As a contractor, your lifestyle is hectic so it’s easy to let your accounts take a backseat. That’s why it’s important to find an accountant who can manage your finances, leaving you more time to focus on what’s important.

Here at ClearSky, we pride ourselves on the level of service we provide and we’re dedicated to making the lives of our contractors as easy as possible. To help you in your decision-making process, we’ve made a list of some important considerations when it comes to choosing your accountant.

Find a specialist contractor accountant

Since the contracting lifestyle is unique, it’s important to find an accountant who understands your specialist requirements. At ClearSky, we specialise in supporting freelancers and contractors, so you can rest assured knowing that your finances are managed by experts.

Look for more than just an accountancy service

Choosing a specialist contractor accountant can be just the beginning and it’s likely that you’ll need some extra services during your contracting career.

At ClearSky, contractor accounts are our speciality, but we realise that you might need a little extra support every now and again when it comes to mortgages, insurance and other financial services. That’s why we’ve partnered with a number of popular names such as CMME and Hiscox to provide you with great deals on their products.

Your accountant should know the rules

The rules surrounding tax, dividends and IR35 can often be complex, so it’s important your accountant can advise you as best as possible.

Your accountant should be up to date with all of the changes in the industry and be able to advise on how these could affect you.

Your accountant should be accessible

As a contractor, you don’t work the standard 9-5 so it makes sense that your accountant shouldn’t do the same. Choosing a service with extended opening hours means your accountant will only be an email or phone call away when you need them.

Choose ClearSky Accounting

The team at ClearSky have a wealth of understanding when it comes to providing support to contractors. From forming your own limited company to a helping hand in completing your tax returns, we’re with you all the way.
