What is year-end accounting?
Every limited company is legally required to submit year-end accounts to HMRC and Companies House. It is the process of preparing and finalising financial statements to show the company’s financial position and performance.
Year-end accounting includes tasks such as reconciling accounts, adjusting entries, calculating and reporting income and expenses, and preparing financial statements like the balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statement.
Not only does this crucial process allow companies to fulfil their tax obligations, but it also helps them to assess their financial health, make informed decisions, and provide transparent information to stakeholders. As a director, it can also help with the preparation of your self-assessment tax return.
At Archimedia Accounts, we specialise in year-end accounting services, ensuring your financial statements are accurate, compliant, and prepared with the utmost attention to detail. We can also help you to prepare for your personal Income Tax return. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

What are year-end accruals?
Year-end accruals are an accounting treatment used during the year-end accounts process to account for sales and expenses that have been completed but not yet invoiced. This is reflected by increasing sales in the annual accounts and showing a debtor in the statutory accounts, as the customer will eventually pay this amount.
How often can you change your accounting year-end?
You can change your accounting year-end, but there are rules to follow. If you want to change it, you can either make the period shorter or longer. If you make it shorter, you can change it as many times as you want. But if you make it longer, you can only change it every 5 years.
How long do you have to keep year-end accounts?
You need to keep your limited company accounting records for at least 6 years from the end of your accounting period. Some records need to be held for longer, such as board meeting minutes and statutory books. Sole traders and partnerships only need to keep the records for 5 years after 31st January.
