Accountancy Services for Project Management Contractors from SJD
If you’re working as a contractor through your own Limited company, there are a wide range of financial issues to consider, so you must give yourself enough time to manage your tax affairs properly – so you don’t pay too much or too little tax, or miss a deadline and face penalties from HM Revenue and Customs. So even though you are a Project Manager yourself, you might want to look for some specialist external support!
