Do you need an accountant?

Whether you are a sole trader, a partnership or a private limited company you are required to keep accounting records.

Some businesses may require assistance in day-to-day bookkeeping, or completing a set of annual accounts and some may choose to have their annual accounts audited.

In addition, private limited companies have to calculate the corporation tax due on the company’s profits each year and businesses registered for VAT are required to file periodic VAT Returns.

If you employ staff you will also have an obligation to pay wages, deduct income tax and national insurance contributions and provide a work place pension scheme.
