There is a lot of difference in working with specialist accountants for freelancer as compared to a conventional accountancy firm. Usually there are many doubts in the mind of an individual who is turning into a Freelancer and our qualified team of chartered accountants for freelancers and taxation experts can provide answers to the following questions:
The modern workforce is far more fragmented. While most people are still engaged in some form of traditional employment, other work arrangements are swiftly gaining in awareness. One of the key challenges for a Freelancer is to opt for the most helpful business model.
According to the UK Government, starting business as a sole trader is the easiest way to start a business in the United Kingdom. For a freelancer, to start working as a sole trader, the requirements are:
Unless there is any industry-specific license needed, a freelancer is free to start working. There is no need to register with Companies House because although it is a legitimate business, it isn’t a company.
There is more opportunity for tax planning through a Limited Company but only experienced specialist freelancer accountants can guide the business about this. The most important savings working through a Limited Company over an umbrella are: National Insurance and the Flat Rate Value Added Tax (VAT) Scheme. All Umbrella Companies in the United Kingdom operate as PAYE. This means that tax is paid in the same way as a permanent employee.
The flat rate scheme is an incentive provided by the government to help simplify taxes. The amount of Value Added Tax (VAT) a business pays or claims back from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is usually the difference between the VAT charged by the business to the clients and the VAT the business pays.
A freelancer bills a client for £1,000, adding 20% VAT to make the total bill amount: £1,200. As an IT consultant, the VAT flat rate charged for the business is 14.5%. Hence, the flat rate payment will be 14.5% of £1,200, or £174.
I recently starteed my own company and in need of a good accountant. With my friends reference, I started DNS accountancy services and I am a quite satisfied with their service. My account manager Sneha Gurudutta was always responsive and guided me a lot especially during my company early days. Keep u the good work.
I have been DNS for the last 3 months and I am very happy with the service. My account manager Sneha Gurudutta guided me and helped me with all the major/minor steps with the account setup. The weekend support they provide is really helpful. I would definitely recommend DNS to all my friends.
Unfortunately my son passed away without leaving any contact name of his accountant. I was able to make contact with the firm through HMRC. The staff were very prompt, caring and supportive in settling his income tax account. I was extremely impressed with the efficient caring and supportive service received from all of DNS staff.

Having a good accountant means you can fully focus on your business, not worry about accounts and tax matters. Thank you DNS :-)
