Why become a bookkeeper/accountant?
The UK has over 5 million private sector businesses, a number which is growing by around 250,000 per year. An even more impressive figure – and one especially relevant for you – is that 99% are micro, small and medium sized enterprises (MSMEs).
Many of these MSMEs will need help to fulfil the two most important legal requirements they’re asked to by HMRC: returning financial reports each year and the recording and paying of any staff. It is a legal requirement to maintain financial records and submit accurate reports to the relevant authorities as regards tax, VAT PAYE etc. Many MSMEs struggle to keep up with the recording of financial details, tax returns, VAT returns etc…and sadly mistakes can prove very costly!
Ideal Schools provides a complete range of bookkeeping, payroll and taxation courses to help you become a self-employed bookkeeper or work within a financial environment.
