Whether your intention is to work as a contractor, run a one-person company or you have plans to employ a team, we are here to help you with all the financial aspects of working for yourself.
Whilst most of the time you will be able to manage everything through our simple online accountancy software, our expert team is also on hand to provide the advice and support you need to bring your business plan to life. In fact, there’s nothing we like more than helping customers to enjoy being their own boss.
With Clever, you get your own dedicated, expert accountant who can help you in lots of different ways.
Limited company formation
If you haven’t yet set up your business, we can advise on the best structure to enable you to work tax-efficiently. Our company formation service is fast and efficient, you simply need to provide us with some personal information to verify your identity.
Our online accountancy software will help you manage your cashflow and tell you of available funds that you could extract from your business, while ensuring you keep hold of enough money to pay any future tax liabilities. This helps to prevent any nasty surprises!
Unlimited tax advice
Once you’re up and running, we’ll keep an eye on your accounts to ensure you don’t pay more tax than you need to. We’ll also sort out all of your company submissions to HMRC and Companies House, together with your annual self-assessment tax return.
Help in paying yourself
We will provide ongoing advice and support to help you pay yourself in the most tax-efficient manner. Most limited company directors take a mixture of salary and dividend in which case we sort out your monthly PAYE returns and annual P60s. Our online accountancy software will help you manage your cashflow and tell you of available funds that you could extract from your business, while ensuring you keep hold of enough money to pay any future tax liabilities. This helps to prevent any nasty surprises!
Financial health checks
Our Growing Business Package includes comprehensive book-keeping so your dedicated accountant will be available to review the financial health of your business. This will help you to be clear about your cashflow. Whilst most information will be available to you via our secure, easy-to-use online portal, you can always pick up the phone to your dedicated accountant to talk everything through.
Register for VAT
We can advise you on whether you need to become VAT registered from day one. If you do, we will manage the registration process for you and then take care of your quarterly VAT returns. If you do not wish or need to become VAT registered straight away, that’s fine, you can talk to us again if your income starts to nudge towards the £85,000 turnover threshold.
Growing your business and your team
If you’re ready to grow your business and need to take on staff, we can help you work out the costs of employment so you know what salaries and packages you can afford. Once you’ve got your staff in place, you can use our straight-forward payroll service to look after up to 10 employees. If you do have more than 10 employees this is something we can take care of but you will need to speak to your dedicated accountant to talk through your options.
