How to bring bookkeeping in-house: A step-by-step guide

In association with

As the world begins to reopen and business owners get back to doing what they do best, bookkeeping is likely to be low on the list - with income-generating work at the forefront of their minds after 18 months of upheaval.

However, with the tax system taking a turn towards more digital record keeping, in the form of Making Tax Digital (MTD) changes for voluntarily VAT-registered businesses in April 2022 and MTD for Income Tax Self Assessment (MTD ITSA) in April 2023, the argument for in-house bookkeeping has never been stronger.

Many traders may lack the skills or time to do this record-keeping themselves, making it the perfect opportunity for accountants to not only expand their portfolio but re-engage with clients and build closer relationships.

This step-by-step guide takes a look at:

  • How you can educate and support small business before the first changes in April 2022
  • Why these changes could be an opportunity to open the door to potential new clients who have never needed an accountant before
  • How in-house bookkeeping presents an opportunity to generate recurring monthly revenue in addition to the annual fee, which in turn helps the cash flow of your clients’ businesses
  • Why this is an opportunity to encourage clients to turn providing digital receipts and invoices into a habit rather than it being considered a chore
