It is often a given that if you need an in-house bookkeeper, you try and find an employee to add to the payroll. However, have you thought of the benefits of using a self-employed bookkeeper?
Here are a few:
- No employer’s NIC
- No pension contributions
- Save on other staff costs – subsistence, travel, insurance etc.
- No statutory sick pay or holiday pay – only pay for the days worked
- No drawn out terminations; don’t like your bookkeeper, change them
