Do you need help with the bookkeeping for your small business in Somerset, UK?

Bookkeeping is the recording, on a day-to-day basis, of the financial transactions and information relating to a business.

Bookkeeping builds the foundations on which your accounts are built, so accuracy is vital to ensure your accounts are strong.

What is Bookkeeping and why is it so important for business owners?

Bookkeeping is the art of recording your financial information so that it’s easy to see what money is coming in and what you’re spending.

In order for your business to be successful, you need to be balancing the books every single month, otherwise, you might struggle with paying for things like stock, suppliers and even your taxes.

It’s a good habit you really want to be getting into from the very beginning of running your own business.

Bookkeeping helps you budget for your business, prepare for tax returns, keep your business organised and so much more. It’s something you shouldn’t avoid if you want to keep your finances in check and to make sure HMRC doesn’t come and cause you even more problems.


Here are six reasons why bookkeeping is important for your business.

  1. Helps You Budget Accurately

  2. Keeps You Prepared for Tax

  3. Maintains Organised Records

  4. Easier to See Business Targets

  5. Meeting Government Regulations

  6. Gives You Extra Peace of Mind
