Accountants for Ecommerce Sellers

on Amazon, eBay, Etsy ,Shopify or Dropshippers And more...

One of the biggest changes to life over the last few years has been the rise of eCommerce and now even sole traders can look like big businesses.

We’ve seen a big rise in the number of clients trading on platforms like eBay and Amazon, some full-time and some as a side hustle. Although they all trade in different things on different platforms it is clear that they all share one common denominator - they are all incredibly busy. This means that for many people they just don’t have the time to deal with the admin. They don’t have the time to do their bookkeeping They don’t have the time to post their accounts They don’t have the time to run a payroll. The good news is that there are some very practical ways that we can help.

Getting your systems right

The high-pressure nature of online sales means that it is more important than ever to get your systems right.

One of the great features of online trading is that almost any system you use can be tweaked to integrate with others, so you can connect up your CRM to Amazon or your accounting system to eBay.

This means that with our help you can integrate all of your systems so that they do the heavy lifting, leaving you free to concentrate on the most important aspects - sourcing the goods and making the sales.

We have years of experience in integrating systems and our specialised cloud-based accounting systems integrate seamlessly with all the major packages.

We can help you set up links between your software, platforms, bank accounts and payment processors meaning that your transactions run smoothly and your accounting is accurate.

Concentrate on the sales and not the admin

If you are selling online then you know that keeping a close eye on the market is paramount.

If you are a few seconds behind your competitors, then you are dead and this means that as the owner of an online enterprise you need to be on the ball.

What you don’t need is to to be distracted by filing your confirmation statement to Companies House or reconciling your Paypal account to your sales.

That’s where Accountax can make a real difference. We’ll take care of the bookkeeping making sure that everything is reported accurately.

We can produce management accounts that give you a clear sight of your business performance by using bespoke KPIs.

And we’ll make sure that you never miss a deadline, whether it is your VAT return or your end of year accounts, we’re there.

Just think about how much more you could sell if you had someone to deal with all the back-office jobs for you!

eCommerce Businesses we work with

Get started immediately

There is no need to register your business with Companies House if you decide to become a sole trader.As a result, you can start working as soon as you are ready.

Personal Responsibility for Business

Unlike the owner of a limited liability company, sole traders bear full responsibility for all decisions and consequences. All debts related to the business's financial difficulties must be paid out of personal assets if there is not enough money in the business. This applies to all property of a sole proprietor, including their house, which can lead to personal bankruptcy.

Fast and Simple Registration

The only thing sole traders are legally required to do after having started working this way, is register as self-employed for tax purposes. This is effectively you telling HMRC to expect your Income Tax via the Self-Assessment Tax Return

Barriers to finance

sole traders often find it difficult to raise finance to fund their business. They may struggle with expansion in the future.

Full control of the business

As the sole owner of your business, you have full control over it. Without any shareholders or directors in the equation, you’re free to make your own decisions and run your business exactly how you want.
