I have retired and am no longer trading. I would like to prepare my books before my current year end (31st March) so I can give them to my accountant in good time but am I right in thinking the Year End Tool won’t run until 1st April?
The year end tool picks up your year end based on what’s entered in the company settings (this may very well be 31st March 2017 in your case).
The best thing to do is either wait until 1st April so you can close off your accounts then, or ask your accountant what they would need. They may be able to work with your profit and loss and balance sheet as they are. Of course, if they require anything from your account and you’re unsure about, we are happy to try and point you in the right direction.
