LLC Accounting

Accounting and Your LLC

One benefit an LLC has over other business entities including corporations is that it is not bound to the “accrual” accounting method. Rather, it can use the “cash method,” meaning that your income is not earned until you actually receive it.

Can I Start Making Claims for Business Expenses?

Regardless if you’re a sole proprietor, LLC or corporation owner, you can claim business expenses. For instance, if you purchased a new $1,500 computer through your LLC that is needed to perform functions for the business, it can be claimed as a business expense, which will deduct that expense from your company’s gross income. This is a practice that should be done with extreme caution, as it poses a risk of being audited by the IRS.
