Accounting obligations in the micro-enterprise regime
Under the micro-enterprise regime, the entrepreneur is no longer obliged to keep accounts and produce annual accounts. You just have to:
- Keep a recipe book, and, in some cases, keep a record of purchases.
- The recipe book contains all of the day-to-day recipes in detail, supported by invoices or any other supporting documents.
The purchase register is a summary of the purchases made each year. It specifies in particular the third party concerned, the date of the transaction, the method of payment and the references of the supporting documents (invoices, notes, tickets, etc.). It must be held only when the activity consists mainly of selling goods, supplies and foodstuffs to be consumed on the spot or to take away, or to provide accommodation services.
