Contracting as an electrician can be a tough gig. Working at one site on one side of the country, and then moving to another site on the other side a couple of months later, are all part and parcel of the job. But, as one of the most desired trades to work in, you know it pays the bills and keeps yours - and everyone else's - lights on.

Working as an electrician

Sometimes you can be working long hours and travelling from place to place isn’t great either. The last thing you want to do when you get home from a long week of work is to do your own accounts. At SJD, we can help you get on top of the numbers. We offer a variety of business accounting solutions. Whatever your accountancy needs - we can help.

Why should electricians appoint an accountant?

As a contracted electrician, you don’t get much time to yourself. Do you really want to add accounting to your to-do list? Also, there are many benefits having a qualified accountant look at your books may have on you financially. There may be tax-efficient strategies you might be overlooking at the moment. Give us a call to see how we can help you today with our expert advice.

Accountancy services for electricians

An electrician can choose from a variety of accountancy services, depending on how you structure your business. Tax returns for individuals and corporations, as well as annual accounts and payroll, are examples of what is offered.

Accountancy packages

Many electricians run their businesses as sole traders. Our monthly fees for sole traders start at £40 plus VAT, but many electricians opt for our Premium plan at £80 + VAT per month. The package includes payroll, PAYE, and monthly profit statements.

Limited company? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered too. If you choose to structure your business this way, we have a range of packages designed for limited companies.
