Kathryn helped me setup a limited company so I could operate as tax efficiently as possible. The service has been great from Karhryn and the team and I’m really happy with the all-inclusive service, it makes my life a lot easier.
Kathryn and her team have unceasingly provided great service and advice on the best & most tax efficient methods of working. They have not only saved me money from a company perspective, but also from a personal one too. Their advice has been sound and well thought out. Other than a couple of enhancements to the portal they provide, there is little else they could do to improve an already great service.
We started a new business and needed accountancy services. We also needed someone to complete our tax returns for us. Kathryn efficiently set us up and got us running with a new system within a new business. She also took on our personal tax. My situation was quite complex with foreign income, joint property rentals and limited company income.
Kathryn is also very proactive at requesting documents for completion of the tax return to save us all from last minute panic!
Kathryn provided invaluable clear, concise and comprehensible advice regarding my company’s tax liabilities and my own self assessment obligations. She produced my company’s end-of-year accounts and my own self assessment return leaving me to concentrate fully on running my business.
The limited company has ceased to exist, but Kathryn was still able to assist with tax returns and the insolvency process of the firm. She has been as helpful now as she was when the company was trading.
After a good number of years operating through the same accountant, I was looking for a change to the services provided; I wanted something more modern, who could appreciate my personal circumstances and provide an overall better quality of service. In 2012 I made the change to Freestyle Accounting after some 18 years of working with my previous accountant. Since then I have worked closely with Kathryn and found her to be open, honest and extremely reliable; a significant change for me having received a service to the contrary in previous years… Read More
Kathryn has been very helpful whenever I have had a query. Recently Kathryn arranged for my personal portal to be updated the same day as I forgotten to do it. This meant that I could draw from my company’s funds and pay myself.
Freestyle Accounting was recommended to me by a friend. Initially my conversations were around getting set up and even though I was not using or paying for any services the Sales Manager (Jon) was extremely helpful in answering any questions I had over many phone calls. Eventually, 7 months later when I began using their services, I can not think of a word to say how brilliant they have all been. The portal is very easy to use and most things are self explanatory… Read More
I’ve been with them 10 months and have had excellent service. Phone and email enquiries are handled quickly. Beyond issuing your invoices through their portal and paying your bills when told to, they handle virtually everything – tax forms…the lot. I have no hesitation in recommending Freestyle. They do what they say they will do, and do it well.
Freestyle Accounting were recommended by a friend, and having previously experienced poor service from a competitor, I have been very impressed with Jon Robinson and his team. Their portal is easy to use, and returns all the relevant figures you need to know. Any questions or queries that I have had, have been dealt with promptly by team members in a friendly manner. Five star service.
For starting up a business with limited knowledge of the steps you need to take, Freestyle Accounting are a great help. They always have knowledgeable staff available to talk over the phone or respond to emails on the same day and so far I have nothing negative to report. Once up and running, they have an excellent online portal system to help organise the financial side of your business as efficiently as possible. This tool is excellent. Although Freestyle Accounting may cost more than the average accounting firm, I feel at the moment I am getting a quality service which is value for money.
I found freestyle by chance when searching for an accountant. I have to say I am glad I did. The portal software is excellent and makes it very easy to keep track of your business cash flow. I have always found the entire team at Freestyle very helpful if I had a query or needed some assistance with the portal. I highly recommend Freestyle for contractors.
I was recommended Freestyle by a friend when I decided to become a contractor. I have been using them for over a year and their service has been excellent.
Their all in one package has saved me a lot of time and hassle with setting up my Ltd company, bank account, Indemnity insurance and submitting my expenses, VAT, corporation tax and personal tax returns.
I have found their staff to be always responsive and helpful.
If you want a belt and braces approach to your contracting administration around accountancy, financials, IR35 etc then freestyle is for you. However you do pay a premium for this service!!

The service has been great from Karhryn and the team and I’m really happy with the all-inclusive service, it makes my life a lot easier.
As an independent contractor, I had decided that the use of an Umbrella Company was no longer the best option and needed to set up a Limited Company to administer my freelancing activity. Kathryn provided advice and guidance from setting up the business on “day one”, and throughout the company’s seven years of trading. My day to day bookkeeping was managed through an easy-to-use web portal which simply required me to enter invoices, payments and expense items etc. Kathryn looked after the Accounts preparation, submissions, VAT returns and Payroll… Read More

Just a note to you and the team, Freestyle have made the start in my new contracting career very easy and taken a load off my mind so thanks all round!
I have always found Freestyle Accounting, in particular the tax department to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable. If I am promised a call back – it happens!
If I had not stumbled across Freestyle on the Internet I would have a lot more worries, on a subject where my knowledge is woefully lacking. Thanks, Kalbir, Ceri, and Gurdip.
I think the Freestyle accountancy service is excellent and takes a lot of the paperwork and worries away from me as a contractor. The staff are kind and intelligent and put a lot of effort and hard work into helping their clients and making running a Ltd company easier.
Thank you very much for all your hard work and for the excellent service that I have received from Freestyle. I will certainly recommend Freestyle to anyone I meet who is contracting.
I appreciate the lengths that Freestyle contractor accountants have gone to, to accomodate my circumstances and thank you very much for the service and flexibility that you are providing me…..please pass on my gratitude and satisfaction with the Freestyle service to your management and assure them that I am recommending Freestyle to all colleagues who are considering contracting at the moment.
Everyone in the team is friendly, responsive, highly knowledgeable and consistently provides a personalised professional 1st class service. I am genuinely treated as an individual valued customer, not just another number in the system! I’d have no hesitation in recommending the service to fellow contractors. Keep up the great work!
Freestyle has taken the admin and worry out of Ltd Company accounting. I imagined the process would deliver headaches not experienced in PAYE taxation but, thanks to the informative and timely nature of the Freestyle team and the instant usability of the portal, the transition has been seamless.
Having switched accountants to Freestyle a few months ago, I can’t believe the difference in the level of service I’ve received. My accounts were initially in a bit of a state, but with the dilligence of the Freestyle team things were in order in no time. Freestyle customer services are friendly and very efficient, and I’ve been able to contact them with any questions I may have. As a result any worries or problems I’ve had have been quickly resolved. Finally, the accounts portal is a brilliant tool and very easy to us.
I would heartily recommend Freestyle to anyone!

This is where Freestyle step in with our truly all inclusive service.
