Calculating the tax adjustments

Interest

What interest income and/or interest payments do you adjust for in your accounts? Can you always calculate the adjustment yourself or does your advisor assist you? What changes to your software would assist you with making this adjustment?

Interest payments on some debt instruments need to be calculated annually.

My accountant does this but I would like to take over this role so would like to have the facility to do this easily.

My Accountant does this but as previous, I would like to take over doing this myself and so the facility to do this easily is welcome.

We don't carry any debt other than shareholder loans. These have interest loaded periodically and posted through to the balance sheet.

As an individual/small business, I keep a record of monthly accrued interest and RWT paid, and use that data in my accounts.

My advisor does it all. I would not use software to do it myself.

It's just a matter of asking for the interest information from your financiers if you don't already get it and asking your accountant for help with percentage adjustments if it's part business and part private. I think it can be done, although it is more work.

I always use an adviser, which to minimize costs, means that I am unlikely to be able to use AIM and a PAYE system of book keeping.

Interest is added to our accounting system monthly when we balance for end of month so this is easy.

My Tax Advisor does this, but could probably do myself with accounting package.

I would probably leave this in the hands of our accountant, as at present.

Currently done by our advisor, but I expect Xero could tweak thing to accomodate, as the data should already be there.

I record interest off the monthly bank statements. I assume that this would be regarded as close enough, and I would not be required to accrue daily interest to the end of the month.

We journal our interest payments monthly so we have an accurate picture monthly.
