Why do I need an accountant as an individual?

For many individuals, an accountant is an extremely helpful consideration if and when you need to file a tax return. For more information on tax returns, visit our helpful piece here! Tax returns are necessary if you are self-employed as a sole trader or as a limited company, as well as for any other untaxed income that should be declared. If you Pay As You Earn (PAYE), your tax declarations and payments are handled by your employer and are paid automatically from your wages.

In the UK, you can choose to file your Self Assessment tax return yourself, but we do recommend seeking advice from an accountant and enlisting them to file it on your behalf to ensure accuracy. Our accountants all have the AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) qualification and can help you to claim expenses, calculate the tax you owe and even find ways to lower your tax bill with tax-free allowance claims. Contact our experts today to learn more about our personal accounting services.
