iPhone application helps Contractors demystify Tax
SJD Accountancy, the UK’s largest accountants for contractors with more than 10,000 limited company contractor clients, first launched its ‘Contractor Tax Calculator’ back in December 2009.
Since the launch of this free handy little tax calculator app over 11,000 downloads have been made, the app has been ranked in the top 100 finance applications of the year, and it was most recently featured in ‘Exchange’ Orange telecom’s business customer magazine.
Two years on SJD Accountancy have re-vamped, upgraded and re-launched this clever app. The free to download Contractor Tax Calculator iPhone application helps contractors to work out what tax might be due for any given daily rate. The upgrade allows users to vary the length of time for any given contract and also arrange a free meeting to discuss their contracting and tax plans.
With the record levels of permanent job cuts and drive for companies to use contract and temporary workers, it’s no surprise the tax calculator has been so popular.
Going limited, becoming a contractor and managing your tax affairs can be a daunting thought, however with the help of a good accountant it needed be too stressful. SJD Accountancy has extensive advice on their website about becoming a contractor, tax and career advice to help make the move from the world of the permanently employed to contracting as smooth as possible.
Search for ‘Contractor Calculator’ on their iPhone in the App Store. SJD Accountancy is also planning on launching the app on both Android phones and iPads.
