Specialist accountancy support and services for creative freelancers and contractors
Accountancy firm arrives at MediaCityUK to help freelancers get to grips with their finances
Freelancers needing more up to date information on their finances have prompted specialist accountants, Brookson, to open new offices at MediaCityUK.
Read the press release about our arrival at MediaCity.
Research carried out by the company, in partnership with YouGov, found more than a quarter (34 per cent) of self-employed professionals in the North of England believe having more up-to-date financial information on their business would help them make better decisions.
Brookson will be offering a walk-in service from its space at The Greenhouse in MediaCityUK where freelancers can come and receive a free financial health check as well as expert advice and support.
The North West company, which represents more than 9,000 freelancers many of which work in the creative and media sector, has opened the office to encourage self-employed professionals to take stock of their finances and avoid unexpectedly large tax bills.
Martin Hesketh, managing director of Brookson, said:
“From our research, we found self-employed professionals want to keep abreast of their financial situation but are not always given the means in which to do so. We also found 70 per cent of self-employed professionals from the North of England are not informed of how much they can safely take out of their business at any given time.
“These shocking statistics are proof more needs to be done to assist freelancers when it comes to effectively managing their finances.
“Our approach to providing accountancy services to freelancers is very much focused on proactivity and by delivering up-to-date financial information on freelancers’ finances, we’re giving them the tools to make better decisions on their situation which will ultimately optimise their financial performance.
“More importantly, by removing the headache associated with getting finances, expenses and invoices in order, we’re freeing up the time spent on these tasks and allowing freelancers to get on with what they do best.”
"There is an easy way to work safely and compliant - and it's right on your doorstep at The GreenHouse, MediaCityUK"
