Year-end Annual Accounts Preparation Assistance for 2023/2024

Prepare for your Accounts throughout the year


Your company’s accounting period normally ends at the end of the year. It is often referred to as a limited company’s accounting reference date. When you file the mandatory year-end accounts with HMRC and companies house, your accounting period for the fiscal year is officially closed.


It is not advisable to wait until the very last minute to gather all the data needed for your year-end accounting. To eliminate and avoid your extra stresses, prepare for it all year long. In order to track down outstanding invoices and payments, we advise beginning work on your year-end accounts one month in advance of the deadline.


Gather relevant Paperwork

Income records, bank statements, statements of account from suppliers, invoices, and receipts are the documents you must make sure you have.


Chase Late Payments

To make sure your accounts are as accurate as possible, you should chase any outstanding bills before the reporting due date and deposit any money you receive.


Sort any expenses

Keeping track of your spending will help you cut your corporation tax because expenses will lower your company’s profits.

Double-check your records

Ensure your records and the supporting documentation are in accordance with each other. Be sure that any sales that have been made but have not yet been paid for are recorded as debts due, not as income.


Update Staff Records

Ensure that all of your staff’s records, particularly those pertaining to payments, benefits, and costs are current. This is to avoid any tax penalties or National Insurance errors.


Hire an Accountant

Hiring a competent accountant who can learn all there is to know about your company in confidentiality and transparency will make your year-end account and tax reporting and filing the easiest tasks possible! HMRC offers these services with satisfactory results and in an orderly professional manner.


Be mindful of meeting the deadline for submitting your year-end accounts

You may submit your accounts to HMRC Companies House for assessment and consultation. If you have modified the accounting period with Companies House, the deadline can vary. Check out the website of Companies House for the following details:

  • Within 9 months following the conclusion of your company’s fiscal year, submit any subsequent annual accounts to Companies House, and we will assist you with the filing and documentation of your tax and accounting needs.
  • HMRC can also file and work out your Company Tax Return at the utmost professional standards.
  • HMRC can receive payment for your corporate tax or you can negotiate that the business owes no tax or any other payable. This can be done after 9 months and 1 day following the conclusion of your accounting period.
