Bossing your business as an online seller isn’t just about understanding the market you’ll be operating in.

You also need to have a firm grasp of accounting basics for your e-commerce business and the marketplaces that you will sell on, and the countries you want to sell to.

There really hasn’t been a better time to set up an online selling business, with a wealth of competing options at your disposal.

The problem, though, is that it might be tricky to decide which is right for you.

Enter, Maximise success as an online seller – our free guide to the basics of accounting for e-commerce businesses in the UK.

Accounting for e-commerce businesses

In the guide, we look at the different e-commerce platforms available to set up your online store, the accounting requirements involved, and how you can position yourself for business growth with the right accounting setup.

Accounting responsibility and processes differ based on a few key facts, including:

  1. The legal kind of business you decide to operate as
  2. The type of accounting process you choose
  3. Legitimate business expenses and making sure you claim them.

Beyond these factors, you then have to adjust to the accounting processes that each marketplace makes its sellers go through. Without the know-how you need, things can get complicated very quickly, which is why we created this guide packed with expert insights to keep you on track.
