Churchill Knight & Associates Ltd has multiple accountancy packages designed to help contractors find an accountancy service that they need and not to pay for extras that they don’t. Our packages start from only £95 per month.
When you are choosing a contractor accountant, it is imperative that you pick a compliant provider with a proven track record. Make sure they are accredited by reputable UK industry bodies such as Professional Passport and that they are not offering a tax avoidance scheme – and never have done in the past.
Churchill Knight is fully compliant with HMRC and is proud to be accredited by Professional Passport. We are annually audited by Professional Passport to ensure we are operating compliantly.

What if you’d prefer not to start a limited company?
You do not need to start a limited company if you do not want to and there are other options available for contractors. For example, you may decide that you would prefer to get paid via an umbrella company. Umbrella companies will typically charge you less to use their services than a contractor accountant but you will be paid PAYE as if you were a full time employee (removing the opportunity to benefit from careful tax planning and a potential increase in your take home pay).
