Frequently Asked Questions
How much will I save by switching?
It depends on how much you now pay per month and what services that includes. It could be as high as £1,080/year – or even higher!
Why is Anytime so cheap, how do I know I can trust it?
We currently process or act for tens of thousands of contractors as well as over 300 recruitment agencies. This means that no one understands your business better. And because we’re such a large group, with over 300 specialists worldwide, we are able to pass on the savings we make through economies of scale to clients like you. But don’t worry – if you do need to speak to us, our friendly and experienced team of “PSC Savvy” accountants are always available at the end of the phone.
Why is online accounting better?
We use the very latest industry standard online accounting software so you can access it and update it anywhere, and anytime you like. It saves time as there’s less duplications, it calculates instantly and it reconciles numbers so you make fewer errors, plus it reminds you when things need to be done.
Who is it suitable for?
Anytime is the ideal online solution for a Limited company (PSC) freelancer or contractor. If you think you may need additional hand-holding or prefer someone else to do the “book-keeping” bit for you, you may be better with the unlimited support offered by one of our other packages that start at £100+VAT/month (minimum 12 month contract).
What if I do need advice, who do I call?
Occasionally you will need to speak to one of our contractor accountant specialists. Our team is only a phone call away, simply ring 03333 110 230. There is no general charge for ongoing support and advice which is covered by our all-inclusive fee. In the rare event you need specific tailored and detailed tax planning or advice, or if you have got your accounts in a bit of a mess and need more help, we will always discuss and agree any additional fees with you before we do the work. But generally we expect that all costs will be covered by our inclusive annual fee.
What if I stop contracting?
Circumstances change and you may wish to stop trading as a limited company. If so, we can discuss your options from dissolution to keeping your business dormant. There would be some statutory admin to complete for HMRC but we are there to help smooth this process.
How quickly can I switch?
We can set you up online within 24-hours. We will liaise directly with your current accountant and let HMRC & Companies House know that you have appointed new accountants, it’s as easy as that.
What happens if I refer you to a fellow contractor?
We’d be delighted if you recommended Anytime to someone you know. Once they sign up, we’ll happily credit your fee account with one month’s fee as our thank you. There’s no limit as to how much we’ll credit your account so if we sign up 12 of your recommendations you’ll enjoy a year’s accountancy services for free!

In accordance with the Provision of Service Regulations 2009, we confirm that our Professional Indemnity insurance is with CFC Underwriting Limited, 85 Gracechurch Street, London EC3V 0AA.
