Year End Accounts Service

We’ve all been there, it’s getting close to “Year end” and as usual you have put off preparing your year end accounts for HMRC.  There is always something better and more interesting to do. It’s always a hassle and time consuming.

Year end accounts service from Mazuma

Is “Year End” the same for all Businesses?

No, your year end will be dependent on what type of business you are.  

In the accountancy world, every business needs to prepare their complete accounts for HMRC and Companies House one year at a time. The ‘year end’ refers to the day that your company’s financial period ends.

If you’re a Sole Trader, we recommend setting your year end at April 5th – to match the end of the tax year. This avoids confusion with HMRC!

If you run your business through a Limited Company, then Companies House will set your year end as a year after the end of the month in which you created the company.

  • Statutory accounts (either full, abbreviated or micro)
Knowing which version to file can be a challenge in itself! Statutory accounts must include:
  • a ‘balance sheet’, which shows the value of everything the company owns, owes and is owed on the last day of the financial year
  • a ‘profit and loss account’, which shows the company’s sales, running costs and the profit or loss it has made over the financial year
  • notes about the accounts
  • a director’s report (unless you’re a ‘micro-entity’)
And if all that wasn’t enough, you also have to make sure your accounts are prepared following one of the following accounting standards:
  • International Financial Reporting Standards
  • New UK Generally Accepted Accounting Practice
Yes. HMRC require your Company Tax Return within 12 months after the end of the accounting period – (although you have to pay your corporation tax 9 months and 1 day after your company year end, so in real terms you need to get your company tax return within 9 months of the year end. See the handy table below!) Companies House require your annual accounts within 9 months of your year end. Year End Accounts What To Do Table
