Sole trader accountancy services

Hey, I am Tom a sole trader accountant in Lichfield, serving clients all over the UK.

When setting up a business, registering as a sole trader or ‘self-employed’ can be the first port of call. But it can be a daunting experience knowing what your commitments are, what expenses to claim, when to register for VAT? Ahh the list can be endless.

I am a sole trader accountant and I am here to help you.

What is a sole trader?

A sole trader is someone who who runs their own business as an individual, self-employed, unlike a Limited Company, where you are separate entities.

One of the commitments of being a sole trader you must submit a yearly tax return to HMRC, which is due online on 31st January following the previous 5th April tax year.

Meaning you need to keep track of your sales, expenses, and profit for your business.

A sole trader is more of a simple business structure, with less commitments than a Limited Company. Being a sole trader can be less tax efficient than a Limited Company as you’re taxed on all the income from the business in the period.

Why choose Every Cloud to be your sole trader accountant?

Tom at Every Cloud Accounting is simply brilliant. He is really easy to work with, and doesn't bamboozle us with a million questions - he does his job brilliantly whilst leaving us to run our business. I have worked with countless accountants over the years and Tom is the first one that I have actually enjoyed working with! In just six months he has set us up on QuickBooks and Dext, has produced a three year financial forecast for a funding application and offered us advice on tax and dividends - all whilst keeping up with our book keeping and VAT returns. I would recommend Tom to anyone looking for an approachable, friendly and professional accountant.
