Accounts Preparation Services
Why do I need year-end accounts?
We can prepare your sole trader, partnership, landlord business, limited company, charity and not for profit organisation year-end accounts.
Sole trader and partnership accounts form the basis for the self-assessment tax return. In addition, limited company accounts must be submitted to Companies House and along with the corporation tax return to HM Revenue & Customs. All have deadlines that we monitor closely to ensure compliance.
We must present accounts in a specific format following accounting standards. Therefore, as well as preparing the accounts in the prescribed format, we will review them with you to help you understand the profitability of the business and its financial position.
Why is book-keeping important?
Book-keeping ensures the accuracy of the information submitted to HM Revenue & Customs and can also assist business owners in reviewing the performance of the business in real-time. For limited companies, it is a legal requirement to maintain adequate records. For many VAT businesses, making tax digital regulations are in place, which requires digital records to be maintained regularly. In the future, the making tax digital requirements will also shift to sole trader, partnership and landlord businesses.
We can accept your accounting records in the simplest forms, be it bank statements and a box of receipts up to fully maintained accounting software records. We will make recommendations for improvements where we feel it would benefit you. Ideally, though, maintaining adequate records should be an integral part of running any business. It can be challenging and time-consuming. At JDT, we understand this struggle and therefore offer book-keeping services tailored to meet your needs. With our help, you can benefit from less time spent on paperwork and therefore, more time running your business.
