Annual Accounts & Tax

Annual Accounts and Tax

All businesses need to produce their annual accounts, tax returns and other statutory
returns. This is not the most exciting area for business people but at Bradan Accountants, it
is our bread and butter. We can take away a lot of the difficulty and time you spend on your
annual accounts to give you the freedom to focus on your business. In addition, by using
Cloud Accounting systems, you can further reduce the time spent and the cost of preparing
annual accounts.

One of the drawbacks of the annual compliance process is that it is usually completed a
number of months after the action has happened and so is not that useful for decision-
making. However, it is necessary to provide public disclosure of your company’s operating
and financial activities over the past year. The report may be issued to shareholders and
other stakeholders to evaluate the firm’s financial performance and to make investment and
future-focused decisions.

These are essentially a “short-form” version of your accounts. They don’t show as much detail and don’t include a balance sheet. They are useful when you want to show your accounts to third parties without divulging too much information.

It is best practice for you to at least discuss your returns with us as you are ultimately responsible. It is also good for planning and we suggest discussing your annual accounts with us to ensure you understand the key information. 

If you use cloud accounting software, and use it properly, it can save both time and money on completing your annual accounts. It can also ensure you have an ongoing and up to date overview of your financial situation throughout the year.

It is best to choose your accountant early but of course you can contact us to discuss our availability to take you on as a client. Don’t delay though – the earlier you contact us, the better!
