent freelance contractors working as disguised permanent employees.

We also have particular expertise in Xero online accounting, a simple, secure, cloud-based system that is ideal for freelance contractors.

Our comprehensive range of services also means we can provide additional expertise as and when required, including tax planning, business strategy and independent financial advice from specialist teams, based within Haslers, from Atlantic Wealth Management UK and Pacific IFA.

By tailoring our support to your needs, we can help to minimise the time you spend on paperwork and financial admin so that you can concentrate on your existing clients and winning new business.
