Sole trader tax returns service

If you run a business without partners, and not as a limited company, then you’re a sole trader and will need to declare your earnings through a tax return to HMRC.

Hi, I’m Kevin.

I’m one of the Directors of Fixed Fee Tax Returns. Sole traders are the backbone of British business, from tradesmen to retailers and every point in between. When you’re personally responsible for delivering the bulk of the work, tax returns are just another distraction you could do without. So, let us help.

Fees for our sole trader tax return service

Our lowest fixed fee for sole trader tax returns 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 £170
(plus VAT)

Tax help for sole traders

It all starts with a conversation so we can work out whether you do have to submit a tax return as a sole trader. Once that’s confirmed, we’ll take over so you can scratch your tax return off your to-do list – and focus on making money.

From tax calculation to form-filling, we’ll look after all the most stressful, time-consuming aspects of getting your tax return done.

More than that, we’ll also make sure your tax bill is as low as it should be. Too often, sole traders doing their own tax returns, or working with unqualified accountants, miss out on claiming valuable reliefs and allowances. That’s why, more often than not, people who switch to us make an immediate tax saving.

We’ll do everything quickly, keeping it all online for the sake of efficiency, communicating with you by phone and email to gather information without wasting your time.

It’s all about convenience, clarity and quality, leaving you free to get on with what you love doing, and what pays the bills.
