    Darren - you beat me to it for a change.


    Orangehopper - Why do you need an accountant close to your area?

    I have been dealing with my accountant for 2.5 years now and know the five staff well. Communication is by e-mail or phone and I can always get hold of someone when I need to. They are geared up for remote communication and can be relied upon to service enquiries during working hours - I don't think this would necessarily be true of an office oriented accountant.

    Ok, let see if I can keep this brief because time is limited at moment.

    I do all my own paye, vat, double entry books. Only use accountant for end of year returns. Could probably do end of year stuff but always like third party check with awareness of changes in taxation etc.

    Used to have second string to business (dtp) with large amounts of paperwork. Eventhough thid side has died still want flexibility to do as I please regarding additional business and may not necessarily fit into pure IT contractor model.

    Not sure, but could be convinced otherwise, that l like the service provided by some of the specialist IT contractor accountants. Seems you have to complete their monthly spreadsheets to ensure they can do vat, paye, end of year etc. In my case this would be in addition to own books.

    So, I believe my ideal is local accountant who I can give my books to at end of year to do returns while being on hand to answer my odd (usually a couple a year) questions. Of course, this must cost less than £1000 per year.

    My current reason for considering change is my current accountant has been swallowed up by Baker Tilly which has meant a 2 fold increase in fees for simply doing my end of year returns.

    Any suggestions?

    Orangehopper - I can see where you're coming from but imagine my accountant would be able to help.

    When you have the time and if you are interested, send me an e-mail explaining your additional requirements in brief on the link below. I will pass this on to my accountant who will contact you direct.

    Sorry about this! Blatant ad removed

    We could help with the scenario you described. Our service is aimed at monthly records / VAT returns for IT contractors but we also provide an annual accounting service for IT related businesses.

    Is that you editing the above James?I thought ads were allowed in this forum?

    I would have thought that the nature of my question called for accountants to say, "Oi, here, gives us your work".

    Or have I just missed the point of your edits?

    Actually it's me, Bryan, the "sidekick".

    Blatant ads are not to be posted anywhere on the forum I'm afraid. Opinions and thoughts on services are of course always welcomed but I'm removing any ads posted since some are getting a little carried away in an opportunistic sense!

    Thanks everyone for your understanding.
