Many businesses rely upon third-party point-of-sale, e-commerce, e-gift or booking applications to sell their products and services. Various retailers and service providers use systems such as Square, Stripe, Shopify, Clover, Amazon, and Toast. Some property owners use AirBnb or VRBO to rent out their properties. Regardless of what third-party application you use, your accountant can create your sales, tax and merchant processing fee entries into your QuickBooks Online account with the data from these third-party applications. Whether you are a service provider, wholesaler or retailer, we can help you record revenues. We are experienced with customizing accounting entries into QuickBooks Online for any kind of retail, contracting, or service business.

Your Accountant will Separate Taxable & Non-Taxable Income

Your monthly POS reports can be uploaded into a folder within your secure document upload portal or emailed directly to your accountant. This data must include gross sale and tax amounts for each item sold. The data must also include the city and state information to include in your sales tax liability reports. The data should additionally include any returns, credits, discounts given, deposits received, and refunds issued to your customers. Also note that Non-taxable Sales should be separate from Taxable Sales. Be sure to include any per transaction processing fees deducted by the third-party application for payment processing. It is also necessary for you to identify the individual product or service items sold with each transaction.

Your Accountant will Create Custom POS Sales and Tax Reports

With this service, we request that you add your accountant as a user in your POS system so they can download the monthly reports required to create journal entries to record your sales, returns, discounts, and related expenses and sales tax where applicable. Your accountant will enter your sales and sales tax liability data into QuickBooks Online so that it shows up on your monthly Profit and Loss and Balance Sheet reports.
