Accountant or DIY?

Hi

Seriously considering self employment as a driving instructor.  I'm looking at the potential earnings and costs carefully (other than training) and wondering if I will need an accountant or whether it is perfectly acceptable to do my own accounts.  I know accountants cost a bit, but I have heard that driving instructors are often targeted for tax inspections, and I would hate to go through one of those without professional help.

So, accountants... A necessary expense or do you do it yourself?

I'd agree with Triker. HMRC run free workshops (or they used to) for the self employed which I found to be excellent.

Do it yourself smile
an accountant will probably save you approx 300 quid a year but the accountants fee will probably be 300 quid  roll
