Year-end is usually the busiest period for accounting firms. It’s when the company amalgamates with clients, consolidate data, preparing reports, and ticking off statutory deadlines.
Many accounting firms for peace of mind prefer to outsource the work especially during the year-end which is managed quickly and easily.
What is the Year-End Accounting?
Year-End Account is a closing adjustment period for the companies which includes accounting for Financial/ Annual Accounts.
Financial/Annual Accounts means the accounts prepared at the end of the financial year; for the benefit of external users such as shareholders, employees, supplies, bankers, and authorities. Financial accounts normally include:
- Directors Report.
- Balance Sheet.
- Profit and Loss.
- Cash Flow Statement.
UK limited companies need to prepare year-end accounting which depicts a historical record of companies’ performance over a period, (usually one year) for example, if a company began on 26th October and the year-end date would be the 31st October then the financial year will run from 1st November to 31st October. Now the question is to whom and how to file year-end accounts?
A limited company needs to file certain documents to HMRC and Companies House.
What needs to be filed with HMRC?
- CT600 – Company tax return
- Company’s annual accounts
What needs to be filed with Companies House?
- Annual accounts
Companies House recommends that companies should try to align the accounting period with the financial year which ends 31 March, then the filing deadline would be 31 December, or as mentioned below (within 9 months of year-end.)
Companies House and HMRC listed key timelines for year-end:
