Scaling your eCommerce business requires a perfect understanding of revenue and expenses.
Our eCommerce accountants know that your interest isn’t the profit and loss statement or the balance sheet in itself, rather the financial health of your eCommerce business and the story those numbers tell.
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:
Multi channel sales data, fluctuating supplier and shipping costs, inventory tracking across multiple platforms and warehouses, 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.
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.
Standard accountants often lack the specialized knowledge required to make sense of eCommerce-specific data. From setting up a correct chart of accounts to tracking ad spend across multiple channels, you need a professional eCommerce accountant on your team.
Most eCommerce businesses have never seen proper eCommerce accounting in action, and the bar is set pretty low. Wondering if your current accounting is being done correctly? We offer a no cost evaluation and will walk you through the results.

Did you know that all of these items are dependent on having a proper eCommerce accounting solution in place?
If you need additional cash for a new product launch or to accelerate growth, lenders will want a minimum of 12 month trailing financial statements, utilizing the accruals method of accounting.
If your accounting is wrong you won’t know if you have the cash flow to purchase more product or when you need to adjust pricing
Effective planning requires an understanding of a company’s cash flow. Knowing when significant expenses or income will occur can help in strategizing for tax liabilities.
Without accurate accounting, it becomes nearly impossible to correctly assess how much you owe in taxes or claim in deductions, leading to potential legal consequences and financial losses.
Proper accounting allows for regular reconciliation of the sales tax collected versus what is owed, identifying discrepancies and allowing for timely corrections, and is your core support in the case of an audit.
