Running a dance studio involves various complex financial transactions. Several specific accounting considerations need your attention:
- Revenue Recognition: Classes might be paid for upfront but delivered over a period of time. It's essential to recognize this revenue correctly over the service period, not just when the payment comes through.
- Instructor Expenses: You'll likely have several instructors, possibly with different pay rates and hours. These need to be tracked and reported accurately.
- Depreciation: Dance studios contain significant capital assets, such as dance floors, mirrors, and sound systems. Their value decreases over time, which should be accounted for.
- Inventory: If you sell dancewear or other items at your studio, you'd need to implement an inventory tracking system; it should account for purchases and sales of inventory.
- Liability Insurance: As a dance studio, carrying liability insurance for potential injuries is a must. You need to track these premium payments and any other expenses related to insurance.
It can be overwhelming to manage these considerations on your own. Hiring a professional bookkeeper ensures your finances are managed correctly and you remain compliant with all relevant regulations.

Nope! All bookkeeping is completed in-house.
Your bookkeeper will be your main point of contact, but at times you might hear from another member of your team. This is usually when your bookkeeper goes on vacation, is sick, or otherwise unavailable.
We handle the bookkeeping for you but sometimes we’ll need your input, especially at year-end. On average, expect to spend 15 minutes each month answering questions for your bookkeeper, or uploading supporting docs.
