AMAZON SELLER

Case Study

Accounting for Amazon sellers

Typical accounting is not going to work for the amazon seller, Accounting For Amazon Seller is way more challenging than the usual accounting process. If you are planning to become an amazon seller, a sound accounting base is necessary for your decision-making process. But don’t worry, you can focus more on making millions and leaving the accounting pressure to Meru Accounting. 

By allowing us to provide our accounting service, you are building a strong backbone for your business. Many businesses foray into the online market via Amazon, but only a few make it up to a profitable venture, because of accurate Bookkeeping and Accounting For Amazon Sellers. 

You might think of it as just a routine business activity. But think of the impact of inaccurate financial information, wrong decisions, and policies, the uncertainty of profitability on your business plus non-compliances with taxes such as Sales tax, etc., and most importantly the credibility of your business. No business can prosper without finance, it’s like blood for any business enterprise. It calls for essential financial management, which is not possible without accounting. 

core aspects for amazon sellers

Crucial accounting areas for amazon seller

Usually, every business has components that part a substantial portion of their books of accounts, the same is also for Amazon sellers. But the areas that you face trouble are with sales data, inventory, COGS, and sales tax compliance. Let us understand how it cannot trouble you anymore. 

Sales Data: Accurately recording the sales data is essential to determine profit accurately. You receive payments from amazon every two weeks. Small business owners and in-house bookkeepers may record the whole amount as sales. 

Does it truly represent sales? No, because there are also other activities such as FBA fees, shipping charges, sales tax, returns, warehouse fees, etc. The deposit is net of all these activities on the date of receipt. 

Yes, this is the loose end that needs proper classification, but if you are thinking of solving the issues manually, you will mess up with large sets of data and sell your time to bookkeeping and accounting software. Instead, we can be a great help by using the tool for automation of this process known as A2X. It connects the amazon seller account with accounting software Xero and QuickBooks. It will regularly update your books from the back end of Amazon so you can calm down. 

Inventory and Cost of Goods Sold (COGS): Proper recording of inventories and COGS items according to the accountancy rule is necessary unless you make an end with a loss according to books despite the profit earned. Our professional experts with the use of A2X can update the COGS and inventory information. 

Integration of professional experts can streamline the whole accounting process.

Sales tax Compliances 

The compliance for the e-commerce platform is troublesome, there are various laws of physical nexus, FBA nexus, and click-through nexus to determine your tax liabilities. Getting familiar and starting might delay your business, so it is better to give us a chance. 

We use a Sales Tax analytics tool that shows your sales tax exposure. It connects to your Amazon Seller Account and provides information about your nexus regarding the state’s taxes, Year wise sales detail for each state tax, and also the amount of taxes you owe for each of those states. 

How can you get started with bookkeeping for Amazon sellers?

Getting started with bookkeeping for Amazon sellers involves several key steps.  

Here are some steps you can take to get started with bookkeeping for your Amazon seller business:  

  1. Choose an accounting method: There are two accounting methods: cash and accrual. Cash accounting records transactions when cash is received or paid out. Accrual accounting records transactions when they occur, regardless of when cash is exchanged. Choose the accounting method that best suits your business needs. 
  2. Set up an accounting system: Setting up an accounting system involves creating a chart of accounts, which is a list of accounts used to track financial transactions. You can create a chart of accounts manually or use accounting software to automate the process. 
  3. Link your Amazon account: Connect your Amazon account to your accounting system to automatically import sales and expense data. This can save time and reduce errors. 
  4. Categorize transactions: Categorize transactions into appropriate accounts in your chart of accounts. For example, categorize sales as revenue and expenses as cost of goods sold, advertising expenses, or shipping costs. 
  5. Reconcile accounts: Regularly reconcile your accounts to ensure that your accounting records match your bank and credit card statements. This helps identify errors and ensures that your financial statements are accurate. 
  6. Prepare financial statements: Prepare regular financial statements, including income statements, balance sheets, and cash flow statements. These statements help you monitor your business’s financial health and make informed decisions. 
  7. Monitor tax obligations: Keep track of your tax obligations, including sales tax and income tax. Consider working with a tax professional to ensure compliance with tax laws.  
 

By following these steps, you can get started with bookkeeping for your Amazon seller business. Remember to stay organized and keep accurate records to make informed business decisions and ensure financial success.
