Ainsworth & Co, Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors.


Our Contractors Accounting and Tax Service includes Limited Company Formation, Financial Accounts Preparation and Filing, Corporation Tax Filing, Payroll/PAYE and Software Supply & Support.

We particularly specialise in Accountants, IT Contractors and Management Consultants.

Let us see if we can help you. We can register your business straight away with HMRC and get you started on your bookkeeping and records. We can also create a Limited Company for you.

We supply a free spreadsheet for your bookkeeping which estimates your tax liability, and provide the necessary training.

Or if you prefer, we are also able to help you choose the right accounting software and train you if required. We particularly recommend QuickBooks, QuickBooks Online and FreeAgent.

If you started a business as a Sole Trader between 6th April 2015 and 5th April 2016 the online filing deadline for Self Assessment is 31st January 2017.

If you are trading as a Limited Company the timing for the first company accounts and tax return depends when the company was first formed.

Our monthly fee for limited companies is on the right of this page.
