As a machinist, you may have several tax deductions available to you. This can include costs related to tools and equipment, maintenance and repair costs, uniform and protective clothing expenses, professional development expenses, and potentially more. It largely depends on your specific circumstances and local tax laws.
A professional bookkeeper can assist you by keeping thorough and accurate records of all your expenses which could potentially be claimed as a deduction. They can also help you understand the local tax laws and regulations that apply to your profession. Moreover, their experience and knowledge can guide you in identifying less obvious expenses that can be tax-deductible.
Remember, the specific deductions a machinist can claim can vary greatly based on various factors, and what may be valid one year could change the next. Ensuring you have a professional bookkeeper can save you both time and money in the long run.
Bookkeeping services can play a crucial role in maintaining your machine shop's inventory and costing records. Here's how:
- Inventory Management: Skilled bookkeepers can help track inventory levels and monitor changes. They ensure that all purchases and sales are recorded accurately, helping to prevent discrepancies in inventory records.
- Costing: They also play a crucial role in calculating and tracking production costs. This includes direct costs like raw materials and indirect costs like overheads. Understanding the total production costs is critical for setting sales prices and making profitability forecasts.
- Financial Reporting: Bookkeepers help generate financial reports, offering valuable insights into your inventory and costing situation. These reports are vital tools for decision-making and can lead to more informed business strategies.
By managing these aspects effectively, bookkeeping services allow machine shop owners to focus on their core business activities without getting overwhelmed by financial management.
Bench Accounting provides comprehensive bookkeeping services that encompass various aspects of your financial records management, including purchase and depreciation of machinery.

The purchase of machinery will be recorded as an asset in your financial books, while the depreciation is tracked over the expected life of the machinery.

Additionally, we also ensure your records adhere to regulatory standards and tax laws with regard to asset depreciation.
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.
