why is it important to maintain good business records?

Firstly it is a legal requirement and if you are a limited company director then it is your responsibility to know what your company’s money has been spent on.  Plus, you need to know how profitable you are – otherwise why are you in business?

Of course sensible money management means that you should be able to plan for VAT and Corporation Tax bills, as well as knowing how much money there is available for you personally. After all, you’re not doing it purely for the love of working are you?

Finally by keeping real time business records it means that at a4c we can give you support throughout the year and tailor our service and advice to your exact needs.

what is corporation tax?

As a limited company director you need to know what the business has to pay and when. Perhaps the most important liability is Corporation Tax.

In this short HMRC video you will be told in basic terms how Corporation Tax is calculated, when it should be reported and on what date the payment should be made.

Of course at a4c we manage the reporting and deadlines on your behalf but we believe that if you understand how to run your business correctly then we can better represent you as accountants, helping you achieve maximum profitability and tax efficient trading.
