Why Do I Need an Accountant as a Sole Trader?

As a sole trader, you handle every aspect of your business which can sometimes be taxing. This is especially true if you aren’t a numbers person – as such, there’ll be a high chance of mistakes in your work, which you can’t really afford. This is one of the main reasons to seek the accountancy services of one of the Accounts by Simply professionals. Our accountants provide bespoke services to anyone self-employed – it’s their area of expertise!

Do You Need an Accountant When Self-Employed?

If you’re self-employed and register as a sole trader, HMRC requires you to submit a personal tax return to HMRC by the 31st of January after the end of the financial year. Besides this, you’ll also need to show other revenue sources for the year, such as a regular full-time position.

Whilst having a sole trader accountant isn’t mandatory, as a freelancer, there’s lots to do when running your own business. Not only do you have to do your actual job, but you’ll also need to handle your finances. And when tax time rolls around, you suddenly have no end of forms to fill in that you’re unsure about, let alone how to fill them in.

How a Qualified Accountant Can Support a Self-Employed Person

At Accounts by Simply, you can count on us. Engaging a chartered accountant has numerous benefits, including calculating, completing and submitting your Self-Assessment return. We help you throughout the entire process, from registering to guiding on tax allowable outgoings to organising and filing tax returns.

Accounts by Simply takes care of your Self-Assessment tax return and other finance-related tasks such as income and expenditure statements, tax bills, and capital gains tax issues. What that means? You have more time for other parts of your business.

Benefits of Using a Charted Accountant

  • Offload your financial workload. You’ll have more time to spend on other, more pressing parts of your business, such as marketing and customer services.
  • Familiar with financial terminology. Unless you have an accounting background, you won’t understand everything about all aspects of your business. So, leave the accounting jargon to us.
  • Avoid financial blunders. Using us means there’s less chance of making errors in filing your taxes which may see you facing a fine.
  • Money-saving. The initial outlay of investing in a qualified accountant will pay dividends. Your accountancy fees become a tax deduction, helping cut your business profits, so you pay less tax.
