Amazon Accounting and Bookkeeping Services

Plenty of buyers with limited data

Amazon Sellers know they have limited control over every aspect of their business when choosing to sell on the Amazon marketplace vs direct to consumer. Extracting valuable information is a challenge, especially when it comes to tracking revenue and expenses.

What is an Amazon Accountant

An Amazon Accountant is someone who understands how your supply chain works, and how to properly account for cash from purchase to sale/manufacture to sale with all of the connected moving parts (FBA fees, marketing spend, returns, product in transit/prep/storage, delay in payout).

Amazon accounting often requires additional technology to sit between the marketplace and accounting system (WMS warehouse management system, IMS inventory management system, sales transaction data system) to keep a pulse on cash flow. Controlling the data layer and what becomes the source of truth are core to proper Amazon accounting services.

Amazon’s payment schedule, which typically disburses funds to sellers every two weeks, can cause discrepancies in cash flow recognition. When choosing an accounting solution, your partner has to understand the relationship between all the moving parts, in the right order.

Amazon Sellers Need Specialists Not Generalists

It’s easy for eCommerce businesses to end up with financial statements that give an incomplete or inaccurate picture. There are a few reasons why this happens so often:

COGs and Inventory Process

Fluctuating supplier and shipping costs, inventory tracking, returns and discounts. Pulling that all together in a meaningful way is challenging. We can help you build new processes or improve your current ones.

Technology Gap

Connecting the right technology in the right way can provide a real-time pulse on your business, empowering proper cash flow management and more accurate forecasting. We’ll guide you in choosing or optimizing your current tech stack so that it’s tailored for your business needs.

Lack of Expertise

Standard accountants often lack the specialized knowledge required to make sense of Amazon specific data, how selling on Amazon actually works. From setting up a correct chart of accounts to understanding Amazon specific expenses an Amazon seller incurs selling on the platform, you need a professional Amazon accounting solution.
