The business environment within the UK is very dynamic and more people are realising that the job market is not secure. We can no longer wait for someone to give us a job or work for 40 years for one company, hoping to get a watch at the end of your tenure. More individuals are becoming entrepreneurs.

According to the Office For National Statistics “The number of self-employed individuals increased from 3.3 million people (i.e. 12.0% of the UK’s labour force) in 2001 to a massive 4.8 million people (i.e. 15.1% of the total labour force) in 2017.”

It is very difficult to be an expert in every aspect of your business and still be successful. You have to choose the core part of your business and outsource the rest to others that are more technical and have all the necessary expertise to give you the best possible advice. 

With the right guidance, your business can explode to a new level.  Some individuals try to do it all themselves. We have a term for this penny-wise and pound foolish. 

Do you need an accountant if you are self-employed?

No. You do not need to hire an accountant if you are self-employed, there are no laws that require you to do so. However, you may benefit from their years of skills, knowledge, and expertise accumulated from the many years of diligent work in your industry. 

Some people take hours of their valuable time learning, trying and doing the accounting and tax return on their own in an effort to save money. Yes. when you do the accounting yourself you will save the few hundred pounds in the accounting fees. However, on average, you will lose more than twice that in the amount that a good accountant could save you. 

You love what you do and the accountants love that they do. I know everyone is different and to each their own, as accountants, we just love numbers and the secrets that the numbers reveal. Furthermore, we enjoy sharing these insights with our clients.
