    I don't wanna be rude mate but if your putting off getting customers cos your not sure the best way to do book keeping are you really that serious about doing it? If you are good luck with it but go knock as many doors as you can and when the money's coming in worry about the best way to record it!! Till you get really busy a simple spreadsheet or even on paper 2 columns is all you need. IN/OUT and at the bottom profit. Simples

    Oh yeah and for tax etc if not already registered etc just ring HMRC self assessment and they are actually pretty helpful. It's so simple to register they will ask for the info they need and your away. I dreaded the thought of sorting that side of it but as long as you keep receipts etc for expenses and keep records of what comes in your sorted. let us know how you get on hope it goes well
