What bookkeeping procedures should I follow to keep track of income from different clients as a pet trainer?

Keeping track of your income as a pet trainer from different clients requires diligence and some strategic bookkeeping procedures. Here are the recommended steps:

  • Create separate files: Dedicate a separate file or folder for each client to keep organized. This way, you can easily track income coming from each source.
  • Use a bookkeeping software: Investing in a bookkeeping software can help streamline the process. You can automatically categorize income from different sources, generate invoices, and also track unpaid payments.
  • Keep track of invoices: Ensure you generate and store each invoice for every service you provide. This can act as a proof of income.
  • Record religiously: Make sure you consistently record each payment as you receive them. Having this habit keeps your records up-to-date and prevents any guesswork at the end of the month.
  • Regular audits: Conduct regular audit of your books to confirm there are no discrepancies or missing entries in your records.

Finally, it's important to consult with a professional bookkeeper or accountant who understands your specific situation, and can provide tailored advice for your pet training business.
