Accounting methods

You’ll need to choose an accounting method.

Cash Accounting

Most small businesses with an income of £83,000 or less can use cash basis reporting.
With this method, you only record income or expenses when you receive money or pay a bill. This means you won’t need to pay Income Tax on money you haven’t yet received in your accounting period.

Traditional accounting (Accrual method)

Many businesses use traditional accounting where you record income and expenses by the date you invoiced or were billed.

“We can help you to spend more time running your business and less time sorting out expenses and worrying about lost receipts/invoices. We offer flexible payment plans on all our services to help spread cost. We are on hand when you need us and are available at weekends and evenings”
