Do your records need a spring clean

  • Keep records for a minimum of five years
  • Streamline administration with digital tools. This will also make accounting and bookkeeping with us easier.
  • Reconcile mistakes.
  • Account for any personal use of business stock.
  • Keep business expenses separate from any personal accounts.
