Hi everyone, I've recently started working for myself and have been using an account book that I bought from Sally beauty supplies, it's also available from most beauty catalogues. My salon owner who has worked for herself for 15+ years says this is making things more complicated. I was wondering if anyone here uses any other good accounting forms that I would find easier?


Any info would help me greatly, thank you x

I've seen those books and they look pretty standard for the industry.
What does your salon owner use or recommend?
At the end of the day, the taxman will want to see a record of income and expenditure, any system will do, but if it's complicated you will be less likely to fill it in daily.
Stick to a simple system that you get along with, the Sally books look ok to me.
If you are going to use an accountant to complete your year end tax returns, have a word with them, they may have standard forms that if you use, will make their job simpler (and cheaper) for you.

Good luck, but don't be misled by your salon boss, she won't be carrying the can if the taxman is on your case.

My salon owner uses a accounts form which appears to be pretty simple and self explanatory whereas the sallys book includes a lot that I don't use, I think I may convert to this as it makes more sense to me. Thank you for your help x
