I set up a VAT registered Ltd Co in November 2011 and purchased DIY Accounting (without Payroll) - great product saving a lot of time and money and allowing me complete visibility/controll
My Accounting Reference Date was obviously November 2012. Since incorporation I have not needed to pay myself and took one a dividend in March.
I have changed my Accounting Reference Date to 31st March to align with VAT returns etc, registered with HMRC for PAYE (with the intention of paying myself minimum wage) and purchased DIY Accounting with Payroll for year ending March 2013.
My question is: Can I use the accounts that I have already generated for my return in December 2012 by changing dates etc in the spreadsheets or would it be adviseable to purchase accounts ending March 2012 and re-input/copy data accross? I am director of the company which is Engineering Consultancy so there's not too much data in there!
