Create a Budget

As we mentioned in our last post, financial planning is an essential part of building any business. Even if the budget you’re projecting is just for the time being and needs to be modified for the future, make sure you try and put together a realistic budget. Of course, a Glasgow accountant from our team will be more than happy to help you establish a budget from which your eCommerce business can grow.

Tax Planning

Another essential accounting service that your eCommerce business needs to plan for is tax filing and submission. In April 2019, Making Tax Digital (MTD) is being introduced which, as the name suggests, means that you will be required to file your taxes digitally to HMRC. This scheme is a much more efficient and eco-friendly way of tax preparation, however it will take some getting used to. If you have an eCommerce business and need some MTD guidance, The Kelvin Partnership can help out!


Finally, if you’re starting your own eCommerce business it is vital that you go about recording transactions and day-to-day cash flow in an organised way. Initially you may be able to handle the spreadsheets etc. but, once your business continues to grow and income/expenses become more complex it’ll be necessary to update your bookkeeping practice. We can recommend the most appropriate accounting data storage for your business to benefit from!
