Why should software developers choose MWA?

Software development is a challenging industry, requiring a precise blend of creative and technical knowledge, as well as a serious investment of time and effort in order to manage complex projects and establish viable business models. As such, it can be difficult for individuals in these fields to put time aside to manage complex accounts at the same time.

For example, many software developers do not realise that the vast majority of their pre- and post-launch development costs (whether by staff on the payroll or freelancers) can be claimed for under the Research & Development Tax Credit scheme, providing an effective tax claim of up to 18.85%, which can be an important cash injection at a pre-revenue stage.

At MWA, we have been working with software developers and tech companies of various sizes for many years, giving us a strong insight into the specific challenges and queries these clients face. They include:

  • What is the simplest way to manage all of my accounts, expenses, receipts and invoices?
  • What are the accountancy implications of starting up a new software or app development business? How can I adopt the most tax-efficient structure for my new venture?
  • What kind of tax allowances are available to me as a freelance developer or contractor? How is this affected when working from a home office?
  • What are R&D Tax Credits? Is it correct that I can receive cash from HMRC without having paid any tax?
  • How can I adjust the accounting structure of my new business to facilitate its rapid growth and flexible evolution?
  • How can I stay aware of any legislative changes that may affect my business, and what changes must I make to account for these?

As a specialist full-service accountancy firm supporting software developers, we are ideally positioned to answer these questions for you. We do so by providing tailored advice and solutions to help you find the most effective accounting solution for your needs, in line with industry best practice.

We have worked with businesses of all sizes, ranging from SMEs to large multinational companies, meaning we are able to provide informed advice at every stage of your business journey. We believe in listening to our clients’ needs and responding accordingly - which is why in our last customer survey, 95% of respondents rated us at 4.5 out of 5 or above, and 100% said they would recommend us.
