    Hi guys,

    Is it necessary to invoice residential customers so that you can prove your income to hmrc or do you just need to maintain records of what your income and expenditure was ? I mean because a lot of it is cash payments is there an form of proof required like an invoice or receipt ?

    There Is certainly no need to invoice as far as I am aware. I keep a daily record, in my work diary, of every job done and payment made. That is sufficient for tax purposes.

    I used to leave a receipt in the latter box after each clean however after few months I realized that too many receipt books thrown away - and they cost £3 each : )
