Accountancy and Tax Guides

Starting a new business can be pretty daunting. We focus on the small contractor/freelancer market, and have prepared a number of guides to cover the basics on most tax and accounting topics these businesses are likely to come across.

The accountancy guides are there to help you understand what all the various different numbers mean to you, and what obligations you have as a company director.

The tax guides are more geared towards letting you know what you can/cannot claim as an expense to reduce your corporation/personal tax bills. Also covered is the main tax choice you’re likely to encounter, VAT. Do you have to register? If not, should you do it voluntarily? Are there any schemes that might benefit you?

Finally we have some admin guides. There are quite a lot of online forms you’ll need to complete at various different stages of a company’s life. Some of the trickier ones we’ve got guidance on here.

These guides are all generic and will be applicable in the majority of cases, at the time they were written. These do not constitute professional advice from Maslins Ltd, only general guidance.
