As the tax deadline gets even closer (31st January), the vast majority of self-employed taxpayers reach out for the services of an accountant. Tax season can be a scary time of the year and seeking help from a qualified professional can certainly be appealing, but why pay an accountant when you can do it yourself for free? Ask yourself this question, ‘Do I really need an accountant?’ Today, SimpleTax is here to answer this age-old question, and explain how you can file your tax return like an expert, without the use of an accountant.
How does an accountant help?
Firstly, let’s look at what an accountant actually does for the taxpayer. A good accountant will:
- Keep on top of your books,
- File for self-assessment annually,
- Find savings where they can,
- Save you time
Granted, when it comes to tax season I can see why people reach out for a qualified professional. However, this all comes at a price. Yes, a good accountant will save you money if/where they can, but this may well be cancelled out by the charge to do so, up to £500 for the service described above.
If you would like to avoid these expensive accountancy bills, but still file your taxes like a professional, SimpleTax is the answer.
