Why do you need a bookkeeper?
Trying to do your own bookkeeping can be very time consuming without the necessary skills or experience. It can also be very daunting, complicated and prone to mistakes. As a business owner or director, you want to focus your energy on growing your business, getting new clients, promoting and selling your services. This is where MB Bookkeeping can help.
What is Bookkeeping?
Bookkeeping is an essential part of your business. It records all financial transactions and provides you with up to date accounts, so you always know how your business is performing while also meeting deadlines for VAT, CIS and tax returns etc.
- Sales – are you keeping records of all your sales, do you know who owes you money?
- Purchases – are you sure you are not
over spendingon materials for jobs? Are your suppliers paid up to date? Are you claiming back the correct amount of VAT?
- Bank Reconciliations – is everything in your bank correct? If these accounts need
reconcilingat Year End, expect a bill from your accountant for doing this.
- Are you
surprisedat the amount of Corporation Tax you have to pay and do not have the funds to pay it? With the correct bookkeeping recordsyou can ensure you don’t get a shocking bill and make sure you budget for your taxes.
- Need to purchase some
much needed equipment,or transport? Up to d atemonthly accounts can help you get the finance, also provide you with the budget you have for this.
Unfortunately, if a business fails to keep adequate records then they can be fined by HMRC along with an additional tax bill if the records resulted in an incorrect tax return being filed. You can also end up with a hefty accountants bill at your Year End if they have to do all the groundwork on your books or sort out errors made from poor bookkeeping.
