Benefits for Creatives

At No Worries, we understand the unique challenges and opportunities that come with being a freelancer in the creative business, and often our new clients are yet to discover accounting. We are here to help you navigate the ever-changing landscape of tax and accounting so that you can focus on what you do best, create! Some clients work through creative agencies while other supply services direct to their end client.

With that in mind, below is a taste of the kind of services specifically tailored to the needs of creative sector professionals you can expect at No Worries when we work as accountants for creatives.

Assistance with Business Planning

When you become a client of No Worries, you are assigned a personal dedicated accountant who will get to know you and your business inside out. This way, we can provide the most relevant and tailored advice possible to help you reach your goals.
With a good understanding of your financial situation, your personal accountant can help you plan for future growth and manage your tax returns and finances in a more efficient way. Knowing where you are means you can stay in control of where you want to go!

Understanding your Tax Obligations

Self-employed creatives are often unaware of the many tax deductions they can claim. Your personal accountant can help you with your personal tax return by claiming all the deductions you are entitled to thereby minimising your tax liability. This includes advice on how to structure your business, remuneration planning, and pension and investment planning.
We can also, if you wish, help you personally with your self-assessment tax return so that you can be confident that you are meeting your personal tax obligations and taking advantage of any creative industry tax reliefs or allowances that you may be entitled to. Also, we can help you plan ahead to minimise your tax bill in the future. If you work through your own limited company we can also help ensure you are claiming all your business deductions that help reduce your corporation tax.

With unlimited, online secure access to your accounts via our accounting software, you will have at your fingertips, the ability to view your businesses financial processes anywhere, anytime which is enough to get anyone’s creative juices flowing. Uploading receipts, creating invoices and automatic bank feeds are standard. But you will also be able to view accurate and up to date finical reports, outstanding invoices, and your tax affairs in real time. We also offer multicurrency support.
All of this means you can free up your time to focus on what you do best – creative work. Your personal accountant can also save you money by ensuring that your financial affairs are in order and that you are claiming all the deductions you are entitled to.
