Why Choose Us

Why Gerald Edelman?

Contractors and freelancers with growing businesses need to capitalise on time and cost efficiencies wherever they can, especially when tax liabilities are involved.

It’s usually beneficial to have an experienced accountant and adviser on your side to ease the stress involved with preparing end-of-year returns, and to act as a sounding board for ideas and to identify opportunities throughout the year itself.

If you operate as a limited company, there are additional compliance responsibilities relating to the preparation of annual financial statements, corporation tax and other statutory matters. We also work closely with contractors to ensure the nature of work and client relationships are fully compliant with the latest IR35 guidelines.

Frequently asked questions

Is it possible to pick the specific accountancy services I need?

+
-

Yes, you can pick the services you need. Whilst many of our clients want us to manage their full tax and reporting obligations, we also work with clients that ask us to support them with specific aspects like bookkeeping, IR35 or VAT. We are flexible in that regard and can tailor our services to match your needs.

How much does it cost to hire an accountant for a freelancer or contractor?

+
-

The cost of hiring an accountant for a freelancer or contractor depends on the complexity of your finances, the size of your business and the level of services you require. We offer complete transparency on our fees and can give you a more accurate cost estimate as part of your free consultation.

Do you provide business support beyond tax compliance and bookkeeping?

+
-

Yes, clients often stay with us because they like the convenience of being able to plug into the different services we offer. Beyond tax advice and basic accounting, we also regularly support freelancers and contractors with wider financial planning and investment advice.
