Sole Trader Simple Accounts, Tax and Basic Accounts Spreadsheet
Suitability of the Sole Trader Accounts Package
The easy accounting package consists of two excel accounts spreadsheets, sales accounts spreadsheets and expense accounts spreadsheets for purchases with a financial accounting file that produces the year end income and expenditure account including the tax liability and an automated excel copy of the Form 11E tax return. No bookkeeping or accounting knowledge is required as the bookkeeping system works on single accounting entries using basic accounting spreadsheets no more complicated than making lists.
Value Added Tax
The easy accounting basic spreadsheets in the sole trader accounts software package does not record vat inputs and outputs and is therefore not suitable as a vat registered self employed bookkeeping system or likely to be vat registered during the financial year.
Business Bank Account
Sole trader accounts have a business bank account although the majority do. If the business is operating a business bank account then the accounting records should include the entries to that account. The sole trader accounts package does include a bank account spreadsheet.
The sole trader accounts package does not include a wages interface and does not have the facility to be used with the integrated payroll software. The self employed accounting package has these additional facilities which would be a better choice if employees are likely to be employed during the financial year.
If the sole trader has no employees and will not exceed the vat threshold then the sole trader accounts package is the basic accounting choice. Alternatively choose the self employed accounting package for your small business accounting software
