Accountants for Creatives

Working in the creative industry? Be it a copywriter, design manager, graphic designer, or anything else in the creative field, the right side of your brain is more likely to be dominant; this is where the magic happens. All that imagination, inventiveness and outside of the box thinking, really sets you apart.

How to work as a creative

Unfortunately, as a creative, it’s not all brand books and portfolios, you have to contend with the boring work too. Payroll, corporation tax return and filing your personal tax return are all part and parcel of freelancing.

Here at SJD, we can help you get on top of the numbers. Be it working through a limited company, as a sole trader or even as an umbrella employee. Why don’t you leave the left brain work to us?

Why should creatives appoint an accountant?

Well, the simple answer is it saves you time. Time is so important, especially as a creative. We all know the pain of last-minute ‘small’ tweaks, vague briefs and the client deciding to go with version four when you’re on version fourteen! Appointing an accountant can help free up the time you spend on your accounts.

Not only that, it’s how much you value your time. For example, if you estimate your time to be worth £50 an hour and it takes you 8 hours a month for you to manage your accounts, that’s a cost of £400 per month. Our packages start at £40 per month, so it could be considered better value for your time and money to appoint an accountant.
