Is it worth hiring an accountant?



New Member
Hi there my name is Isabel, and I just thought I’d introduce myself quickly! If I’m honest I’m really quite new to this whole forum thing, but a couple of friends use them a lot and praise how great the community and business advice is! So I figured I’d just give it a go as I’m a contractor and it’s always great to have a support team behind you when you move around jobs a lot! If I’m honest I’ve got a whole host of questions I’d love advice for aha, but I suppose I better start off with just the one! Essentially a few of my fellow ‘contractor’ friends have been starting to use an accountant to manage their finances, because they worked out they weren’t getting the most out of their pay or something. I was just wondering really if other contractors or consultants used any contractor accountants? I’ve been thinking about hiring one, but if I’m honest I didn’t want to get one if it wasn’t worth it. Does anyone have any experience with one? If so I’d love to know people’s opinions and thoughts. My friend sent me over a link to the contractor accountants called 3 Wise Bears that he uses - do these services sound like the sort of thing that other people have has experience with? They do sound good and it has made me deeply consider investing in an accountant but I just wanted a few other people’s opinions first! Thank you everyone! And sorry if I’ve rambled - I’m not entirely sure how long these posts are supposed to be so sorry if I’ve gone on a bit!

Does anyone have any better answer or ideas regarding this?, If so, It will be good to share your thoughts and we can discuss it!. Also, you can read more about the accountant for business taxes here, I hope you get a clear idea about it!

Yes, obvisally when you will hire an accountant it will save your time and also money, an accountant will manage you all business and you can spend your all-time in generating new business instead of managing expenses and other things.

To be honest, it depends what you require. For instance a mate of mine did his taxes himself and saved him bit of money. I think if you run a business its perhaps better to get an accountant, my dad has a online outlet and wanted to grow his business not just get the accounts done and think he got a company called Pearl Accountants to help him do the accounts and grow the business. So yeah, if your looking for business accountants then I'd say get an accountant otherwise why not save the money!
