Here are some tips on how best to keep your small business accounts ticking over
Separate your personal finances from your business finances. Although there is no requirement for a sole trader to have a separate business account it does make it easier to keep a track of all of your business expenses when it comes to completing your self assessment in January.
Keep up to date. There is nothing worse than trying to rush around finding invoices and receipts ready on the 30th January each year. Instead use a spreadsheet or if you prefer some accounting software and keep up to date with your income and expenditure as you go. Looking at this each month will not only help you in terms of filing at the end of the year but it will give you an idea of your tax liability as you go along as well.
