This plain-English guide tells you everything you need to know about small business bookkeeping, money management, tax returns and VAT.

Part 1 covers bookkeeping and small business accounts – you’ll discover how to grow your business and save hundreds of pounds in accountancy fees by taking control of your income and expenses.

Part 2 shows you how simple it is to complete a business tax return, using real-life illustrations – after reading this section you’ll have a solid understanding of how your business is taxed.

Part 3 contains an indispensable guide to VAT – how to register, how to fill in your VAT return, and how to reduce the amount of tax you have to pay.

The current edition also contains a 30-page section on how to improve cash flow in your business and boost your profits. The author reveals all the tricks you can use to keep the money rolling in, including billing tactics that ensure every invoice gets paid quickly... without upsetting your customers!

Keeping it Simple is a must read for:

 A really useful guide to bookkeeping and tax
Very clear guide to small business bookkeeping. Excellent chapters on how to save VAT and improve your cashflow. Layed out in logical, easy to follow chapters. Very useful for quick reference.
 Brilliant book and does what it says
Nicky B
Brilliant book and does what it says, keeps it simple. Having recently taken over all the accounts work I wanted a book I could cross reference from what I have been shown to do and be able to look up anything I'm not sure of and this book has managed to do it all. Nice sized text and diagrams, with small sized sections which doesn't make the book difficult to read and follow and easy to dip in and out of. Highly recommend.
 Highly Recommended
My favourite section has to be Section 8 because Cash is King and no matter how profitable a business is, it will fail if it does not have cash. That section alone is worth the price of the book. It is also up to date touching on issues like making tax digital and selecting and using cloud accounting software.
