Ecommerce Accounting FAQs

An ecommerce accountant is one that specialises in accountancy for businesses selling online.

We work with a wide range of ecommerce businesses, from sole traders and freelancers starting a new online business venture through to established limited companies with 7-figure turnovers. We accommodate both UK sellers and those wishing to sell into international marketplaces including dropshippers, Amazon FBA, private label and retail arbitrage sellers.

In terms of platforms, we work with B2C and B2B online businesses operating on platforms such as Shopify, Magento, Squarespace and Woocommerce as well as marketplace sellers on Amazon, eBay and Etsy. We also deal with multi-platform sellers who may need a solution to combine their streams into a single set of easily-digestible accountancy records.

Our pricing page gives a good overview of the package required for businesses at different stages of development based on annual turnover.

There is a huge array of specialist software out there for ecommerce sellers including apps and cloud accounting packages. It can be confusing as different platforms and marketplaces have different integrations available and even in some cases different VAT requirements.

We recommend Xero and Quickbooks as your accounting software as they integrate with a wide array of ecommerce platforms and marketplaces. Other accounting software does not have as large a depth of connections available. 

For new businesses, we set up your accounting system and integrate with your ecommerce platforms and marketplaces. We set up your accountancy software to ensure that you get real-time information, making it easy for you to understand your cash flow and manage your finances more effectively.

We are also happy to advise on the best PSPs (payment-service-providers) to suit your online business. We work with the top providers including Paypal, Stripe, and Worldpay and can advise on integration with your chosen ecommerce platform and accountancy package.

Whether you want to know about VAT requirements or want advice on how to improve your tax efficiency, our experienced online accountants can help you. The advice we provide to our customers is what sets us apart from others – we work with ecommerce sellers everyday and understand the challenges you face.

What’s more, unlike many traditional accountants our advice is completely free when you sign up to one of our ecommerce accounting packages.

Ecommerce accounting has many unique qualities to traditional accounting, making it difficult for non-specialist accountants to decipher.

Although tax liabilities and VAT requirements are universal in accounting, there are many unique differences which can make ecommerce accounting more tricky to handle. With many specialist ecommerce platforms and marketplaces, payment service providers and integrations it requires specialist knowledge to understand all the requirements properly.

Recently, we have seen the UK change their ecommerce VAT rules on 1 January 2021 and they were closely followed by the EU on 1 July 2021. This means that selling on ecommerce platforms has become a much more complex tax environment. Due to the meteoric rise of ecommerce businesses, there are few accountants who truly understand the new rules.

Whilst some generalist accountants will be able to navigate the ecommerce world successfully, there are many cases where unfamiliarity with the ecommerce accounting world could cause issues which impact your business.

Specific risks of using a traditional accountant for your ecommerce business include being unable to spot opportunities for tax efficiency improvements or even misreporting the amount of tax owed to HMRC possibly leading to a tax audit and fine. 

There are also more complex VAT requirements for online sellers – especially those selling abroad – so under-reporting your VAT and facing a penalty is also a very real possibility.

There is no minimum contract term required for our clients – all our contracts are on a rolling monthly basis, meaning there are no large and potentially unexpected fees usually associated with high-street accountants. 

Our fixed-fee pricing structure means that what is included in each level of plan is clear and transparent and you can clearly budget for accountancy costs. 

Ever had a meeting with your accountant and received an unexpected invoice afterwards? That won’t happen with us as unlike many traditional accountants we don’t charge for advice for our clients.

We are UK-based ecommerce accountants working remotely across the UK. We do not waste money on expensive offices, we focus on using the best tools available to provide a cost effective and value add service. As online accountants we are available at the drop of a hat to provide expert ecommerce accounting support for your business.

We communicate to our clients via phone, video call and email – you can even see our schedule and book a free 30-minute consultation with a qualified chartered accountant whenever suits you!

You will be in safe hands when you choose us as  your ecommerce accountant.

"Ben set my company up after talking to him about my food stall. He got me on quickbooks set it all up with some additional software so i didnt have to do anything except take photos of invoices. He has been great, giving me advice on whether to register for VAT, how i can get tax benefits out of my trailer equipment and to actually see if i am profitable or not."
