UK individual taxpayers spend £1.1Billion with accountants when the tax filing deadline looms. The reasons behind this spend are 1) that tax preparation is time consuming, 2) paying less tax requires intimate knowledge of tax laws and 3) these are complex and keep changing every year. Half of this spend alone comes from self-employed.
