RICHMOND HILL, ENGLAND, February 06, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Business information publisher, Contract Eye Limited, has launched a new microsite, aimed at UK-based IT contractors who need to hire the services of a specialist accounting firm.
The new site, ITCA (IT Contractor Accountants) provides no-nonsense, concise guides to limited company taxation, and a series of tips to help contractors compare the services of prospective accountancy firms.
ITCA also provides a checklist of questions to ask accountants before signing up, to ensure that contractors know exactly what service they should expect.
James Leckie, the site's editor, explained why his company decided to launch the specialist site:
"Over the past decade, the number of specialist IT contractor accountancy firms has skyrocketed. Web technology has helped to keep costs down, enabling more and more companies to enter the marketplace."
"It is easy for a new entrant to provide a good-looking website, together with cutting-edge online accountancy services, but how can contractors know what overall service to expect, and how can they accurately compare providers?"
"We created ITCA to help answer the most commonly asked questions by contractors who need to find a limited company accountant. "
"Our team has been editing contracting news sites since 1998, and given that most small business owners view their accountant as their most trusted advisor, we hope that our new site will help would-be and existing contractors find the right service provider without having to learn the hard way."
When asked which were the most important factors contractors should consider when selecting a company accountant, Leckie explained that customer service was always top of the list.
"Nothing is more important to a contracting business than maintaining accurate accounting records, so the firms with the best reputations in the market are well-known for providing a reliable, consistent service. The top firms also provide good quality service in a timely, personal manner, resulting in 'word of mouth' recommendations by existing clients."
"Although they should always compare fees between prospective suppliers, I suggest that contractors make sure they know exactly what is included in the headline monthly fee, otherwise they may be presented with an unwelcome request for payment when least expected."
