Book keeping & VAT
Every business needs to keep accurate records of their accounting transactions during the financial year in order to comply with the HMRC Legislation. All VAT registered companies need to prepare quarterly or monthly VAT returns based on their accounting transactions during the relevant period. Well managed and up-to-date accounting records are essential in the running of any successful business and good records and advice are vital to protect businesses from any unexpected tax that may arise as a result of investigation or VAT Inspection.
Maintaining accurate and up-to-date records can be a burden for any business and when this task falls on the owner/manager, it can be a serious distraction from the general smooth running and efficiency of your organisation. Clients may wish to save costs by using Parkes & Co to outsource their accounting services.
