You have probably already realised that as a contractor the most tax efficient way of contracting is through a Limited Company. You may have also realised that there is a certain amount of paperwork and time-consuming administration required to set up and manage a Contractor Limited Company.
Well, that’s why in 2006, we created the Freestyle Limited Company Accountants “everything done for you” service for Contractors. Our goal is to make Contracting through a Limited Company as stress-free and easy as possible, so we developed a service that takes care of everything for you...

You want to maximise your contracting income by being as “tax efficient” as possible
You want everything you need included for a fixed monthly fee (with no surprises)
You need to get set up quickly so you can start contracting straight away
You want guidance and support from specialist qualified limited company accountants, both at the start and throughout your contracting career
STAGE 1 - We'll get you off to a Great Start
You’ll be set up & ready to start contracting quickly without lifting a finger (well, apart from signing a few forms that is)
STAGE 2 - We take care of all your ongoing limited company accountancy and tax requirements
As a Limited Company you will have ongoing responsibilities, but we take care of these too:

Having switched to Freestyle Limited Company Accountants a few months ago, I can’t believe the difference in the level of service I’ve received. 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!
(Simon Coope, SJCNet Limited)
The people at Freestyle Limited Company Accountants were a great help...overseeing my affairs and ensuring that I did not fall foul of the numerous pitfalls that ensnare the unwary contractor. Friendly and knowledgeable, nothing is too much trouble for these people. For me, the Freestyle service removes any nagging doubts that I may be “overlooking something” or missing out on the “best possible deal.”
(Nick McEwen, Norwood IT Limited)
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.
(A. Williamson, Contractor, London)
I spend 5 minutes each Friday evening completing my invoicing and entering my expenses on the online portal. A further 5 minutes at the end of the month allows me to draw my salary, expenses and issue dividends. It’s simple!
