Our proactive advice helps you get more from your limited company

Matt, our COO (and former contractor), talks about our approach to pro-active service

Whilst all accountants will document your past, here at inniAccounts our advice will help you make the most of today, and prepare for the future. Because we’ve invested in our people, technology and processes, our team spends less time on routine tasks, and more time advising clients.

This means every quarter your company will get a thorough health check to spot tax-saving opportunities and issues, and we proactively check your payments have cleared with HMRC, giving you complete peace of mind.

Your accounts are reviewed regularly, and we’ll talk through your upcoming plans and goals. We’ll give you advice on strategies, available allowances and reliefs, and make sure you’re ready for changes in the year ahead. Our advice helps you get the most from your company.

Plus, as a firm that’s a recognised authority on independent professionals, you can be confident that we’ll keep you well ahead of any tax and legislation changes, so you can focus on building a business that’s fit for your future.

Exclusive resources and tools to help you get outside, and stay outside IR35

Step-by-step guides to build your knowledge and help you secure outside IR35 contracts

April 2021 has ushered in a new era for IR35 and off-payroll working: the opportunity to work outside IR35 no longer happens by chance.

Clients need to have confidence in you, your skills, and your working practices. It’s more important than ever before to increase your knowledge, demonstrate professionalism, and be proactive in pushing for the IR35 status you deserve. 

With inniAccounts, you’ll get access to our exclusive and extensive IR35 Action Planner. We’ve translated our IR35 expertise into jargon-free, step-by-step articles, videos and checklists to sharpen your practices and increase your IR35 confidence, allowing you to lead proactive and meaningful status conversations with clients.

Fantastic service, hugely knowledgeable, and leading the industry in fighting for their customers. Definitely recommend

Our IR35 Action Planner helps you to sharpen your practices and increase your IR35 confidence, so you can engage in constructive conversations with end clients.

Helping you prepare for audits, because once your contract starts, IR35 doesn’t stop

HMRC are now proactively enforcing IR35. As a result, end clients are responding with internal IR35 spot checks and audits. You’ll need to be prepared for this throughout your engagement: the last thing you want is for your status to change part-way through your contract.

That’s why, in conjunction with a leading employment status lawyer, we’ve created our exclusive IR35 assessment tool. You’ll get unlimited access, allowing you to regularly evaluate your working practices to identify areas of risk, and record evidence to support your determination, helping you maintain your outside IR35 status.

New to IR35? Start here

Learning the nuances of tax and employment legislation is probably not at the top of your to-do list. But the topic of IR35 is unavoidable as it can have a big impact on your tax bill, with significant consequences for getting it wrong.

That’s why we’ve created our introductory guides and videos, and they’re free for everyone to use. They’re very popular, easy to read and watch, and designed to help you get up to speed with all things IR35.

Award-winning tech makes running your business effortless

Our exclusive, much-loved app saves you tax and time

When it comes to running your business, most other accountants will make you use either:

  1. A clunky spreadsheet,
  2. A clunky portal, or,
  3. General accounting software (with various add-on apps)

Of course, they’re good enough and they work for many people, but they’re far from perfect. This is the spark that led our co-founders to start inniAccounts.

At the heart of our service is our brilliant, cloud accounting app, tailor-made for contractors and consultants. It’s effortless to use, and it’s packed with time and tax-saving features you won’t find anywhere else.

What I find really handy is when I log in, my dashboard automatically forecasts my ‘free cash’, due taxes etc. so enables me to plan ahead. I wish I moved accountant earlier.

LiveCash is an award-winning feature that calculates your taxes in real-time, showing the impact of tax planning, and minimising the risk of overspending.

Everything you need to run your business, in one place

With inniAccounts, you can track time, expenses and mileage from within the app, and it will automatically claim tax back for you. When you’re ready to pay dividends, it will generate the right legal paperwork, and it has innovative safeguards to stop you from accidentally paying illegal dividends.

Our clients love our app, and apparently so does the Queen (she gave us a Queen’s Award for Innovation for our groundbreaking, real-time tax engine).

We have an in-house team of skilled software engineers, who keep the app up to date with the latest tax changes (such as Making Tax Digital). The team is also constantly releasing enhancements with most of the ideas coming from our clients, such as live multi-currency support, AI expense categorisation, bank integrations, and more!

A friendly team, delivering personal service and industry-leading satisfaction

We’re bucking the trend of call-centre mega-accountants 

We’ve witnessed the meteoric rise of mega-accountants, boasting tens of thousands of clients. Inspired by call centres, they have a ruthless commitment to the bottom line.

Here at inniAccounts, we have a ruthless commitment to client satisfaction – which is industry-leading. You’ll be supported by a small, passionate team, who believe in personal service and high-quality advice. Your call won’t be held in a queue, we don’t outsource support, and we value empowerment, not escalation.

Whilst we’re not the cheapest accountancy firm in the market, our slightly higher fees means we can afford to deliver a much greater standard of service.

Our team is skilled in delivering brilliant service, and we prioritise client satisfaction above all else

Instead, you’ll experience truly personal service

You’ll get a named account manager, like Jan, who will be your first point of contact for day to day questions and technical support. They’re well-trained and friendly – we find our clients have great relationships with their account managers.

If you have a more complex question that needs support from an accountant, then your account manager will put you straight through. There’s no need to book an appointment. Our accountants have a wide range of experience, and they love challenging questions, so don’t be afraid to ask!

Not only can you be confident in the knowledge, professionalism and reliability of our whole team, but they’re approachable too. Our clients love how skilled they are in making complex subjects straightforward and accessible.

Meet the inniAccounts team

My account manager Jan is always just a quick email away from answering all my questions, and forwarding any queries onto an accountant if necessary. I always get a helpful, timely response which has been key in helping me understand what I need to do in order to manage my business successfully!

Founded by contractors who built their dream accountancy service

Matt and James explain the origins of inniAccounts

inniAccounts was founded by a group of passionate contractors and consultants, frustrated by poor quality advice, slow service and lack of technology adoption.

The concept was conceived around a kitchen table and the co-founder’s mandate was simple: to build their dream accountancy service for the lifestyle they loved.

Whilst the co-founders have less hair than they used to, their passion for contracting and consulting hasn’t receded. These days they continue to drive inniAccounts forward, ensuring it remains the best choice for those making the leap from permanent employment. They also draw upon their experience, knowledge and influence to promote and support the independent professional sector.

The champions of contractors, and a leading authority and influencer

Passionate about the fair treatment of contractors, consultants and freelancers

As you get to know inniAccounts, you’ll discover that we’re proactive advocates for contractors, consultants and freelancers. We’re actively involved in panels and think-tanks, and our passion lies in ensuring that independent professionals are treated fairly. 

We regularly commission research, support journalists, advise industry leaders and contribute to government consultations. Recently we’ve provided evidence to the House of Lords on the impact of IR35, and co-authored a policy document for the regulation of umbrella companies.

By keeping such a close eye on upcoming legislative changes, and trends in the market, you can be confident that we’ll help you to stay ahead and navigate changes that come along.

James, our CEO, is a recognised authority on the contracting & consulting market, and IR35. He often pops up in the news, and drops into podcasts!

Bringing transparency to the market, and a voice to the community 

Our team launched offpayroll.org.uk to bring transparency to the market, helping contractors and consultants share experiences and find fairer clients, agents and umbrella companies. 

Since then, over 5,500 reviews have been posted, we’ve found and shared over 45,000 outside IR35 contracts, and our LinkedIn posts have been read millions of times. We’ve even launched a popular podcast.

Our unique data is even shared with government policymakers and is regularly featured in national newspapers. Such is the impact of our campaign, our PR manager (a freelancer, naturally!) beat high-profile household brands to win The Drum’s Grand Prix award for PR. We’re now campaigning for the regulation of umbrella companies, having contributed to a policy paper and launched FairScore.

That’s why, citing the work we’ve done in the community, IPSE named us as the winner of their Best Self-Employed Supplier award, thanks to our “strong sense of ethics and a thirst for legacy”.

Our team launched OffPayroll.org.uk, to help contractors share experiences and bring transparency to the market

We, together with our freelance PR consultant, won The Drum PR Grand Prix award for campaigning and contribution to public affairs.

In 2020 we researched and collated evidence of the challenges implementing IR35, which was accepted by the House of Lords Economic Affairs Finance Bill SubCommittee.
