Freelance media & creative industry contractor accountants

Straightforward services for media contractors

Media contractors and freelancers are in particular demand, as creative work can be project based and it often makes sense for companies or even agencies to outsource specific pieces of work to freelancers. If you work in this industry you might decide that working for yourself is the best option for you, in which case there are things you need to consider in terms of your accounts and taxes. As specialist media contractor accountants we can provide clear advice and comprehensive services to make this easy for you.

The kinds of media contractors we help include:

  • freelance copywriters
  • freelance designers
  • freelance graphic designers
  • freelance illustrators
  • freelance web designers
  • freelance writers

We offer various services for media contractors, from helping you decide what business structure is best for you to handling all your accounts. We have broken our services down into simple packages so that you can easily choose the right path. Our specialist accountants will help you make the right choice, and once you’re up and running you can relax in the knowledge that your finances are being professionally managed. Issues such as company registration and IR35 can be confusing and time consuming for media contractors who have projects to manage and clients to keep happy. But don’t worry; we can help you with everything.

When we manage your accounts, we pay particular attention to expenses to make sure they’re handled properly, as they can get quite complicated. Freelancers who operate as self employed need to have a good system of record keeping to help simplify things, so that self assessment returns are done in good time to manage the tax liabilities and payments on account.

It’s not unheard of for creative freelancers to come on board with serious arrears in their tax and accounts, but our clear and focused approach means we can quickly get everything resolved with HMRC and find the best way forward.

Whether you are just starting out as a media contractor or you have been freelancing for years, we will be able to help you.
