    Some accountants charge extra for doing returns early as they tend to do them all at the same time at the end of the year. SJD used to charge if you wanted it quicker. Your terms of reference will probably explain when they do it so anything different could come at a charge and then there is some extra effort calculating the extra ER that isn't standard as well.

    Good luck getting it done by 3rd March though.

    You given up contracting now? Don't intend to do it again (outside) for two years?
    Thanks Northernladuk. Thanks for your comments. I understand its annual charge so I have already paid it. I was just checking for ER calculation on SA. Is £300+VAT really justifiable?

    I stopped contracting last year and do not intend to return in next 2 years. I am on PAYE at the moment and would stay that way for some forceable future.
    I have already initiated liquidation process and would liquidate on 1st Mar using spicie route.

    Hi,

    I am currently going through MVL of my business and plan to liquidate it before 3rd March. My accountant is charging me for the remaining tax period (£450+VAT) as they are filing my CT return early. They are saying that they would have charged me this much money if I was operational for a year so tax return can be filled only when payment for a year is made.

    My accountant has now asked for extra £300+VAT to file my self assessment return with ER disclosures saying there would be additional work.

    Does anyone know what additional work may be required in Self Assessment return for my accountant to charge me extra?
    I have been paying £75+VAT a month to my accountant for last 5 years and that included Self Assessment return too but now that I am liquidating he is asking for money to file SA. This is equivalent to fees of 4 months that my business would have been paying to him.

    Thanks.
    I don't think it's a huge amount of work. £300 seems excessive IMO.
    You could google it and get this How to Claim Entrepreneurs’ Relief - Ridgefield Consulting

    My accountant does my SA as part of the bundle but to be honest I could do it myself easily enough. So why not tell him to do the normal and add to the online portal and you'll do the extra?
    Or tell them how easy it is and that'll accept £50 for them to do it not £300.
