I'm a contractor - do I need an accountant?

File your own corporation tax as a contractor




It's not a good time for contractors. What with the spectre of IR35, then to top that Covid-19 comes along meaning that you have either been laid off or at best facing a rate cut and what contracts are available seem to have eye watering low daily rates.
Perhaps now is a good time to look at cost savings for your business. One of those areas could be doing your own corporation tax return and saving a small fortune on your accountant.

Is it possible?

Of course it is! You spend all your days project managing, analysising business problems, advising, trouble shooting, coding - isn't this just another thing that needs breaking down and working out?
Every website that relates to contractors tells how you need an accountant and how difficult it is to file your end of year return. Guess who write these articles? Yes accountants and accountancy companies!

Here at EasyDigitalfiling we believe that you should have the option to choose whether to use the services of an accountant or whether you file your own end of year company accounts and CT600 tax filings to HMRC and Companies House. That's why we have developed easy to use cloud based software that helps you step by step to prepare your end of year company tax return.
