Financial Advisors

As a contractor it’s likely that your take home pay is more than that of a normal employee. As such it’s important that you take advice on how to best manage your finances and make your earnings work harder for you.

Whether you’re thinking about short or long term planning, it’s important to know what options are open to you and start planning sooner rather than later. Financial advisors can offer advice on the following;

  • Pensions
  • Various insurance policies, including Relevant Life Plans and Executive Income Protection policies, which are both tax deductible
  • Investments
  • Mortgages, specialising in mortgages for contractors
  • Inheritance tax planning
  • Private Medical Insurance

Here at Dolan Accountancy we work with two financial advisors to offer you a choice when managing your money.

Wardour Investments

Wardour Investments are independent advisors who do not have allegiance to any insurance or investment companies, so you can be sure that the advice you receive will be to benefit you. With a solid performance, Wardour offer clients a full range of pensions, investments, contractor mortgages and even private medical insurance.

Why Dolan Accountancy?

Dolan Accountancy was set up by Simon J Dolan, the man behind the well-known brand SJD Accountancy. With over 25 years experience in the contracting marketing, Dolan Accountancy has the heritage, reputation and credibility you can trust. Working closely with our sister company, Contractor Umbrella, it means we can offer one low cost, fixed fee package at £95 + VAT per month. This gives you the flexibility of using both our Limited Company Accountancy Services and our award winning Umbrella Service, for one inclusive cost. We don’t believe in tiered packages or hidden extra fees, instead we aim to give you everything you need, including:

  • Free Company Formation – This is where it all begins. Once you have decided on an available name, we will form your company free of charge (if using our accountancy services) and it will be ready for you to use in as little as three hours.
  • Free use of Contractor Umbrella – With changes in Public Sector IR35 Legislation we understand that sometimes you are required to contract via an umbrella company. We will keep your limited company ticking over, while you work margin free via our sister company, Contractor Umbrella.
  • A Dedicated Accountant – Your accountant will be there for any company or personal tax advice that you require. We will never outsource work, even to internal teams.
  • Free Access to FreeAgent – The founder behind the multi award winning FreeAgent platform was one of Simon’s first clients, therefore it only seems fitting that we offer all of our clients access to FreeAgent, free of charge.
  • Free Business Banking – We have decided to waive our commission so our clients can use Tide free of charge for the first year.
  • Unlimited IR35 Status Reviews – We will review all of your contracts for IR35 purposes and provide you with our professional opinion as to its status.
  • Free Registered and Director’s Service Office Address – Sometimes you just don’t want your home address on display at Companies House. When you sign up to our accountancy services, we will offer the use of our address as an alternative.
  • Your Business and Personal Taxation Needs – This includes Company Accounts, Director’s Personal Tax Return, VAT Returns, Payroll, Corporation Tax and Dividend advice, to name just a few.
  • Same day payments- We offer same day payments as standard providing funds are received into our account by 9am, for no additional fee.
