• Self-employed or a private landlord – is this you?

    • Shove all your receipts in a bag & your head in the sand? Try to do your books yourself when you’re tired, get confused & make mistakes? Get a partner or family member to do it? Or pay an accountant to correct your mistakes? You’re not alone!
    • Always leave it till the last minute & struggle to meet the 31st January tax deadline? You’re not alone! There were 750,000 late Tax Returns last year. Don’t give your hard-earned cash away in £100 fines (+ 3.25% interest!).
    • No idea what your financial position is right now, or will be in 3 months? Always forget to put money aside for tax? Finding it hard to navigate the ups & downs in your income? You’re not alone!

    You need to take control & keep on top of your finances, before HMRC brings in Making Tax Digital to make you submit 4 Tax Returns a year…

    • There are DIY apps out there but do you really want to spend time on complicated unpaid admin? Say goodbye to DIY!
    • We believe you’re better off doing the things you’re good at, & that the right solution is a bookkeeping solution.
    • However, you might have tried to use a local bookkeeper before but they can be difficult to find & price-compare.

    Our UK-based network of online bookkeepers is here for you every step of the way – & soon our web & mobile apps will be available in multiple languages.

  • You'll know upfront how much you’ll pay, & with different options that could be as little as £15 pcm…

    Kate Bickmore

    Plumbing & Heating

    I just don’t have the time or skills to do it myself. The reports they give me every month have helped me to decide to carry on with a particular gig or not – and I actually understand them…

    Richard Edmondson

    Weald Kitchen Makers

    EA123 have soundly demonstrated the skills to sort the most vital business elements competently & professionally. They have saved me many hours & reduced costs.

    Charlotte Hardwick

    Hair Stylist

    5 star company!!! I felt incredibly worried when I first became self employed. Easyas123uk make it very simple on how much tax I need to set aside each month and give me all the support and advice I need.

  • In short, here's what we can do for you:

    Compliant & Safe

    • We keep your records digitally for 6 years (original receipts can get lost or fade)

    • We prioritise keeping your data safe

    • We recommend you have a separate bank account as the ‘source of truth’ for tax inspection

    Complete & In-time

    • Data on all your gigs or projects

    • 100% accurate because we work mostly from your bank data

    • On our This Year service as soon as we have your bank data & paperwork we start to process, so your books are kept up-to-date

    Supported & Accessible

    • Dealing with HMRC can be daunting, so we provide user-friendly guides to registering then submitting tax returns (we can also communicate with your authorised advisor or refer you to an EA123-approved qualified tax specialist)
    • As self-employed bookkeepers we understand both your issues & the accountant's technical language, so if you have an accountant or tax advisor then we can translate between the two of you
    • We will always tell you about any changes to legislation & schemes that might help you such as tax-free childcare.
  • "We could save your business, not just a bit of tax…"

  • Accountants

    We take care of your self-employed & private landlord client's bookkeeping, so you don't have to!

    Being self-employed ourselves we know how difficult it can be to provide you with Tax Return figures – paperwork is missing, mistakes are made, everything is left till the last-minute. Our total digital bookkeeping solution provides accurate figures within a month.

    We know how difficult it can be to source reliable local bookkeepers. Easy As 123's UK-wide network of bookkeepers means total coverage – no downtime, no problem.

    Bookkeepers will notify clients directly of any issues or missing items, working with them to make your life easier! So, you're freed up to do what you do best!

    Missed 31st January 2018 tax deadline

  • About

    We are interested in exploring 3 key areas:

    1. The 'gig economy' - it's here to stay, and we want to be at the centre of a new approach that's needed in order to build trust.
    2. Making Tax Digital - HMRC's plans to bring in quarterly tax returns for everyone by 2021 could be a good thing.
    3. Trust - building with Blockchain & Distributive Trust Technologies to create a more secure, democratised platform for business record-keeping.
