Why do I need to send my paperwork every week?
We ask you to send us your paperwork every week so that we can complete the work on your behalf throughout the month. This ensures we are able to deliver your Management Accounts on time every month. And we cover the postage costs!

- All purchase invoices – (clearly annotated how paid – i.e. cash, cheque, card – and especially if personal funds used)

I need more Freepost labels, what do I do?
Just send us a quick email at firstname.lastname@example.org to request more prepaid labels and we’ll send them to you.
How long does it take for data to reach Square and be scanned?
Square Freepost labels are first class post (Royal Mail’s Service Level Agreement for delivery is 10 working days for all first class post). Your data is scanned and uploaded on the day it's received.
What do you do with my hard copy data?
Your data is scanned (to BS10008 standard) and stored securely in electronic format. HMRC require data to be retained for six years but they’re happy for it to be kept in electronic format. Our standard process is to securely destroy all paperwork after three months.
When will my Square direct debit be claimed?
Your payment will be taken monthly on or around the 15th of the month (the date will be detailed on each invoice raised).
When is my VAT due?
Square will flag this as part of the monthly process, but if you’re in any doubt, you can check by using the following link: https://www.gov.uk/vat-payment-deadlines.
