What does an accountant do?
– Accounting services
A personal accountant is a financial professional who provides services to individuals to help them manage their personal finances. The main tasks of a personal accountant in the UK include:
Budgeting and financial planning
A personal accountant helps individuals create a budget and develop a financial plan to achieve their financial goals, such as saving for retirement, buying a home, or paying off debt.
Tax services, tax advice and compliance
A personal accountant helps individuals minimize their income tax liability and ensure compliance with tax laws by calculating your personal tax allowance, preparing and filing a tax return as well as providing tax advice; this also includes inheritance tax.
Bookkeeping services refer to the process of recording and organizing financial transactions for a business. This includes tasks such as tracking money, such as income and expenses, reconciling bank statements, and maintaining accurate records of financial transactions. Bookkeeping services are an essential part of managing a business’s finances, as they provide a clear and accurate picture of a business’s financial health.
Payroll services provided by an accountant involve managing employee pay, tax withholding, and benefits. Accountants process payroll payments, maintain employee records, deduct taxes and benefits, file tax forms, and provide payroll advice to ensure accurate and timely payment of employees.
VAT preparation involves the process of preparing and submitting VAT returns to the tax authorities. This includes recording all VAT transactions, calculating the amount of VAT due, and preparing and filing VAT returns.
