No matter how perfect you think you are, at some point you will probably make an error.

Roger Hatherall can help with all your accounting needs and ensure there are never any mistakes in your finances. If you re stressing over finances and your head gets in a frazzle, it can easily lead to a miscalculation this is a risk you shouldn t take.

Time Saving

Fancy a holiday? Want to spend time with your family? Accountants are the best way to save yourself the pain of working overtime just to calculate your finances. As a sole trader, you have to take complete control of your business and when you are not there, your finances should still be looked after.

With an accountant by your side, you will benefit massively and you won t have to invest so much of your free time into monitoring finances. You have the freedom to do whatever you want and if you decide to take time away from work, we can keep all incomings and outgoing in check whilst you are away.

You shouldn t have to spend your time figuring out what payments will be made whilst your away. With the help of an accountant, they can maintain spending and notify you of any unexpected transactions to keep your mind at ease.

Useful Experience

In 2016, there were 4.2 million non-employing businesses. That means that 76% of businesses in the UK were sole traders and no matter what industry you are in, you have a lot of competition. When you are starting up your business, it is always important to seek the advice of an accountant, who can ensure you invest the right money in the right places to make your business succeed.

Although you may be able to plough through your first year, only 4 in 10 small businesses make it through to their fifth year. With only a 40% chance of survival, it could be time to invest slightly more money into an accountant, who has the experience of working with previous businesses and making them succeed.
