I am only just starting up, however have registered as a Limited Company as was advised to to limit liability etc. I have only done 5 hours work this year (am on maternity leave technically) and am really not planning on doing much more until I launch in the new year properly.
How hard would it be to do my end of year accounts myself and tax returns? The list that the accountant returned as to what she would do looks baffling and I have never had to deal with tax before, so am worried I will get confused. But she wants about £700 plus more for advice and P11D return etc, so I will be starting 2014 well in the red! Just seems a lot of money for not a lot of money earned this year.
Has anyone dealt with an accountant who charged any less than this - all 3 quotes I had were about the same price?
