Fair enough, I get your point there. But I don't use mine every month, I keep a few months worth of receipts etc and then hand them over, because we just don't turn over enough to warrant anything more, really.That's interesting to hear Gemma. Contractors get paid monthly so their accountant would be doing something for them every month.
My clients (sole traders through to limited companies) pay me on a monthly basis. It is beneficial for both parties - the client can spread payments and the accountant knows they will get paid.
I can see your view though - especially if it means extra work for you.
