Services for Pupil Barristers


As a pupil barrister starting out at the Bar, you’ll have your hands full. BarTax can advise you from the outset, so you’ll always know what is required and when. We will advise you on Tax, VAT and other statutory requirements to ensure you start off on the right footing.


Your first year’s Barrister Smart Package is FREE*


This reflects our desire to build a long-term relationship with you based on understanding your practice requirements. Our FREE Barrister Smart Package includes your tax return, bookkeeping, accounts and VAT only. Should you require any additional services, please ask for a quotation. After your free year, you’ll benefit from competitive rates, underpinned by exemplary knowledge of your specialist sector and a commitment to providing a first class accountancy service. After your FREE year, the fee payable will be based on your annual income.


We recognise that as a busy barrister in training, you’ll want direct access to an accountant. That’s why we’ve ensured we are always there when you need us – even outside normal business hours. We believe it’s this added value approach and our commitment to tailor our service to your precise requirements that makes us the first choice for pupil barristers.
