Contractors seeking an online contractor accountancy service or software can use Contractor Calculator’s free checklist to profile and select the service that best suits the needs of their contracting business.
Online contractor accountancy providers Brookson and Crunch, together with online accountancy software vendor FreeAgent, have helped us create a comprehensive checklist designed to help contractors identify the specific features and benefits that are of most use to them and their business.
The checklist starts by asking about the service provider’s contracting pedigree. It then works through the sign-up process and functionality, before dealing with which statutory HMRC and Companies House paperwork is automated.
Each contractor’s needs will differ. Those with an existing accountant can choose an online accountancy software service without an accountancy component, and which is designed to complement their own accountant’s services. Alternatively, the checklist can help to identify those service providers who offer a comprehensive and integrated accountancy service alongside the online software.
The checklist can also help contractors to identify the costs of the service, and whether there are elements that fall outside the standard advertised fee.
