Accounting for Contractors
Operating as a contractor or freelancer, you’ll know it offers you a level of freedom, flexibility and autonomy you rarely find with permanent work. But trading in this way also comes with more responsibility, and this is especially true for your accounting. You’re liable for ensuring your records are accurate and up-to-date, and making sure any HMRC record checks are completed properly and on-time.

The IR35 legislation refers to the rules around off-payroll workers, including contractors. These rules are in place to ensure that workers who offer their services through their own companies or an equivalent intermediary, pay income tax and National Insurance (NI) contributions broadly in-line with the rates they would pay if they were employees.
It’s vitally important that these rules are met, and the changes to the legislation in April 2021 mean that the responsibility of ensuring these rules are met correctly lies with the client.
If you are a contractor or client and want to know more or are seeking advice around the IR35 legislation, we can provide all the details you need to know.
Whilst it’s important you find an accountant who can provide the services you want, if you are switching from an existing arrangement, we will work to make switching as easy as possible to ease what can be a disruptive time.
