Practical, no-nonsense advice

We support a whole host of contractors across the South along with those working further afield.  We cover clients working in construction, Offshore Industries, IT Contracting & Freelancers along with those working in the medical professions as locums.

Whilst many firms have used various umbrella set ups for this type of operation we have always advised our clients to trade as a Limited Company to provide them with a robust and tax efficient platform to trade from.

 

Construction (CIS) & Offshore IT Contractors Medical professionals
We support many construction based contractors whether taxed under CIS or through their personal service company (PSC).  Many workers in this sector have been working under an umbrella set up which we do not support and prefer a PSC as it is a more robust trading vehicle.  Obtaining CIS refunds can be a time consuming pursuit, we therefore encourage our CIS contractors to have their refund claims submitted by the end of June, in order to the refunds due on a timely basis. The freelancer and IT contractor market has exploded in recent years and Oxfordshire has fantastic local talent in this field.  Offering a more personal service than our ‘online accounting firm’ counterparts, we offer a fair price, and do not deal with clients in a ‘call centre’ style. You will also find our software takes all the sting out of your paperwork and deals with invoicing and expenses recording in a relatively painless fashion allowing you to get paid on time, reduce your admin time and hopefully have more fun, whilst we deal with all the boring accounts stuff! If you are a Doctor, Dentist, Pharmacist or other Medical Professional carrying out Locum work alongside your NHS day job you need to speak with us. Working through an agency or umbrella company can be seriously bad for your financial health and reduce your take home fees, and therefore we would recommend your own PSC as a much better way to carry out your contracts. We provide a full all-inclusive package including free company formation to allow you keep more of the money you earn.  There are significant changes to agency and umbrella rules so if you are concerned about how the planned changes may affect your current operation you should contact us to see if we can help.
