    Micro entity ltd company. Spreadsheet needee 15th Sep 18 at 1:39 PM
    Hi all does anyone have an excel sheet that would suit a micro entity ltd business.

    Also when doing first years returns do i take the figures from this spread sheet and submit online using the gov gateway?
    Or do you actually have to upload the excel file ??

    Thank you.

    Nope not a clue. That's why I'm asking questions in good time to learn at least the basics. I'm.sure we all started nieve but what separates the stupid is those to seek information to learn and stay legal

    then you need to pay a professional to do it for you instead of failing to learn how to do it for free
    It takes a minimum of 3 years to qualify as a "professional" accountant...

    I'm not aware of any spreadsheet solution for preparing accounts for a UK Limited Company. Most companies will use an accounting package, e.g. Sage, QuickBooks, FreshBooks etc. and the services of an accountant.

    You do not want to fall foul of the law, so I would recommend that you find a good local accountant, and use the accounting package they recommend.

    You probably need to run a payroll as well, and your accountant will be able to help with a solution for this also. (Mine used to charge 25 plus 1 per employee for micro enterprises).
