Find out more about how we can help you

Are you a sole trader?

So you’re working alone as a sole trader, that’s great! The freedom of being a freelancer, or running a small business with no employees to keep life simple is attractive to many! And we’re here to help you keep hold of that freedom by taking care of your business finances and tax matters, to free you up to focus on doing what you’re best at and what you love!

You can use us for as much or as little as you like. Whether it’s VAT  or self assessment tax returns, bookkeeping or helping you to figure out the best way to grow tax-efficiently, our team are happy to help.

How we help

For an affordable monthly fee, we can help you to ensure you operate tax efficiently and prevent any unexpected surprises, and support you all year round with advice. Ad hoc services are available if required. 

We offer a wide range of services for self-employed Sole Traders, but here’s an overview:

Tax Returns

We can put together your tax return and offer advice to help you ensure your business is working as tax-efficiently as possible. We can offer ad-hoc tax returns but find clients receive the best value when they use us all year round for advice to ensure they don’t find themselves with unexpected tax bills at the end of each year!


We can take care of your bank reconciliation and bookkeeping – we use cloud-based bookkeeping software called Nomisma by choice, but we can help you if you already use other bookkeeping software. We’re always happy to help and offer training and advice to help you ensure your business’ financial records are accurate.

Additional services

As a sole trader there’s more than just your self-assessment to think about. We’ll advise you about other responsibilities and ways you operate tax efficiently. As well as general advice, we can also offer services such as VAT returns, payroll, and much more. Check out our Services page for all the different services we can offer!
