A few years ago I opened a limited company in the UK which I have mainly been using for contracting. I also have various side projects running through that, so I get a bit of extra protection and don’t need to think about how it will affect my personal taxes. I recently switched to an employed position, so the only thing running through the company now is the side projects, which brings in ~£100/mo.
I’ve been using Crunch, however their quality of service has really gone down over the past year, prices are going up (£80/mo), and their software isn’t very friendly for bootstrappers (I have to enter all the invoices manually and connecting Stripe payments is a PITA) - so I’m looking to switch to someone else.
So I’m wondering if someone could recommend an accountant who is knowledgeable about online businesses but isn’t too expensive (I’ve found a productised services for this, but they are similar prices or more than I’m paying now for Crunch). All I want them to do is to file the various returns and the annual accounts - I’m not looking for them to give me tax or business advice - and I’m the sole director and employee.
I see a lot of suggestions to find a local accountant that you can meet face-to-face, but the other spanner in the works is I’m no longer living in the UK. I only want them to manage accounting for the company - my personal taxes I can handle myself - but an accountant who is happy doing most things over phone/email is what I’m after.
Thanks in advance!
