    Find yourself an accountant that is willing to suspend rates for bench time, or at least reduce them. Plenty do.
    I talked to my accountant and he agreed to reduce cost to half during bench period. I should have done this bit earlier. thanks guys.

    I am with one of the top contractor account paying £100+ every month for the last 2+ years. Things were great in the beginning after many changes in handlers (I suppose my case handed over to more inexperienced resources) now I am finding too many mistakes from them. Every number I query come back with an apology and correction!
    Sounds like what I'm going through. They keep making really basic errors that make £1000's difference to the dividend.

    I've had enough of them and tempted to change accountant. Is there any particular time that it's easier/safer to make the switch?
    e.g. is it easier if done while out of contract, or easier if you're just at the start of a new company year?

    The end of the company year so the same company will do the returns for you as well. You can start the new guys with a clean slate. Some may charge you to do it early and some horrible little scroats will try and get out of doing it at all so be pretty firm.

    Or mid year and get the new accountant to do it all for you, so that they are running with as much data as they can and they can get all the authorisation codes through from HMRC to be your agent quickly. Once they do that, the old accountant can't file things for you anyway.

    The new accountant will charge him or that though won't he as he hasn't paid the first full year of engagement?

    Sometimes when I post on here I end up quoting random posts and not the post I intended on quoting.

    Other times autocorrect takes over.
