Accounting & Tax Assistance For Locum Workers

Many healthcare professionals work as locums at some stage in their career. This type of work often mixes salaried and self-employed work and therefore those accounts may present their own set of challenges. Our experience allows us to provide locums with a wealth of advice ranging from tax and National Insurance obligations to providing guidance and assisting those looking to form a limited company to offer their services.

Cottons are able to provide guidance for both established Locum workers and those looking to start.

"Since starting out in IT in 1988 first as a sole trader and later as a Limited Company, Cottons have provided me with accountancy services through to winding up the business and my retirement almost 30 years later. They have always provided excellent advice helping the business navigate through company compliance and tax planning as well as preparing family tax returns. I have no hesitation in recommending them for their friendly, approachable and professional service. "​

I changed from my previous accountants to Cottons about ten years ago and have never looked back. Nick Warne and his excellent team have proven time and again to me that I definitely made the right choice! Thoroughly recommended without reservation!

My company has been a client of Cottons for a number of years and since joining they have always been totally approachable and professional. My previous accountants had caused me wasted time and stress. Cottons reconciled all the company issues in a very short amount of time and streamlined the business. I totally recommend them.
