Incorporating a Ltd company

Depends on where you are, but I use a company in Glasgow called Merit Business Services for all my IR35/Accounting/Company work - their rates are reasonable and will answer all my stupid questions with good grace. Don't know if I can do a link to them on the forum, but google is your friend.

Good luck with your contracting - the market is very flat at the moment in Scotland, I haven't done much over the last year (partly through choice though), but it does appear to be picking up at last.

I have done the same thing, and I have fully engaged SJD Accountancy. They specialise in contractors and are, frankly, excellent. A little bit more expensive, maybe, but it's worth the money, IMO. They are fully up to speed on IR35 issues, etc. and help with everything you need, with respect to accounting and company administration.

I use these people

Contractor Accountant, Limited and Umbrella Company Services by Brookson : Brookson

they are nothing short of brilliant. The first time I dealt with them on the phone it was scary how professional they are, all my IR35/Personal and Corporation Tax is done with them very good people to deal with. They even set up your company bank account for you (if you want them to) , they fill out all paperwork on your behalf (if you want them to) then they send it to you to review and sign. If you dont think something looks write you just phone them up and they explain it all to you and if you want something changed they change it. Took alot of the stress out of setting it all up for me.

They'll also look after your personal tax things for you which I think is a good thing, as I dont really have a clue what goes on there. They are also quite expensive but well worth it.

others have said as much, but I'll say it plainly:

Don't try to save a few quid with your choice of accountant... a good one that costs a few quid more will save you double that in the longer term in stress and money :thumbsup:
