Founded by professionals with over 20 years’ experience in the contractor accountancy sector, Bluebird Accountancy was launched to provide a specialist service for contractors – by combining traditional accountancy and award-winning FreeAgent software.
Bluebird Accountancy’s best-selling package helps hundreds of contractors run their limited companies, and it includes everything a limited company director needs to be successful. And, the best-selling package (usually £95.00 per month, + VAT) is available to IT Contracting readers for only £75.00 per month (+ VAT) – unbeatable value.
As well as having access to award-winning FreeAgent (software that makes running a business a breeze), Bluebird Accountancy clients also have access to a dedicated Account Manager. This provides clients with the perfect combination of state-of-the-art technology and support from an expert.

How long has the company been operating?
The firm was founded by John and Louise Payne, who first began providing contractors and freelancers with accountancy services in 1998. The team behind Bluebird Accountancy has over 20 years’ experience in the contracting industry and aims to provide all clients with the perfect modern-day accountancy solution at a fantastic value.
Does Bluebird Accountancy have a recognised accreditation?
Yes! We are delighted to be accredited by the FCSA.
The FCSA (The Freelancer & Contractor Services Association) is the UK’s leading professional body dedicated to ensuring the supply chain of temporary workers is compliant and ethical. We believe that the best way to show our dedication to compliance within our sector is to have earned FCSA accreditation, and we’re proud to have done so.
How many clients do you have?
We have over 500 happy clients and we are expanding rapidly!
We’d also like to add how happy we are that so many clients have taken the time to leave us a positive review on Google. We currently have a 4.8 / 5.0 rating, and it’s great to receive feedback (whether positive or negative) so that we can continue trying to improve our service.
Do you specialise in accounting for limited company contractors?
What are your main aims when it comes to providing accountancy services for your contractors?
We believe that rather than paying hundreds of pounds for an accountant to complete tasks you would prefer to do yourself, it is more beneficial to offer a comprehensive service at a competitive monthly price.
Bluebird Accountancy provides a modern online service for experienced contractors and freelancers. A FreeAgent business account creates a seamless platform for you to manage and view your company’s finances, and your Account Manager will be happy to offer support should you need it.
At the highly competitive price of just £75 (+ VAT) per month, we are truly offering unrivalled value for money.
What advice would you give to a first-time contractor?
Running your own limited company can be daunting, and at first you may not be sure what is required. However, you do not need to spend hundreds of pounds on a hand holding accountancy service. Combining the knowledge of your Bluebird Accountancy Account Manager and FreeAgent will equip you with the skills and competency to run and manage your own business. Don’t worry – we will support you every step of the way!
What type of software do you use?
Every client has access to their own FreeAgent account. This popular and award-winning software allows you to view important financial information and provides you with assistance regarding the creation and management of formal documents. Your personal FreeAgent account also gives you access to a live bank feed, invoices, expenses, quotes, and VAT information.
Do all clients have their own account manager?
All of our clients benefit from their own dedicated Account Manager who will be happy to offer unlimited support and answer any of your queries via email or over the phone.
