Sole Traders


s a staple of our bookkeeping services we understand the needs of sole traders and the difficulties that can arise when you are running your own business with limited support.

When carrying out bookkeeping as a self-employed business set-up, it’s important that every financial transaction is recorded for both business and personal use.

This is to ensure everything is kept in order to keep your other financial records (such as accounts and VAT returns) as up to date and as accurate as possible.

Poor bookkeeping can lead to problems such as tax inspections, so it is very important that your books are correct from day one.

We can help you get organised and stay on top of paperwork, whether you are a Sole Trader, Partnership or Limited Company.

  • Help you run your business effectively by ensuring that your bookkeeping is up to date and accurate.
