From light-touch online accounts to in-depth personal tax planning, our accountancy services are flexible and can be tailored based on your circumstances.

We wanted to gain a first-hand account from someone that is currently using our accountancy services. So we decided to speak with Tony, a Quantity Surveyor who has been working outside IR35 for the past several years. During that time the off-payroll working legislation was introduced, so we were keen to hear how those changes had affected him, and whether PayStream helped him navigate the complexities of IR35.

1  When did you first start using PayStream’s accountancy services?

I initially joined PayStream’s umbrella company in 2015. But because I’d had such a positive experience using their umbrella, I then chose to move over to their accountancy service later on in 2015 for my next contract.


2  How have you found your experience of using PayStream overall?

The whole team with no exception whatsoever have provided a superb service, it’s been very worthwhile.


3  Did PayStream provide you with updates about the introduction of the off-payroll working legislation?

Yes, I was kept really well informed by PayStream. I received both email updates and phone call from my accounts team and was kept up-to-date.


4  Would you have been as prepared for the off-payroll working changes without PayStream's assistance?

No way, I needed PayStream. There is no question about it.


5  Are you satisfied with the service you have received from PayStream?

I decided to close down my limited company once I’d finished my contract and PayStream have been assisting me with this process. The service has been absolutely superb. They’ve been holding my hand throughout the entire process and have given me all the calculations and explanations. They’ve been fabulous.
