Here are some questions we are frequently asked. If there is anything we don’t cover, please feel free to drop us a line.
We are an online based accountancy firm. This means we embrace the latest technology because it allows you to have more control over your finances. “The Cloud” simply means your data is online, 24/7 so if you have an urge to know how much money you have available to dividend at 2am on a Saturday morning then you can! We find clients enjoy being able to shoot us a quick email or send their documents electronically rather than printing everything. Just think, no more worrying if your ink has dried out!
Very. All is takes is for you to let your current accountant know you’re moving and give us permission to talk to them. We do the rest!
Ever find yourself trying to remember where you put that receipt or figure out if you have enough money set to one side for tax? Our software will do it all of this for you. You can access it at any time to check your financial position and see who has paid your invoices. We can see your data too, so if you have a question we can easily see what you are referring to. You’ll receive less emails from us asking for information and we can send you useful, money saving tips.
I’m afraid not. Our aim is to make our client’s lives easier and we think doing it online is the best way to do that.
Nope, because we operate online we can assist clients across the country. You can even see our friendly faces via a Skype’s video chat if you’d like.
Not if you’re comfortable using the software you currently use. While we think FreeAgent (for contractors) and Clearbooks (for businesses) is the best, UK centric software that is flexible and easy to use, we are more than happy to accommodate alternatives.
Note: We have a close relationship with FreeAgent and Clearbooks so we get special rates. If you choose to use your own software your monthly fee may increase.
Contractors: You’ll usually find the company you’re contracting with will require you to use a limited company. It sounds daunting but we will take care of all of the admin and are just a phone call away for any question you might have.
Small businesses: This depends on your unique circumstances. Generally, once you’re earning more than £45,000 per year profit you will save money by incorporating. You also benefit from limited liability. However, don’t worry, we will let you know if it makes more sense to stay as a sole trader.
