For a fixed monthly fee, starting at just £79 per month, you can benefit from our expertise. And we use our own secure technology to allow you to access your data and messages 24/7. You don’t have to become a bookkeeper to run a company.
We provide a high-quality, specialist and personal service to UK contractors and freelancers. We combine clear, expert advice and great customer service, seamlessly with the simplicity, control and peace of mind delivered by our market-leading, bespoke online portal. A complete, specialist accounting and tax solution, with simple, modern communication tools and an all-inclusive fixed fee. Comprehensive expert tax advice, personal service, a full range of support activities and market-leading technology all add up to the truly complete contractor accountancy package, from only £79 pm.
How do we do it
Comprehensive expert advice
Whether you’re new to contracting, or a seasoned pro. We’ll clearly explain everything you need to know and help with everything you need to set up. We’ll make sure your affairs are structured in the most tax-efficient way possible and we’ll keep reviewing your account to make sure it stays that way. We’re qualified, we’re experienced and we’re specialists – you can relax and trust that everything is taken care of and your earnings are being maximised.
High-quality personal service
We’re serious about this. All our clients are contractors and freelancers, so our systems and processes are geared to providing the service you need. You’ll always speak to a person with knowledge of your account and we’ll return your calls and emails the same day (if received by 4pm). Everything you need from an accountant to manage a limited company and ensure that all accounts, HMRC and Companies House returns are filed electronically, on time, plus the comfort of support and tax advice when you need it.
Simple time-saving systems
Our easy to use online portal makes it simple, quick and virtually full-proof to manage your affairs. Use the portal to enter time, claim expenses and mileage and raise invoices, whenever convenient. The system calculates your payslip, tax liabilities, dividends and expenses to claim - every time you raise an invoice. You’ll be able to see what you can take and how much tax you owe, whenever you want. It’s not a bookkeeping package but a tailored piece of software designed to make the life of a contractor as simple as possible. Everything’s in one secure place and there’s no need for paperwork or spreadsheets. It will even remind you when something needs doing or paying. If you don’t want to use our portal, select our Gold package and we’ll handle this element of bookkeeping for you.
More and more people in the freelance sector are moving to specialist accountants with modern contractor/freelancer-focussed tools… for expert tailored advice, excellent customer service, 24/7 online control, added value functions and great value for money, why not join them?
Supporting contractors since 1994
We have worked with most agencies in the UK, established and grew one of the fastest growing umbrella companies in the UK prior to a trade sale and deliberately contracted back to deliver a comprehensive high end service to freelance contractors. We look to work in partnership with our clients so no ties just respect both ways.
We don't just do the boring things, we do clever things for you too. Legislation has grown over the nearly 20 years we have been offering services to clients so we have become expert in accounting, timesheet management, IR35, NMW, WTD, RTI, you name it, there's an acronym for it.
Orange & Gold comprises a team of people who have almost all worked in the business for at least five years, so we know all clients by name. We keep you in the picture at all times and have developed sophisticated systems to record all issues, actions and points of contact. We will respond to you the same day.
Sorry to leave you guys as I have found your service top-notch throughout. I have a couple of ex-colleagues shortly moving from full-time employment to contracting - needless to say I'll be recommending you to them.
I must say I was really impressed with the knowledgeable and straightforward way you spoke about these and I realised this is exactly the type of simple guidance I've been missing with my current firm
