Independent Professional Sector Accounting

World class accounting from award winning chartered accountants you can trust

Accounting For The Independent Professional Sector

The independent professional sector includes self-employed individuals who are the sole employee of their business, and engage in a service activity or intellectual service. This definition excludes those operating in the retail and agricultural sectors. A majority of independent professionals operate in the scientific, technical, administration, and social work sectors.

Despite the small size of the sector and its rapid growth across Europe, this sector is often hard-hit by uncertainty and economic difficulties. As these businesses depend on one employee, any issues affecting the business – or even the employee – can cripple its financial standing.

This is where we come in. We can not only apply our wide berth of accounting knowledge, but also our sector-specific experience and expertise to your business.

We Have Open Minds

Despite the sheer breadth of the independent professional sector, Nordens can provide accounting support for an even wider array of businesses that operate in their own share of the sector. Here at Nordens, our experience with this sector has stretched from independent professionals to contractors, consultants, and interims. Thus, if your business partakes in a component of this sector, we can provide the specialised accounting that your business deserves.

Recognising the contribution made by freelancers and contractors to the economy and supporting their evolving financial needs is at the core of our accounting practices for this sector. From starting a self-employed business to supporting it through the twists and turns of shifting trends and economic change, we can guide you through to financial security and success. Thanks to the wide stretch of sectors we provide accounting for, you can be sure to receive financial support tailored to your business.

We Think Long Term

We Understand The Independent Professional Sector

At Nordens, being up-to-date with everything-accounting is evidently important. Yet before we even consider the necessary accounting requirements of your business, we dissect your individual sector and thus identify your individual business’ needs. Not only do we take into account the obstacles that the sector is prone to facing, but we are also always prepared to find and fix the individual issues that may be encountered. This typically centres around adapting the accounting of your business to the shifting landscape of the specific sector your business is operating in, and forecasting your finances amid the future uncertainty often met by independent professionals.

Our Independent Professional Sector Experience

Here at Nordens, our wide stretch of accounting experience and expertise is the stamp of approval that certifies everything we do. Yet beyond our clients’ raving reviews is the specialised experience we share with the independent professional sector. From our past experience with personal accounting to our experience with a range of high-flying companies, there’s no doubt that we are trained in dealing with both sides of the equation in this complex sector. Indeed, our work with a variety of sectors often encasing independent professionals confirms that we can keep up with the shifts and sways of whatever sector you start your next venture in.
