Why should I prepare annual accounts?
It's a UK statutory requirement
- It is a UK statutory requirement if your business is either a limited company, LLP, charity, association or a society.
- This means that it is your responsibility to make sure that your annual accounts are accurate and submitted on time.
- HMRC can issue large fines and subsequently close down entities if annual accounts are not submitted.
- They will also be used to prepare a Corporation Tax return for HMRC and estimate the amount of Corporation Tax owed by your company.
