We know bookkeeping for art gallerys

Running an art gallery comes with its own set of unique bookkeeping issues. Firstly, art galleries deal with a complex mixed tax system due to the varied nature of their sales. As galleries buy and sell internationally, they may have to pay or collect VAT or sales taxes from multiple tax jurisdictions, which can be difficult to keep track of and manage. Moreover, laws regarding art dealings are often intricate and vary by location. But worry no more. Bench helps you navigate through these complexities by providing clear, concise, and compliant bookkeeping service specifically tailored for art galleries.

What is the best way to handle inventory accounting for artworks in my gallery?

The best way to handle inventory accounting for artworks in your gallery is to implement a perpetual inventory system. This system involves consistently updating your records for each piece of artwork sold, purchased, or otherwise modified. However, managing such a system can become complex without professional assistance. Hiring an experienced bookkeeper familiar with the art industry can ensure that your inventory accounting is always up-to-date and accurate, allowing you to focus more on running your business. They can help you navigate cost methods such as Specific Identification and Average Cost, as well as guide you through the complexities of capitalization rules, cost of goods sold (COGS) and other core accounting principles.
