Ecommerce Accounting Challenges

Sales Tax Liability:

Sales tax for ecommerce businesses has become complicated in the last few years. Today, online retailers need to remit their taxes in nearly every area where they make a sale, but some sales channels collect sales tax automatically, while others require more specialized knowledge of sales tax laws.

Keeping Track of Seller Fees:

Many ecommerce platforms charge a monthly fee for sales that are made. However, platforms like Seller Central for Amazon sellers have a complex fee structure that can be difficult to track, such as fees for transactions, listings, order fulfillment, and advertising.

Money Management & Growing Pains:

Understanding profitability and the correct way to manage your business finances is a huge hurdle for business owners. How can you recognize red flags in your strategy?

Disorganized Records:

Tailored Ecommerce Accounting

We match each client with their ecommerce accountant based on the accountant’s skills and areas of expertise, as well as the complexity of the accounting and time required to create investor-grade monthly financials.

Why Use Ecommerce Accountants?

Ecommerce is a specialized business niche that comes with a different set of challenges than a brick-and-mortar business. Our team understands the nuances of the ecommerce market, from collecting sales tax and understanding supply chain management to reconciling multiple sales channels and calculating monthly Cost of Goods Sold.

The most important consideration when thinking about bringing on an ecommerce accountant is the cost. As your business grows and becomes your full-time job, your obligations increase, and so does your need for accurate books. This is a critical time to invest in accounting services with Seller Accountant.

How We Charge for Our Ecommerce Accounting Services

We charge a monthly flat rate that includes ongoing ecommerce accounting, as well as any discounted software billed through Seller Accountant and any CFO service add-ons. We believe charging by the hour only rewards inefficient work, so we determine monthly pricing based on the complexity of your ecommerce business accounting, number of sales channels, client responsiveness, and average monthly transactions.

Am I Ready For Ecommerce Accounting?

Read the list below to find out if your business is ready for Seller Accountant’s customized
e-commerce accounting.

If your sales are above $20,000 per month.

Seller Accountant serves startups and $10M companies but most of our clients really start needing help once they crest about $20,000 per month in revenue.

If you want to improve cash flow.

Managing cash is a delicate thing for a young company. Seller Accountant can help you understand where your money is going and can help you develop the plan to free up that needed cash.

If you are considering raising cash.

If you want to get a loan to help you grow your business you have to have really clean financial statements for the last few years. The time to work on your books is NOW before you need money!

If you aren’t as profitable as you wish you were.

Profitability is a tricky subject because almost ALL business owners struggle with it but nobody likes to talk about it. Have you ever had a conversation where a business owner brags about how much sales are growing, but when you ask them about profitability, they change the subject? Was it you? If you aren’t achieving consistent profitability, then something is wrong, and Seller Accountant may be able to help.

If you have a partnership or are considering one.

Having a good business partner can be a beautiful thing, or it can be a nightmare. Having clear and accountable books can help you have hard conversations with your partners or can put you in a position to bring on a good partner. I’ve never talked to a business owner who was glad that they had no idea where their money was going.

If you are planning for an exit or a purchase.

If your plan is to sell your company in the next 5 years now is the time to straighten out your accounting and separate any commingled entities. Business owners consistently get more for their companies when the books are clean. As acquisition activity around Amazon businesses heats up it will be critical to know where every dollar is going and how you are performing against the industry.

Seller Accountant Review

“The services I used from Seller Accountant and Tyler Jefcoat have been amazing. Tyler is a wealth of information and a tremendous resource and he over-delivers every time. So I highly recommend using his services. It’s pretty inexpensive compared to what you’re getting. He helped me get my ACOS down from 40% to less than 10% and that was through a recommendation he gave me.”
