How can I effectively manage my bookkeeping when I source electrical supplies from various places?

Managing bookkeeping effectively when sourcing electrical supplies from various places can be a complex task, but with careful organization and the right support, it can become much more manageable. Here are a few tips:

  • Keep Detailed Records: Be meticulous with your purchases and expense tracking. Maintain a detailed log of where, when, and how much you’ve spent on each item. This will help not only with tax deductions but also with managing your overall budget.
  • Utilize Accounting Software: Implementing a robust accounting system can automate much of the financial tracking process and reduce the likelihood of errors. Accounting software can aggregate data from different sources, providing an accurate financial snapshot of your business at any given time.
  • Hire a Professional: If accounting isn't your area of expertise or you simply don't have the time, consider hiring a professional. Bench Accounting offers comprehensive bookkeeping services for various industries to ensure all your financial affairs are in order.

Is depreciation of my tools and equipment something I need to account for in my bookkeeping?

Yes, the depreciation of your tools and equipment is an important factor in your bookkeeping. Depreciation is the gradual decrease in the value of an asset over time, and it is a legitimate business expense that is tax-deductible. It affects your business's net income and overall balance sheet, so it should be properly tracked and recorded in your bookkeeping system. A professional bookkeeper can help ensure that this is done accurately.

Does Bench outsource bookkeeping?

Nope! All bookkeeping is completed in-house.

How much time each month will I have to spend managing my Bench account?

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.
