Managing a pet daycare involves various tax considerations. Some of the key factors to keep in mind are:
- Business Expenses: Many expenses related to running your pet daycare, such as pet supplies, employee wages, rent, utilities, insurance, and advertising, can be deducted from your income to reduce your taxable profit.
- Self-Employment Tax: As a pet daycare owner, you're typically required to pay self-employment tax, which covers Social Security and Medicare taxes.
- State and Local Taxes: Don’t forget about the state and local taxes that your pet daycare business might be subject to. These can include property taxes on your business location and sales tax on the pet care products you sell.
Given the complexity of tax obligations, it can be very beneficial to work with a bookkeeper who's familiar with the pet daycare industry. They can help ensure you're taking full advantage of deductions and aren't overlooking any important tax considerations.
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.
