Freelance Video Editors

Working from contract to contract as a freelance professional is very different from a standard 9-5 job in every way that matters – especially financially.


With payment amounts, expenses claims, and the time taken to receive payment varying from contract to contract and job to job, a video editor working freelance has a wide amount of freedom but their books present a challenge to a typical accountant – let alone the editor in question.

Navigating Your Accounts

Working as a contractor video editor you’ll already know just how strange your tax returns can look, and how many obscure rules can affect your bottom line at the end of the tax year – and at any other point.


You’ll be used to setting aside your best estimates of your current tax obligations month by month and finding out that you’d over- or under- estimated when it’s time to settle up.


And you may have engaged an accountant in the past to handle all this and found that, because they’re used to more typical books with steady incomings and outgoings, they’ve missed one of those obscure rules and woefully miscalculated.


When your clients need video edited professionally, they call in a specialist – you.


It’s time for you to do the same.

Specialist Accountancy for Contract & Freelance Professionals

Freelance professionals – like video editors – present a completely different set of rules and assumptions to other businesses and individuals when preparing, updating, and using their accounts.


A typical accountant, through no fault of their own, may simply forget or overlook some of these rules – but at PaperRocket Accounting, all of our accountants handle these rules, edge cases, and special circumstances every day.


We have the training, the experience, and the practice to handle the accounts of freelance or contractor video editors.

What We Offer

We provide three tiers of support for our clients according to their needs and budget. We can also help you make the switch if you’re dissatisfied with an accountancy practice that doesn’t understand your needs, and we offer support for clients looking to incorporate as a limited company.


Whatever your goals, you need an accountant who can support you as you build toward them, and we’re standing by to help you on your road to success.
