Running a miniature golf course business comes with several specific tax considerations. These may include:
- Depreciation: You may be able to claim depreciation on the land, buildings, and equipment used for the business. ·
- Amusement Tax: Some states impose an amusement or entertainment tax, which could potentially apply to your miniature golf course.
- Sales Tax: This may be applicable on any concessions or merchandise sold at your course.
- Employment Taxes: Payroll taxes will apply if you have employees working for you.
It's advisable to work with a professional bookkeeper or accountant as they can provide detailed advice and ensure you're meeting all necessary tax obligations.
Structuring financial accounting for ongoing maintenance and operational expenses for a miniature golf course involves several steps. First, identify and categorize these expenses such as wage and salaries, maintenance costs, utilities, insurance, and taxes.
Next, decide on the method of accounting you wish to use (cash or accrual basis) and properly record the expenses based on set dates. Cash accounting records transactions when cash changes hands while Accrual accounting recognizes revenues and expenses when they occur, not necessarily when cash changes hands.

They can help you ensure adherence to laws and regulations, provide valuable financial advice and business insights, and save you a lot of potential headaches in the long run.

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.
