Online accountancy services for freelancers

fixed-fee, all-inclusive freelancer accounting services

Freelancing is a great way to organise your working life and with home working being so prevalent and the availability of co-working spaces there has never been a better time to strike out on your own.

Being a freelancer means that you aren’t hooked into office politics, can organise your own working hours and that you have the freedom to work the way you want to. Remote working means that you don’t even have to be in the same country as your clients and platforms like Upwork, Fiverr and People Per Hour means that you can compete for clients who are based all over the world. But all of the good points aside, there’s one problem that freelancers always tell us causes them sleepless nights.

You’re on your own

The whole point of being a freelancer means that you are on your own.

This is great when you just need to take an afternoon off but not so good when you need to ask someone about whether you need to be VAT registered. As a freelancer, you’re probably awesome at graphic design but bookkeeping brings you out in a cold sweat.

Or you may be a stunning software programmer but find the thought of completing your self-assessment return a complete turn-off. That’s why we’re here - to take away the bad stuff and let you get on with your ‘A game’.

Accounting for freelancers

We design our services to be exactly what you need, no more and no less.
Some of our freelancers want nothing to do with numbers. They ask us to do their bookkeeping, annual accounts and tax return.
We’ll speak occasionally to understand if anything has changed and to advise them of different ways that they can save or make money.
In other words, it’s a ‘fire-and-forget’ service.
Others like to do their own books, keeping a tight rein on money and just ask us to complete their tax return or advise them on tax-efficient structures.
We like to think of this like a menu system, where people choose to do the things they feel comfortable with and then pick individual services where they are less confident.
You can choose to go for the full bookkeeping to tax-return option, or maybe you just want us to advise you on capital allowances.
The important thing is that we’re here for you when you need us.

With Accountax you are never on your own

For many of our clients, we act almost like a member of their team, advising, consulting and providing backup.
Our clients tell us that one of the things they value most is that we are approachable and friendly meaning that they feel happy to pick up the phone and ask us when they have a question.
The feeling of having someone you trust who has got your back gives them the confidence that they are doing things properly and that they don’t need to worry about the numbers.
If you’d like someone on your team then book a call and let’s see how we can help.


No hidden fees, no time-based billing, no extra charges for picking up the telephone, just one of our qualified professionals in your corner, part of your team, vested in your success.
