    I use Parasol my self - easy to use, all done online. :)

    Think there may be a few cheaper ones out there somewhere though!

    Parasol ... I will have to look at that.

    I have know people pay well over £20 a week for such services.

    I am actually a qualified bookkeeper (+ tax, payroll) so depending on my IR35 status I may do my own, however, I rather start off been a full time employee of a company if i can.
