Importance of Bookkeeping in Retail
Keeping Accurate Books is a Challenge for Retail Businesses

We’ve seen retail businesses facing the following challenges when performing bookkeeping in-house:

Maintaining Thousands of Transactions

Retail businesses typically process a high volume of transactions daily, which can quickly add up to thousands of transactions over a month or year. Each transaction must be accurately recorded in the business's accounting system, which can be a time-consuming and tedious process. Additionally, mistakes in recording transactions can lead to errors in financial statements and tax filings.

Sales Tax Liability

Sales tax regulations are often complex and vary by state and local jurisdiction. This makes it difficult for retailers to accurately calculate the amount of sales tax owed on each transaction. Also, keeping track of the various exemptions and discounts that may apply to certain transactions and changing federal and state tax rates are a challenge too.

Transaction Fees

Transaction fees may be deducted from the total amount of the transaction, which can make it difficult to reconcile payments and determine the actual revenue received from each transaction. This can be a particular challenge for retailers that offer refunds or returns, as the amount refunded may not match the original transaction amount due to the deduction of transaction fees.

Inventory Management

Different retailers use different costing techniques, such as retail, FIFO, or LIFO, which can affect the value of inventory on hand and the COGS for each item sold. Therefore, accurately calculating and recording this cost and keeping track of each item in stock, including the number of items on hand, on order, and sold, can be a challenge.


Uncertainties like seasonal fluctuations in sales volume make forecasting revenue and expenses difficult for retail businesses. We've seen that retailers find it challenging to create periodic financial analysis reports. At the same time, payment processing can also be complicated due to the acceptance of multiple payment methods, each with its own fees and settlement times.

Glenda Dowie

APT Systems Inc (APTY)

I want to say that it is my pleasure to work with the guys at IBN since they first accepted us as a client in July of 2021. I provided them with the bookkeeping challenge of working on three companies simultaneously in order to complete new filing requirements by the OTC markets with a 3-month deadline. The first bookkeeping task was for recording multiple years of entries for AUREX Trading and Recovery Inc, which is a precious metal recovery operation from electronic scrap but also included many other sources for gold and silver refining with unique ledger challenges. The second is a small games operation company called Snapt Games. These financials then rolled up to form part of the records for the main company, APT Systems Inc. APT is a fintech company that includes a now smaller division for gold management, platform development, a Spera stablecoin and all of the usual items required for reporting companies. The IBN team members have always been very professional and incredibly patient under stressful times and worked well with me, our CFO and our internal review team. I am very happy to recommend their bookkeeping services which are performed online using QuickBooks and I am grateful to have found them. Thank you for your great service!
