What accounting procedures must be followed if I'm selling nutritional products in addition to my consultancy services?

When selling nutritional products in addition to offering consultancy services, it's essential that you implement the proper accounting procedures. Here's a few things you need to consider:

  • Inventory Accounting: Nutritional products are tangible items, so you will need to track inventory. You must accurately record the cost of goods sold and maintain up-to-date inventory counts. This includes monitoring for spoilage or theft.
  • Revenue Recognition: For your consultancy services, you may follow a different revenue recognition method as compared to your product sales. Ensure you recognize your consultancy revenue as you earn it, not when you receive payment.
  • Expense Allocation: Some expenses may be directly tied to either your product sales or your consultation services, while others may be shared. It's important to allocate these costs appropriately for accurate financial reporting.
  • Tax Requirements: Depending on your location and the nature of your products and services, different tax laws may apply. You'll want to understand entirely how to collect, report, and pay any sales or service tax obligations.

As these procedures can complex, employing a professional bookkeeper or accountant can ensure you are following all necessary procedures and help keep your business finances in order.
