As a small business, you’re always looking for ways to save money and streamline your operations. But what if you’re overlooking one of the most critical aspects of your business – your accounting?

In a digital world, it’s more important than ever to have an accountant who can help you manage your finances and take full advantage of the latest technologies. Here are just a few reasons why you need an accountant in today’s economy.

Accountants can support you with Making Tax Digital

With changes on the horizon, businesses are likely to rely more heavily upon accountants regarding tax rights. In April 2024 – after next year’s legislation goes into effect, any unincorporated business or landlord with a total income over £10k will have to arrange for digital accounting software for bookkeeping. Which can be filed online and makes sure all financial transactions run smoothly from month end through filing time every Spring.

If you have not already done so, your business must provide HMRC with at least quarterly updates and an end-of-year statement. This way, they can accurately calculate any taxes due from the company for each fiscal period!

Saves You Time

When you’re running your own company, it’s hard to keep up with everything. You might feel like the weight is too much for one person and that there are so many things left unaddressed in life – but an accountant can help! An accounting professional will take care of bookkeeping (which means less time spent doing paperwork), filing taxes efficiently on behalf of your business, and advising about how best to use every penny you make from sales.
