Churchill Knight & Associates Ltd specialises in providing accountancy services for contractors and freelancers in the UK. Our journey started in 1998 when John Payne, an IT Contractor at the time, grew frustrated at the lack of contractor-focused financial services. As a result, he and his wife Louise set up Churchill Knight & Associates Ltd – one of the UK’s first contractor accountants.
Over 20 years’ later, Churchill Knight & Associates Ltd has earned a reputation as one of the leading contractor accountants in the marketplace. This is thanks to both our dedication to customer service and our commitment to compliance.
