    But the £100 isn't income. It's irrelvant for the books as it's not a cash figure. 4k is cold hard cash on the books. I think you are way over thinking this.

    So where do you think interest on the business bank account falls?

    Surely all income to the company is counted when calculating profit. Are you saying this 4k isn't counted as profit at the end of...

    He's kind of right but he's still got it wrong, as usual.
