About Us

First Freelance is one of the UK’s fastest growing contractor accountancy firms. We specialise in tailored accountancy services for freelancers and contractors working in a wide range of sectors across the UK.

Our mission is to support and protect our clients through a perfect combination of technology and expert advice.

Our qualified contractor accountants and tax advisors are specialists in contractor tax, including IR35, which means we are able to help contractors make the most out of their pay and comply with HMRC’s rules.

We work closely with the recruitment sector to make sure the contractors placed by recruiters are set up with a personal service that suits their individual needs.

Our specialist compliance team also provide recruiters with the best advice on the tax laws and legislations affecting them, including the onshore/offshore intermediaries and MSC legislation, amongst others, to ensure all parties in the supply chain are operating efficiently, legally and without risk.

What makes us different?

With a qualified specialist contractor accountant for every contractor and a dedicated point of contact for every agency, our quick response times and unmatched service is guaranteed by an industry leading service level agreement.
