The leading provider of cloud accountancy services in the UK, FreeAgent, have today launched their first checklist dedicated to Self Assessment, and designed to help freelancers and small businesses to complete their tax returns and get them in before the deadline on the 31st January.

The guide has been written by Emily Coltman, the chief accountant at the company, and is available as a free download from and will be particularly useful to partnerships, directors of limited companies and sole traders. The checklist has been developed to effectively work as a road map to guide users through the self assessment essentials, helping them to both complete and then file their returns.

“Self Assessment can be a very confusing time for small business people, so we want to ensure they have a stress-free experience in 2013. FreeAgent is already enabling small businesses and freelancers to feel more confident about managing their business accounts, so we want this checklist to help them also feel confident about filing their tax return.”
