Contractors & Freelancers

Are you a contractor, freelancer, locum or consultant who is looking for advice and guidance from a family run firm of award winning professionally qualified and experienced accountants and tax advisers?  Concerned about IR35 and Off-Payroll Working Rules?  Our principal, Jason Holden, has been advising clients on IR35 since its inception in April 2000.

Maybe you find yourself needing the services of a specialist firm of contractor accountants? Holden Associates may not be your only choice on the internet for a specialist firm of contractor accountants acting for contractors, freelancers, locums or consultants, but for our clients, we are their number 1 choice.

What Do You Need?

Ask yourself what you want from a firm of contractor accountants:

  • Are you looking for fixed fees, no hidden extra’s?
  • Do you want an all inclusive service – one fixed price for everything:
    • Year end Company Accounts, Corporation Tax Computations and Returns
    • Registrar Financial Statements for Companies House
    • Directors Self Assessment Tax Returns
    • Monthly/Quarterly Bookkeeping
    • Quarterly VAT Return preparation and filing (Flat Rate Scheme or Standard)
    • Monthly Payroll under RTI rules
  • Do you want to speak to the same person every time?
  • Do you want to deal with a Qualified Accountant, not an account manager?
  • Do you want to move your business accounts to the cloud? OR
  • Do you want your accountant to maintain your records securely offline?
  • Do you want an accountant who will deal with:
    • The taxman on your behalf?
    • All your HM Revenue & Customs submissions, on time?
    • All your Companies House submissions, on time?
  • Do you want an accountant who actually cares?
  • Do you want an HMRC investigation policy included at no extra cost?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions then please contact us today and ask about our fixed monthly fee of £197 plus VAT * for all of the above.
