Do I need an Isle of Man Accountant ?

Aren’t Accountants Expensive ?

A good accountant will save you money. 

This is because common mistakes like late VAT returns, missed corporate returns and incorrect or missed monthly employment returns all attract substantial financial penalties. A good Isle of Man accountant will take care of all of this for you. 

Also your accountant will keep on top of your monthly bookkeeping, so you can see exactly how your business is performing financially – in real time. This will help you make better business decisions and leave you with more time to deal with your existing clients and marketing to attract new ones. 

Finally, a good accountant will be a constant source of invaluable advice and guidance on  all aspects of your business journey.

How much does an Isle of Man Accountant cost ?

Small businesses like sole traders should budget around £100+vat per month for their bookkeeping / accounting. Monthly fees for larger businesses with employees are likely to range from £175+vat to £500+vat depending on the number of employees and the complexity of the business. This compares very favourably with the cost of part time internal bookkeepers.
