I'm curious as to how others handle self assessment cases which require accounts prep.
I have always considered this to be two separate jobs a) prepare the accounts b)prepare the self asesment return to include accounts figures and any other income / allowances. Most of the time however I find myself dealing with the two jobs at the same time i.e. related to the self assesment deadline.
Does anybody prepare the accounts using a deadline based on the accounts year-end e.g. take a Sept year-end , accounts prep scheduled for x months after the year end and the tax return scheduled later on based on the related self assessment deadline .
Some of the PM softwares treat the two "jobs" as essentially one (e.g. Accountancy Manager) , others (e.g. Senta) have two separate jobs/workflows - which is partly what has raised this question in my mind
