We’ve grown a business from scratch, we understand how busy you are, the pressure you feel and how precious your time is. That’s why we’re committed to helping freelancers, contractors and small business owners, like you, to grow your business and reclaim your freedom.
Once we have your business finances in hand, we can also offer guidance and support with financial planning and wealth creation.
We provide a wide range of accountancy services. Most of our clients choose to join our monthly fixed fee package to spread the cost of their accountancy and to make the best use of our services.
We work with several industry specialists to assist you with various aspects of financial planning, from mortgages to critical illness cover.
Straight-forward, no-nonsense fixed fees.
Our approach to fees is quite simple. We offer all of our services on a fixed fee basis and put together a package to suit your needs.
This means you’ll always know how much you need to pay and what you’ll get for that. You’re also able to spread the cost throughout the year to support your cash flow whilst ensuring you have an expert team on-hand to support you with any queries
All our fixed price arrangements include support and unlimited email and telephone access to your dedicated accountant. This means you don’t have to be afraid that asking us questions and letting us know your concerns will push your bill sky-high.
When we take on a new client, the basic tasks such as your Accounts, Company Tax Return, VAT Returns, Payroll and Personal Tax Return are just the beginning and the bare minimum you should expect from us. At Effective Accounting we want to build long-lasting relationships and support you throughout your business journey.
Our packages are based on the support you’ll need. Starting prices, for our typical clients are shown below:
We understand that all of our clients are unique and your needs might not be met by our typical packages. Book a call today and we’ll put together a bespoke package for you.
We believe that there’s no such thing as a stupid question. If something isn’t clear to you, we want you to be comfortable asking us for the answer. To help you out we’ve pulled together some of our most commonly asked questions.
Technically, no, you don’t need to hire an accountant. If you’re serious about your business then it’s an investment that will set you on the right track. We can help advise you on your accounts and tax for your current situation, but we love looking to the future with you and making sure your business will support you to achieve your dreams.
Switching accountants can be done with minimal fuss and disruption to your business. We will guide you through the process and aim to make changing accountants as painless as we can.
We offer packages with a monthly fee so it’s clear what you’re getting and how much you will be paying. Our packages start from just £75 + VAT per month for landlords, £95 + VAT per month for small businesses and £125 + VAT per month for contractors.
Arrange a call with Nicola to kick things off. Together you’ll go through your current set-up and your future plans, along with the usual paperwork. From there you’ll be introduced to your Client Manager who will look after you and your accounts. It really is that simple.
Yes! Nicola will take you through getting you set up with us but she will then introduce you to your dedicated Client Manager.
All of our contracts have a notice period of one calendar month. We don’t believe in tying people down!
Definitely not! Our clients are based all over the UK. We’re available via email and on the phone for any questions or catch-ups that we need.
Yes, in short. Our qualifications show that we know what we’re talking about and can provide you with the best advice from our extensive experience and training. Using an unqualified accountant might save you money in the short-term but it’s a decision most people regret.
Nope! We always work on pre-agreed fixed fees. That means there are no surprise bills at the end of the month. All of our packages include unlimited access to your Client Manager, that means you can get in touch whenever you need to without worrying about the cost.
I couldn't recommend them highly enough and will continue to use them for Spiral Static and all future ventures!
