Accounting services for designers

Tax and management advice for your design business


When you’re a creative freelance designer, your time is taken up by developing new ideas, making an impact, and producing pieces of art. As accounting specialists for designers, including graphic and interior designers, we know your time is valuable.

At Alchemy, we work with a range of designers, so we know your industry and how your numbers should add up. You might have a number of disbursements for clients, from ordering materials to dealing directly with their suppliers.

Being a designer, you might find projects fluctuate throughout the year, with a rush at Christmas. Our cashflow management and tax planning services ensure you’re able to meet supply and demand, without sacrificing your creative efforts.

Knowing what expenses you can claim as a designer is important. Your equipment and tools are the backbone of your operation, ensuring you can create artwork effortlessly. We’re able to outline exactly what you can and can’t claim on business expenses, from paint brushes to computer software. 

At Alchemy, we also have a selection of accounting software for designers too. If you’re a freelance designer, FreeAgent is an efficient way to keep your accounts in order – and if you’re a growing small design agency, Xero is great for payroll. 

No designer wants accounting to take over the creative process – but keeping a hold on your business finances is essential for ensuring you’re making a profit. We keep you on top of your accounting and are proactive in our advice on your next steps.

  • Cloud accounting
  • Business expenses
