It is very important that if you work as a freelancer or contractor you keep detailed records of all your income and expenses related to the business.
You can keep these records in paper or electronic format, but electronic format is by far the most efficient option.
Online accounting software, like Surf Accounts and Receipt Bank, enables freelancers to manage their accounts through their mobile device. Using this software ensures electronic records are in an acceptable format should Revenue look to review your records.
In the case of both paper records and digital records you must store them for a minimum of 6 years.
