When should I get an accountant?

In the UK, the right time to get an accountant depends on your individual circumstances and the complexity of your financial affairs. Here are some key milestones and situations that indicate it may be time to consider hiring an accountant:

Starting a Business

If you’re launching a new business, an accountant can provide valuable guidance on business structure, tax planning that can help with financial decisions.

Growing Your Business

As your business expands, so will its financial complexities. An accountant can help you manage increasing revenue, expenses, and compliance requirements.

Tax Obligations

If you find tax laws confusing or challenging to navigate, an accountant can ensure you stay compliant with tax regulations, maximising deductions and minimising liabilities.

Handling Payroll

When you hire employees, payroll becomes a critical aspect of your business. An accountant can assist with payroll processing, ensuring accurate calculations and tax withholdings.

Tax Season Stress

If you feel overwhelmed during tax season or worry about making errors on your tax return, an accountant can relieve this burden and ensure accurate filings.

Dealing with HMRC

If you receive communications or inquiries from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), an accountant can represent you and handle these matters professionally.

Selling or Acquiring Assets

When you plan to sell or acquire significant assets or undergo major financial changes, an accountant can guide you through the financial implications.
