Accountancy Services for

IT Contractors and Freelancers

Since the launch of the BBC Micro from Acorn in 1981, the solo programmer – often a freelancer or contractor – has become a staple of British entrepreneurial spirit and creativity.


Even today, freelance web developers, app programmers, computer security consultants, digital forensics specialists, graphic designers, software testers, and other professionals make up a significant proportion of the UK’s IT industry.

Specialists for Specialists

Here at PaperRocket, we concentrate on the intricacies of accountancy for contractors and freelancers. We recognise that the nature of the freelance job makes for complicated accounting and variable income, and we can help you through the various pitfalls.


To really handle your accountancy needs you want someone who understands the complexities of your day-to-day finances and can most easily help you keep on top of taxes and other outgoings.


We can be there for you from the start onward; we offer three tiers of service providing different levels of support and aimed at different budgets which a fledgling contractor can progress upward through until they find their level, or where an established freelancer might choose the one that seems best and stick with it happily.


We'll even help you if you're looking at becoming a limited company.

Make the Best Use of your Time

If there’s anything that everyone in the IT industry will agree on, it’s that a job handled by a specialist will be completed faster and better than a job given to someone who just knows the basics.


Your time is valuable and can be best spent doing work for your clients at your hourly rate, rather than losing a long time to handle your accounts when we could get it done faster and better for you.


If you want us to help you, you can get in touch here, on the phone at 0800 024 8760, or by email at [email protected].
