The Companies Acts require you to keep sufficient records to prepare financial statements compliant with those Acts, whilst HMRC require you to keep sufficient records to fulfil your tax reporting obligations - whether for Corporation Tax, PAYE or VAT.
We have several spreadsheets which will help you in this. Please download them and use them. And let us know if you need anything tailoring or amending - it doesn't take us long, and there is no charge.
And if you scan your documents and send them on a disc together with your excel spreadsheets at year end rather than sending us a bulky packet of papers, we will give you a 10% discount to our fees.
