What Do I Need to Give My Accountant to Do My Year End Accounts?

Posted 17 Nov 15

One of your responsibilities as a business owner will be to file your year end accounts with HMRC and Companies House at the end of every financial year.

If you are a young company owner, the process might be overwhelming since especially at the start of any business, there are various tasks you will have to complete in order to start gaining your first profits.

This is why we recommend you hire an experienced and professional accountant to make the process quick and simple. Choosing the right accountant will help you avoid confusions and problems which can occur during stressful times and will keep you away from penalty fines and financial loses you might suffer from if your accounts are done incorrectly.

The purpose of the accounts is to report the financial activity of your company within the last twelve months of its trading, and to determine how much corporation tax you owe to HMRC.

You can provide the above documents in any form of your choice: a paper form in an account book, on computer spreadsheet, or a bookkeeping software, but it is crucial that you provide your accountant with original forms of documents.
