The Busy Business Owners [Essential] Guide To Brilliant Business Bookkeeping

Why YOU need to understand your business accounts

If you run a business in the UK - no matter your structure; Sole Trader, Partnership or Limited Company - you are required to keep robust and accurate business records.

You are responsible for keeping records or appointing a professional to keep those records of income, expenditure and taxable profit or loss and ensuring that the proper records are filed:

  • Sole Traders and Partnerships have to provide their accounts and tax returns to HMRC.
  • Limited Companies have to file their accounts with Companies House and send a copy of the accounts to HMRC to support their tax return.

In a time when 50% of all business fail due to a poor management control, poor planning or a lack of cashflow - YOU can radically improve your chances of success by understanding, managing and controlling your business finances.

How accurate and timely business accounts benefit your business

Well managed, accurate business accounts:

  • Will ensure that you pay the correct amount of tax, not a penny more
  • Will tell you if you are making a profit or a loss, and help you identify products and services are your biggest profit generators
  • Will tell you how much you can pay yourself and if, or when you can take on staff
  • Will help investors determine whether or not your business is suitable for lending or investment and can afford future repayments
  • Will help you manage and forecast cashflow requirements
  • Will help you make informed business decisions

LOVE your accounts or HATE them, you have to UNDERSTAND them, OWN them, be RESPONSIBLE and ACCOUNTABLE for them IF you want to build a profitable and successful business. You have to be able to understand the financial strengths and weaknesses of your business to be able to make EFFECTIVE business decisions.

Hi there!
My name is Harry and I have been working closely alongside many business owners and bookkeepers here at Caseron.

Management accounting always caught my attention, there is real value to be had by being proactive in business as opposed to simply reacting to events which have long since passed.

I have a real passion for helping others and have a great respect for people who are brave enough to ask questions; the only silly question is the one never asked. I actively encourage people to ask for as much help as they need.

It often surprises me how little support there is out there for business owners when it comes to bookkeeping and accounting, so many times we see people who want to understand their numbers better but simply don't know where to start.
This is where my thirst for training others grew: I look forward to being your instructor!
