When you’re running your own business, it’s so important to keep accurate records so that you can work out what profits you are making, what taxes you owe and how much you are spending.
You can’t run a business without having this information to hand, but we all know you have better things to do than keep your bookkeeping up to date.
Don’t worry, this is what we are here for. Let us help, as well as basic bookkeeping, we can prepare your VAT return, provide you with management accounts and if you need a part time financial director, we can help with that too.
What is bookkeeping?
In very simplistic terms, bookkeeping is a record of all transactions of the business, showing your income, expenditure, assets and liabilities. You can use these records to make sure your business reaches its full potential, they really are critical for decision making and future planning.
Why do I need to do bookkeeping?
If you are running your own business you understand what is happening in terms of finances and cash flow at all time.
- You need to know who to pay and when.
- You need to know who owes you money.
- And probably most importantly, you need to know if you are making any profit.
Without this information you cannot make important decision, you don’t know how much you can take as a wage from the business, and you don’t know if you can afford that new piece of equipment.
Do I need to file a VAT return?
As well as bookkeeping, we also offer VAT return services.
