The Importance of Small Business Bookkeeping

The Importance of Small Business BookkeepingBy Greg Lindberg, 1800Accountant Writer

In the eyes of most small business owners, bookkeeping is likely one of their least favorite things to do. When you sit down and think about it, who truly enjoys pouring over lengthy spreadsheets and calculating financial figures that will often make your head spin? Even though bookkeeping is not a highly popular task it is still one of the most important priorities on any business owner’s to-do list.

Bookkeeping is a practice that involves maintaining all of the financial records of a business. It is vital to keep a keen eye on the profits a small business generates, the money it pays in the form of expenses, and the taxes it incurs on a regular basis. When you can see a clear snapshot of this information in front of you, the financial side of your small business will immediately become very important to you.

How are C-Corporations Taxed?

By Greg Lindberg, 1800Accountant.com Writer

Do you have plans to launch a brand new small business? Are you ready to take the dive toward a profitable and rewarding future? If you intend to become a newly crowned business owner, it is vital to ensure you know what types of business structure options exist so that you choose the one that is most appropriate for you. This includes understanding how each type of business entity is taxed. One option is to go with a C corporation, which is considered the most traditional type of business structure.

When it comes to filing federal taxes, the IRS treats C corporations as separate business entities. A C corporation can be created when there is an exchange of money or property among prospective shareholders who make up a business. This is done for the capital stock of the business. The advantage of a C corporation is that it typically can claim more tax deductions than the ones available to sole proprietorships or partnerships when calculating their amounts of taxable income. Tax deductions can lead to big savings, helping small business owners hold on to more of the income their companies bring in.

S Corporations: How They are Structured and Taxed

By Greg Lindberg, 1800Accountant.com Writer

Decision-making is a huge part of being an entrepreneur and, eventually, a start-up business owner. One of the decisions you have to make during this often challenging process is to settle on a specific business entity to operate. An S corporation is one option you can go with. 1800Accountant.com, a partner of MyCorporation, recommends understanding the following information about how S corporations are structured and taxed before choosing to set one up.

The term “S corporation” originally took on its name from Subchapter S of Chapter 1 in the federal Internal Revenue Code. In general, an S corporation does not pay federal income taxes at the corporate level. However, this does not mean it is exempt from paying taxes altogether. The difference with this type of business entity is that it elects to have its profits, losses, deductions, credit, and all other activities passed through to the shareholders who are invested in the company. These shareholders must report this financial activity on their personal income tax returns.
