Accounts Direct is here to help anyone who works for themselves. We give simple, reliable and affable accounting advice to contractors, freelancers and self-employed professionals.

  • Contracting is the best of both worlds; offering security and flexibility. As a contractor you can earn a higher hourly wage, but this is offset by the lack of holiday time, sick pay and other extras that a contracting job doesn’t benefit from.


    Making the right choices


    To be a contractor, there are some important decisions to make first. To begin with there are three basic options:

    • Set up your own business
    • Register with an umbrella company
    • Get paid by a recruitment agency


    Setting up your own business is the most popular of these options. But it also involves a high burden of bureaucracy and admin, which will substantially eat into time you should be dedicating to your new business. Accounts Direct will deal with the bureaucracy and admin so that you can focus on gaining more clients and making more money. We’ll help reduce your overall tax in a way that works 100% within the law.

    If you decide that setting up your own business is your way forward, there’s another choice to make. The two most common ways to set up your own business are:

    • As a contractor limited company
    • As a sole trader


    Naturally, each has its pros and cons, but operating through a limited company is increasingly becoming the popular choice. In part this is down to new changes in corporate working practices. But it’s also because you can be your own boss.

    We will discuss your options with you in detail to make absolutely sure you choose whatever is right for you and your business. Accounts Direct is committed to delivering outstanding an accountancy service to all our clients. We have helped over 2,000 to date. All have benefitted from:
