Accounting for Startups FAQs

Accounting for Start-ups FAQs

Do you need an accountant for a start-up business?

It is not a legal requirement for a business to have an accountant. If the owner or any other member of the company feels comfortable preparing financial records and filing them, that is perfectly inline with the law.

However, it can be a lot of someone to deal with, especially if they have no prior experience in accounting. Tax returns and records still need to be submitted on time and accurately after all.

What accounting is needed for a start-up business?

Start-up businesses need to track the following financial items in accordance with reports send to Companies House:

  • Bank statements
  • Debit/credit card statements
  • Payroll (if the business has employees)
  • Invoices
  • Proof of payment
  • Startup expense
  • Incoming payments
  • Bills
  • Tax returns
  • Financial statements

How much is an accountant for a start-up business?

Accountancy rates will depend on the level of work that the company requires. For example, one-off services will be cheaper than more specialist and comprehensive services, but will likely lack the value and depth the latter can give.
