Do you need full business accounts for your small business?

If you’re self-employed, you may need to produce annual business accounts for small business tax returns.

Annual accounts will allow you to complete an accurate tax return which will tell HMRC how much tax you owe. In most cases, it’s better to get a qualified professional to complete your accounts and business tax returns for you.

What are annual business accounts and do you need them?

Full business accounts are a summary of your business’ financial activity over a 12 month period. They are submitted to Companies House and HMRC every year.

Full accounts consist of a Profit and Loss Statement, Cash Flow Statement and a Balance Sheet.

Why you need a chartered accountant for businesses to complete accounts

Rather than trying to do it all yourself, it’s always best to hire experienced, qualified chartered accountants for small businesses.

Chartered accountants are those qualified to take on a number of specific accounting and tax responsibilities including auditing, filing limited company tax returns and providing financial advice.

Hiring a chartered accountant for your small business has the following benefits:

  • It’ll save you time you can spend elsewhere on your business
  • You won’t have to stress about whether you’ve done it all right
  • It ensures your accounts are accurate and submitted on time
  • You’ll be represented by a professional in case something goes wrong or you’re investigated.

The last thing a growing business needs is to submit an incorrect tax return or even miss a deadline. Either scenario could end with some pretty hefty fines.
