      Now I'll admit that I do so this from time to time some of my comments, like the one above, do have a kind of advice element to it. They guy is struggling with his finances but doesn't seem to think so. I'm merely pointing out its not working for him.

      I also assume you are including my comments about asking accountants as well. I've explained it many times but it's still the best advice in many situations where people come on asking simplisitic questions, leave with and an answer but still don't have a solution.

      But thanks for your input.

        If you're literally starting out and have no accounting experience, it's always worth taking on an accountant for the first couple of years to understand the ins and outs and get to grips with the various accounting procedures and cycles. You can't get a full picture from books, online fora and random reading of bits of HMRC manuals.

        I have 9 years' experience of working in accounts and ran the treasury department for a large company prior to going freelance but, after 15 years of trading, I still use an accountant for an end of year sense check as I know I don't know everything.

        Going it alone from a position of no experience is risky. Using an accountant is an expense, true, but is one that could save you a lot of money and a lot of time.

          Indeed. Like this guy for example...

            To be absolutely fair to you, I wonder if the only reason you incessantly state, 'Get an accountant' is because the sheer number of times it has been said means it is the only statement guaranteed to be correctly spelt and constructed.

            As to the above quoted, my confusion wonders if it might need a little tightening. Especially as you have been the spellchecker police to others in your time.

            Lead first by example?
