Accounting services for Freelancers

Freelance working is not quite the same as being a contractor. As a freelancer you will tend to work on a number of projects for different clients at the same time. Contractors, though, are usually contracted to one client for a specific period of time.


Freelancing is a great way of ‘testing the water’ when working for yourself, without having to give up your full-time job.

How do you want to work?

Choosing your way of working is often the biggest step. Many contractors choose to form their own business, working as a sole trader or setting up their own limited company, but this isn’t right for everyone. Plenty of others decide they’d rather join an umbrella company or get paid directly through a recruitment agency.

Often, making this decision is a question of balancing the risk and responsibilities you’re willing to take on. Some options will have lower operating costs than others, but they may also offer less protection if things go wrong.

Our free guide to choosing your working options is a good place to start. It’s full of useful insights into running your own business, however you decide to go about it, and it also explains how Brookson can help you stay on top of your accounts.
