how much accountants charge for tax returnsOn average, an accountant will charge around £300 to file your tax return, depending on what kind of business you’re running. It’s a bit cheaper if you’re an independent freelancer looking for help with a Self-Assessment Tax Return, and more expensive if you’re a small or large business.

This may not sound like an extortionate amount of money, but you have to keep in mind over factors, such as:

  • This article is about Sole Trader fees. This article is better if you’re a Limited company looking for accountant fees.
  • The business you’re missing out from taking the day off to see your accountant.
  • Expenses incurred from time taken out of work.
  • Stress from gathering documents required for a tax return.

Not all of these will affect your wallet, but they can affect your health and well-being. For some businesses this is simply how it’s done, but have you ever considered a change for the better?

Self-Assessment Tax Return

For a Self-Assessment Tax Return, accounts will charge somewhere in the area of £250+. The variation depends on how difficult your tax returns are. Self-Assessments can be done without the help of an accountant, but having one will guarantee it’s done properly.

Since you’re running a business, you probably already have an accountant. However, if you don’t you should seriously consider getting one.
