Dancing Accountant

Someone who knows the business & the taxman


I can hopefully also save you a lot of money & a lot of tax stress !!!


I’m a qualified FCMA(Retired) Accountant of 30+ years – And experienced in dealing with my own Accounts/Taxation matters for all my dance activities ---- In 2005 I took VR at work – And as part of going full time into the dance business, I can now offer an accounting service to dancing folk in the UK (Instructors & Choreographers) – I have helped out various sole trader businesses/friends in the past, but going forward I would like to focus/specialise more on the dance business.


I offer a completely confidential service - To give advice as & when required (Especially the best way to keep your records – There are many short cuts to keeping this easy for you !!) & then to build up your annual records into a set of accounts acceptable to the Inland Revenue.


Contact me if you are interested – If you keep a reasonable record of your activities the cost of this service – For a day of my time to review everything & pull together a P&L Account that you can include in your own tax return would be around £125 the first year & £100 thereafter under normal circumstances (Covers one days work which is usually enough)


The final rate can be negotiable between us if there is significantly more or less to do than the norm - This will depend on how well you keep your own weekly records – Your input to me could be anything from the proverbial brown box full of income records/receipts and/or your own weekly record sheets through to a well kept Small Business Ledger Book or a computer spreadsheet/Accounting package – And part of what we’d do the first time would be to work out how best for you to keep your records the following year that suites your own business & circumstances.


Don’t wait until the next tax deadline – Contact me to discuss how you are keeping your records & how I could help you when the time comes – You are probably spending way too much time & money on your bookkeeping than actually needed ……..Or maybe you are not doing enough & don’t wait for the tax man to catch up with you !!!
