Why you should use an accountant as a freelancer
Tax affairs can be complicated and lengthy, and when you’re first starting your freelancing career you may not want the responsibility or hassle of doing it yourself. You’ll also need to decide whether you want to contract through your own Limited Company or go self-employed. A good accountant will talk through the pros and cons of each, and help you decide which the best route is for you, both personally and professionally.
Marc will be discussing the main differences between being self-employed and a Limited Company, to help simply each option and how they operate. He’ll also be outlining the benefits of enlisting the services of a freelancer accountant, and how they can help you stay on the right side of the taxman.
