Self-employed tax return service

If you run a business without partners, and not as a limited company, then you are self employed and will need to declare your earnings through a tax return to HMRC.

Hi, I’m Simon.

I’m one of the Directors of Fixed Fee Tax Returns. One of the most common questions I get asked is “Am I self-employed, or not?” If you run your own business through any structure other than a limited company, the answer is almost certainly “Yes” – which means you’ll need to complete a tax return.

Fees for self-employed tax returns

Our lowest fixed fee for a self-employed tax return is based on you providing us with all the information we need, in good shape, when we need it. Other than that fairly reasonable request, there are no hidden charges, conditions or catches.

When you think about it, that’s a pretty amazing price to pay to have a fully-qualified UK accountant do the fiddly stuff on your behalf. That’s doubly true when you consider that we’ll almost certainly reduce your tax bill by more than the fee we charge. And, of course, that fee is tax deductible, too.

Starting at £160
(plus VAT)

Our fees for Self-employed

Self-employed
Business turnover of less than £85,000 from £160* to £510*
Business turnover more than £85,000 Please contact us for a fixed fee quote

* If your expenses are £1000 or less and you are claiming the trading allowance then the fee of £160 will apply. If your expenses are more than £1000 then our fee will be from £510.
