Limited Time Free Ecommerce accounting training. Grow Your practice!

Are you a bookkeeper or accountant. Are your clients moving to online? 

The pandemic has caused two major shifts. Firstly, existing bricks and mortar businesses moved online during the pandemic and have stayed there. At the same time more and more people are starting ecommerce businesses. 

In 2020, there were 20,000 ecommerce businesses on companies house. There are now 120,000. It is more and more likely that existing or new clients are going to approach you where they are selling online.

Taking on an ecommerce client expecting them to have the same bookkeeping and tax requirements is a huge mistake. Not only are the marketplaces like Amazon complex. There are also complicated tax rules based on where the item is stored, where its shipping to and what taxes you are registered for.

Last year we spoke to a prospect who wanted to get a second opinion on his VAT obligation. They already had an accountant, a decent one with years of experience. But no experience of ecommerce.

We found that over the last two years they had underreported VAT by £50,000. Their current accountant was shocked. Luckily for them we worked with them to resolve the issue, but not many clients are as forgiving.

Assumptions that this is easy or just like other businesses can mean expensive mistakes. Lost clients. Bad reviews. And even claims against your indemnity insurance.
