As the end of the year approaches, it is a special moment to reflect upon the achievements of the past year. With that in mind, we are pleased to inform that both K&B Accountancy Group and Cloud9 Umbrella have been nominated in the ContractorUK Awards for the Best Contractor Accountant (Small/Medium) Award and Best Umbrella Company Award respectively by ContractorUK.

The ContractorUK Awards are an excellent opportunity for contractors across the country to decide and vote for the companies that have provided exceptional service in each of the categories.

We are proud to have been nominated, as we believe the nominations reflect the importance and high level of personal service, hard work, fantastic technologies that our teams provide to our clients as well as our ability to aptly respond to market and legislative changes.

Cloud9 Umbrella is led by industry experts with hands-on experience to make contracting transparent and easy. We’ve successfully supported thousands of happy contractors over the years and believe that our willingness to go the extra mile is what sets us apart from other umbrella companies. It is through our philosophy of simplifying the every day that we make an extra effort to ensure that we provide simple and efficient umbrella services so our clients can focus on their assignments. By working closely with PRISM, in addition to undergoing regular external audits implemented by Professional Passport, we always guarantee you peace of mind by ensuring we are fully compliant.

There have been many legislative changes in 2016, including SDC and the proposed IR35 public sector reforms, which we’ve adapted efficiently to ensure your work always adheres to the correct legislation.

With over 15 years’ of experience, K&B Accountancy Group understands that a personal touch is required and this is why our expert accountants are always on hand to answer any and all questions our clients might have.

To ensure that life as a contractor remains stress-free, we have been incorporating FreeAgent, one of the UK’s strongest cloud accounting software, in our services for years. This has made it as efficient as ever for contractors to keep a finger on the pulse of their finances and access their accounts securely on the move, anytime and anywhere. Furthermore, in 2016, we became a premium partner of FreeAgent to further strengthen our relationship and improve our offerings to clients.

This year, we just launched K&B OpenSpace to improve the way we communicate with clients online. This personalised online collaboration tool enables an easy and secure way for our accountants and clients to exchange files and electronically approve documents – working with us has never been easier!

It is our continued determination to make life easier for contractors through our personalised services and sophisticated online platforms, which duly reflects our motto: live life, contract happy.

We hope that the success and growth of both K&B Accountancy Group and Cloud9 Umbrella will follow into the next year. You can help us to make it an even better start to 2017 by showing your appreciation and voting for both of our nominations in the ContractorUK Awards. It only takes a few seconds!
