AN ACCOUNTANT WHO GETS YOUR BUSINESS

LET'S TALK SHOP

The world of e-Commerce is a rapidly changing landscape, with new technologies and payment gateways emerging all the time - and a basketful of ever-changing legislation governing everything from VAT to distance selling.

It’s crucial, therefore, to have an accountant that can keep pace. An accountant who can speak the language of e-Commerce and retail, and provide a genuinely consultative service rather than just the typical end-of-year totting up.

If your business is already online or tech-savvy, you’re perfectly placed to benefit from cloud accounting software too.

Our platform of choice, Xero, can be fully integrated with leading eCommerce solutions like Shopify or Magento and retailing apps, such as iZettle  - meaning automatic updates to your books every time you make a sale.

HOW WE HELP

By integrating Xero with your e-Commerce platform, we not only help automate much of your book-keeping, we also gain real-time insight into your key figures.

This enables us to provide informed business advice, cashflow projections, tax planning and more, while helping you better understand your sales patterns and inventory needs.

With years of experience in the retail, digital and e-Commerce worlds, we’ll also be able to provide tailored advice on VAT issues, distance-selling regulations and other tax matters, directly affecting your retail and/or online business.

eCOMMERCE & RETAIL KPIs
WHAT WE'LL HELP YOU TRACK
  • Wages to revenue: You need to know the amount of revenue created against your shop or online store’s wage expenditure. If this ratio sees more revenue than wage expenditure, you’re on the right path. If it’s the opposite, it’s time to look at how things can be improved.
  • Number of transactions or customers: Tracking how many customers visit or enter your store against how many sales are made will show you how successful your business is at converting sales. Now you have this figure you can cross reference it against your financial reports and see where you need to optimise stages in the sales process.
