Accountants for Sole Traders

Self-Employed Accounting Services

Going Solo...

There are many benefits and advantages of being a sole trader.

Working for yourself as a non-limited entity means that you are the business, and for those with little or no accounting experience, keeping on top of your accounting and finances can be both challenging and time-consuming, especially when juggling it with your day to day.

Your Own Dedicated Accountant

Once you become a Gorilla Accounting client, we’ll introduce you to your very own personal accountant. They will offer you unlimited support and help you with everything from initial set-up steps and FreeAgent onboarding to providing help and advice on complex financial accountancy and tax issues such as improving your tax efficiency to increase your take home pay.

We understand that running a business as a sole trader is demanding enough without having the extra worry of staying on top of your bookkeeping, missing a tax deadline, making sure your tax submission is accurate and maximising your tax allowances. Choosing the right accountant is important to ensure you have all the support you need so that your business is financially healthy.

Your accountant will not only assist you with gathering paperwork, documents and receipts, but will ensure that you’re always up-to-date with tax return deadlines, VAT bills, outstanding invoices and more.

Unlike other online accountants for sole traders, with Gorilla Accounting you’ll have a direct dial contact number for your personal accountant meaning that you’ll only ever be a phone call away from your expert advisor. You can also reach them via email, video call or face to face – whichever works best for you.

We keep a close focus on our client to accountant ratio to ensure you get the best possible service and that your business is always closely taken care of. You get to know your accountant on a first name basis – we wouldn’t have it any other way.
