Retail business accounting is a technique that values all stock based on each item’s selling price rather than the acquisition price. This method gives you a way to keep track of costs to see losses and what’s left over. And they use the estimated retail cost to work out the value of items in the inventory.

With Sage Accounting software for retail shops, you can collaborate securely with your accountant in real-time. Your accountant will help you check your shop's books before submitting a tax return to Revenue. They can also advise on how much tax you should pay.
