What type of tax deductions should I be aware of as a Virtual Assistant, and how can your bookkeeping services help?

As a Virtual Assistant, you can potentially be eligible for a variety of tax deductions. These may include deductions for the home office, office supplies, software subscriptions, telecommunications expenses, or professional development costs, among others. However, navigating tax laws can be complicated and specifics can vary depending on your location and individual circumstances.

As a virtual assistant working on multiple projects, how will Bench Accounting differentiate my income streams and expenses for accurate bookkeeping?

As a virtual assistant, Bench Accounting understands the unique challenges you face when managing multiple income streams and expenses. Our bookkeeping service applies a methodical approach to categorize and keep track of all incoming and outgoing transactions. We use a range of categories tailored to the type of revenue or expense. For instance, each revenue stream can be treated as a separate 'income' category and the associated expenses would be allocated to their appropriate 'expense' categories.

Every month, you'll receive detailed financial statements that can differentiate income and expenses from each of your projects. This way, you can see clearly how much you're making and spending on each project. This not only ensures accurate bookkeeping but also provides insights that are crucial to your decision-making process. At Bench, we're not just delivering data, we're offering clarity on your business finances.
