CASE STUDY

Andy, Managing Director
Arc Vision Limited, Hampshire
Heelan Associates customer since: 2010

“As a Contractor looking to set up a Limited Company, finding the right finance partner for me was really important. After speaking to a few local accountancy firms, I decided to go with Heelan Associates as in the first meeting I instantly felt at ease that my business set up would be in safe (and friendly) hands. I felt that I had found a partner to help me understand all of the moving parts involved in setting up a business.”

Heelan Associates look after everything from Book-keeping and Payroll to VAT returns for Arc Vision Limited. Our extensive experience in working with Limited Company Contractors allows us to help business owners like Andy get the most out of his Limited Company Contractor business. We have helped him better understand the IR35 rules to ensure he stays compliant.

Andrew added “Heelen Associates also helped me by recommending an Independent Financial Advisor and providing SA302 evidence to help me find a mortgage. I have gone on to recommend a lot of local independent contractors in a similar position to myself and will certainly carry on telling everyone I know about Heelan Associates.”
