Frequently Asked Questions

Discover more about our Bookkeeping Services Essex.

Why are Bookkeeping services important?

Proper bookkeeping provides you with important data on the cash flow of your business, allowing you to analyse your performance and make informed and profitable business decisions. Good bookkeeping is also essential in keeping your financial records up to date and providing accountants with the up-to-date information needed to calculate accurate tax returns.

How often should I do bookkeeping?

If you are a VAT registered business, you will need to do your bookkeeping quarterly as a minimum, in order to keep on top of your reporting obligations. But as we outlined above, good bookkeeping can bring value to your business, so it is important to determine the frequency of your bookkeeping by taking into account the strategic benefits that regular reports can provide. The size and complexity of your business will also have an impact on how often you’ll need to work on your books to keep them accurate and up to date.

What is the difference between bookkeeping and accounting?

A bookkeeper will keep your financial records in order by processing invoices, expense claims, and receipts through the appropriate business software. They may also deal with things like payrolls and VAT returns. On the other hand, an accountant’s role involves ensuring compliance and using bookkeeping data to file tax returns, conduct regular tax planning, and advise business owners on their cash flow management.  Many accountancy firms provide bookkeeping services, as experienced accountants will be able to help keep you on top of your books while providing integral insights and solutions from a single point of contact.
