A Summary of Our Services
Churchill Knight & Associates Ltd was founded in 1998 as a specialist contractor accountant. Since the first day of operation, our priority has always been to provide leading accountancy and payroll services for freelancers and contractors in the United Kingdom. Therefore, as the market has changed and developed over time, we have added additional services to our professional portfolio to ensure all of your candidates’ requirements are met.
Churchill Knight operates in full compliance with HMRC legislation and has never offered or promoted a tax avoidance scheme. Your agency and your candidates will be in safe hands with our highly trained accountants.
Here is a summary of the main accountancy and payroll services we can provide your candidates.
What Services Do We Specialise In?
- Limited Company – Operating through a limited company is usually the most tax efficient way for contractors to legally maximise their take home pay. Therefore, with careful tax planning and ongoing support from a dedicated Churchill Knight Account Manager, your candidates will be able to benefit from becoming the Director of their own limited company without having to worry about the complicated administration – because we will take care of a majority of it for them.
- Umbrella Company – Some of your candidates may be better suited to Churchill Knight Umbrella. Our fully compliant and expertly run umbrella company will help your candidates with their PAYE whilst providing them with a number of useful benefits including insurances, Employee Benefits and discounts at hundreds of leading stores, restaurants and UK-wide attractions.
- CIS Limited – If your candidates are working in construction, the chances are they are CIS registered and they have their own Unique Tax Reference (UTR). However, even if they don’t, we are here to help them get all their financial affairs in order so that they have nothing to worry about. Operating through a limited company in construction is probably the best option for your candidates to legally maximise their take home pay.
- CIS Sole Trader – Some of your candidates will work in the construction industry but will want to remain sole traders. Our CIS Sole Trader service is ideal for these candidates and will ensure they get paid on time and that all of their taxes have been sent to HMRC on account. This way, they won’t face any unexpected tax bills in the future and if they have overpaid their tax, we can help them get the extra back by completing their personal tax return, as well as including insurances if required (personal tax return can be included in our margin, or it can be purchased separately. Please contact us to find out more information). Our CIS Sole Trader service can be used by candidates who are and are not CIS registered.
- Small Business – Our professional and highly trained accountants work with many small businesses and act as their accountants. If any of your candidates are small business owners and have a few employees on their books – please let us know because we can provide them with an industry-leading accountancy service. We are also the accountants for dozens of recruitment agencies around the UK – just like yours. Therefore, if you are interested in finding out how Churchill Knight can save your recruitment agency money, please get in contact with us today!
