Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) has transformed the outlook for businesses throughout the UK since its inception in 2006. A ground-breaking programme, Amazon FBA has enabled thousands of small and medium-sized enterprises to market their products both within the UK and overseas, using Amazon’s huge reach to access customers beyond their local marketplace.
With no need to stock, pick, pack, and ship orders – work that is carried out by Amazon staff in one of their warehouses – it is little surprise that Fulfilment by Amazon has become a vital strategic sales tool for businesses across the country.
Tracking your profit and loss is central to any business’s success, but the Amazon FBA business model differs considerably, posing significant challenges for sellers and their accountants. Accurate bookkeeping is essential to grow your business, maximise profits, manage your cash flow and reduce your expenses, but many small business owners have an undeveloped understanding of the complexities of accounting when they launch their enterprise. Equally, accountants may have a general knowledge of small businesses, but lack the knowledge or experience of Amazon’s model.
Choosing the best accounting software for Amazon sellers can be tricky, so consider these options to revitalise your business’s books, helping you to keep your accounts organised and securely backed up in the Cloud.
