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.

Use point of sale accounting software to manage accounts in a more efficient and accurate way.  Sage Accounting will sync transactions from your business bank account automatically. You can snap and capture receipts on your phone as soon as you get them while you’re on the go using AutoEntry. And you can review your retail store books each week, month or quarter.
