Getting your Transactions Data to Us
In order for us to do your accounts, we need information about the money you have been paid and the money you have spent. This allows us to work out your profits and therefore how much tax you will have to pay.
If you are VAT registered, we need this same information to work out how how much VAT you need to pay.
There are various ways that you can get this information to us:-
a) You can enter your data directly into the accounts software that we use to do your accounts. The software allows you to enter transactions manually and/or import your transactions from a CSV file that you can download from your bank.
b) You can fill in a spreadsheet file that we can provide for you and email it to us. One file every month is ideal.
c) You can simply download a CSV file from your bank and send it to us. Again, one file every month is ideal.
Cash & Credit Card Transactions
Bear in mind that your bank CSV files will not include transactions carried out by other methods such as cash or by a Credit Card (or via a different bank account). It is possible that you will be able to get additional CSV files from your Credit Card provider or other bank accounts, but cash transactions need to be manually recorded. This can be done simply by making copies of invoices, (or keeping a note) where you get paid in cash and keeping all your cash receipts together in a biscuit tin.
