I’m offering my services through Sound Administration Ltd in light of the stress I see many people going through each year when the time comes to submit and pay their Self Assessment Tax Return. I know the television adverts boast that ‘tax doesn’t have to be taxing’ but it seems that doesn’t really apply to many of us who are either too busy, frustrated or simply confused by the process of compiling annual accounts and submitting a tax return.
Having obtained a Business Management Degree, which included in-depth study of accountancy, and having worked in Accounting & Finance roles over the years, I am well equipped to take this stressful task off your hands. As a freelance musician and rock climbing instructor I also understand the nature of self-employment and the finances involved: what expenditure is/is not tax deductible and why, what proportions of certain expenses can be claimed, capital allowances on assets, foreign income and taxes, how to save money by claiming for things that often slip through the net, the correct bookkeeping procedures as required by HMRC etc.
The service packages I am offering are as follows:
1) Bookkeeping only – send me your paperwork* and I will compile your monthly accounts for you, providing you with a copy which can be used by you or an accountant to complete your Self Assessment Tax Return to HMRC.
2) SA Tax Return only – enter your expenses and income on a spreadsheet (I will provide you with a template) and send that to me with your paperwork* and I will complete and submit your Self Assessment Tax Return for you, providing you with a copy.
3) Full Service Package – send me your paperwork* and leave the rest to me; I will compile your monthly accounts and complete and submit your Self Assessment Tax Return for you, providing you with copies of both.
* receipts, bank statements, invoices, payslips, diary
*** ⅓ off for all first year graduates – to give you a helping hand in your first year as a self employed freelancer ***
Prices for these services differ since the workload varies between them, but I offer competitive rates and will give you a quote following a brief chat to ascertain your needs, ensuring all fees are discussed and agreed upfront. I am also happy to spread the fee over the year if necessary. These services are available annually, semi-annually, quarterly or monthly.
In addition to these services, I can help you plan your finances through the year to lesson the burden of the tax bill when it comes.
Should you have any questions at all, or wish to discuss any of these packages further, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will be very happy to discuss your needs and recommend a package to suit you. The best plan with tax and accounts is to get ahead of the game – or even better, to let me do that for you!
