GTC welcomes accountants Bradley Foreman as sponsors

The GTC is delighted to welcome accountants
Bradley Foreman as sponsors

As anyone who attended the 'How to Survive as a Freelance' GTC workshop, kindly hosted by ARRI GB a couple of weeks ago will testify, Selwyn Foreman of Bradley Foreman Accountants is not only extremely knowledgeable about all accounting matters relevant to self-employed cameramen, but (and this may come as a bit of a surprise to anyone under the misapprehension that accountancy is by definition a bit dull – “accountants are not dull people, they’re just interested in dull things”), he is also a very entertaining speaker.

As one delegate wrote, "I never really thought an accountant could make me laugh!" and another: "The most entertaining PowerPoint display of the day award was won by Selwyn Foreman who gave a masterful talk on the broad aspects of tax matters for freelancers." And if this has whetted your appetite, you can see Selwyn's presentation again at the Birmingham 'How to Survive as a Freelance' GTC workshop on
5 December 2009.

Our new sponsors have sent this statement of the services they can offer to GTC members:

"Going freelance should be an exciting prospect, so leave the worrying about your accounting issues to Bradley Foreman Accountants.

We are a small user-friendly firm based in Hertfordshire who specialise in the media. We maintain a holistic approach with our clients' business and financial affairs, offering a personal service to sole traders, small companies and people who want to start up in business. We worry about your self-assessment forms, VAT returns, book-keeping and end year accounts work; leaving you to focus on your business.

We have spent many years working with the media trades and their service providers, during which time we have built up a special relationship with the TV and film units of Revenue and Customs and can advise on the best set-up for your business, your lifestyle and your career.

We can help you in so many ways: whether, when and on which scheme to register for VAT, how best to establish a limited company, when and how to obtain finance for equipment, as well as providing general business advice. Our aim is to enable you to keep administration, book-keeping and accounts work to the minimum whilst making the most of the tax breaks that are available and controlling your business affairs to safeguard the future.

A personable bunch with over 40 years' experience, we work directly with our clients and do not employ juniors. We charge on a subscription basis which covers all our work and advice, helping you to budget for the year ahead. We are mad on fish and have an impressive display of tropical fish tanks and aquaria in our offices. Through us you can achieve peace through fish!

You may be just about to leave the safe environment of PAYE status and be looking to start self-employment. We specialise in helping clients make that exciting transition – to ensure they are aware of the opportunities to save tax as it is so important to get this right from the start."
