Sole traders

We want to take the stresses of accounts and tax away from you so you can concentrate on what you do best, your business!

We work with a variety of sole traders, from tradesmen and consultants to takeaways and hair salons. You’re in good hands when you choose Middlers.


End of year accounts

We will prepare your end of year accounts and present them to you with no-nonsense explanations. You will always have the information you need with no fancy jargon to complicate matters.

We know you are busy servicing your customers, that’s why we ensure the whole process is simple and swift. From signing your finished accounts at the touch of a button to providing information all year round via shared cloud storage.

Self-assessment tax returns

Your self-assessment tax return will contain the self-employment pages for your sole trader business as well as any other taxable personal income. As your authorised agent with HMRC, we will submit your tax return on your behalf and liaise with HMRC on any queries at any time. You no longer need to battle the manual completion of your own tax return or sit and wait on the telephone helpline for hours, we take care of it all.

VAT Returns

When your business is approaching the VAT threshold, it is very important to notify HMRC within the specified timescales. We are at hand to assist with the whole process, from continually monitoring your cumulative turnover and keeping you informed of the thresholds, to registration, preparation and submission of your VAT return.

There can also be reasons to voluntary register for VAT depending upon your business. This will be assessed in your initial meeting, whether you are a new or established sole trader.

Payroll services

Concentrating on employing the right people in your business can be, in itself, a huge task. Couple that with the compliance HMRC expects of you, even more so now than ever with the introduction of real-time information and auto-enrolment, but don’t let this put you off! We will deal with all of your payroll requirements from registration, processing and submission of data in real time to HMRC. We will keep you up to date with the necessary regulations and thresholds. Our payroll service is completely paperless too, payslips emailed securely direct to your employees, saving you time and together we are helping towards saving a tree or two!

Bookkeeping in the digital age has never been easier. We are certified silver partners with Xero – the most popular cloud-based bookkeeping provider. We’re passionate about finding the solutions that match your business and save you as much time and stress as possible. Your account manager will discuss all the options available to you, how similar businesses to yours currently run their bookkeeping and any other information you need to make an informed decision about how you want to keep your books and records.

Our digital bookkeeping includes automated bank feeds , mobile receipt scanning (throw all those paper receipts away!), automated emails, cloud based invoicing software and the list goes on. It doesn’t matter if you are a computer wizard or a technophobe, our team will expertly guide you through it all with a tailored solution that fits you and your business.

If you want to use the traditional forms of bookkeeping (Simplex D books, cashbooks and spreadsheets), fear not! We will work with whatever system you are most comfortable with, your peace of mind comes first as without that, no solution would work.




Our prices start from £25 per month. A fixed monthly fee will be set in your initial meeting that will include all the services you require and free unlimited support.

Our promises

We continually research the latest technologies to ensure we provide you with the best solutions for your business needs.

Here for you

Dedicated account managers, friendly teams and free unlimited support. Here for you, when you need us most.

The right approach

Your accounts provided fast, for a fixed monthly fee, unlimited support, with crystal clear reporting and straight talking advice.

How we work with individuals

In order to eliminate as much of the work you need to do, we apply to HMRC to act as your agent. This means we will make every phone call and send every letter needed to HMRC on your behalf.

Quite simply the tax year end finishes on the 5th April and the filing deadline is almost 10 months later, 31st January of the following year. We aim to complete your return as soon as possible to give you as much time as possible to prepare and save for any possible tax liabilities. There’s also the added benefit that we have never had a client miss a filing deadline and pay late penalties!

We aim to turnaround sole trader accounts and tax returns in two weeks. From shared cloud storage to instant online approval of accounts and returns our whole process aims to provide you with the services you need swiftly. We aim to be as swift as possible while maintaining our impeccably high standard of quality.

Upon joining Middlers you will meet with your dedicated account manager. You will deal with the same account manager and their team from day one. This allows them to build a lasting relationship, understand you and your business and help achieve your goals. Our dedication to continually progressing and improving ensures you receive a personal service that never becomes stale.

Why Middlers?

The main reason our sole trader clients choose us is our ability to take care of it all. You can rest assured that you are in good hands and your accounts and taxes will be up-to-date.

I contacted Middlers accountants because I’d had problems and lost confidence in my previous accountant. After one phone call I took my business to them. Very professional, quick and reliable correspondence and they get the job done.
