Making Tax Digital
In July 2017, HMRC announced that all businesses and individuals will need to file their accounting information digitally.
By April 2019, businesses above the VAT Threshold will need to keep Digital records and from 2020 this should apply to all other businesses who will be updating HMRC quarterly for their corporation tax, Income Tax and National Insurance obligations digitally.
VAT & Bookkeeping
Keeping your books in order and as up to date as possible results in a business being able to make smarter decisions. If kept up to date, you get a real-time view of your numbers, get a good understanding of your cash flow and identify where the moneymaking opportunities are within your business.
Knowing that your bookkeeping is up to date and accurate gives you the peace of mind that you are as tax efficient as you can be too.
If you are serious about running a great business and really want to achieve your goals then it is vital to keep your finger on the pulse and know your numbers during the year. Having access to and an understanding of your numbers as the year progresses will give you the tools that you need to guide your strategy and decisions.
Our most successful clients have quarterly if not monthly management accounts prepared by us, these are THE most essential tool for your business.

"Into a third year and VERY happy.
This is now my third year with Melanie Curtis Accountants and couldn't ask for better support and information during these difficult times. Before, during, and as we emerge out out the other side of this pandemic, my business has received completely uninterrupted and high quality service as always. Melanie Curtis Accountants are the best. "
"I have been with Mel and her team now for almost 3 years - I wish I had know about you all WAY sooner in my career as I would have used you all along. I've had some very bad experiences in the past and have paid a lot of money to companies who just left.
Outstanding service! I know NOTHING about accounts and VAT and the like, which can be a very scary place to be as a business owner. I'm so thankful I know I have real professionals, who also happen to be lovely people, doing everything for me. Thank you."
