Accounting for Amazon
Online Course for Amazon Sellers (and for the Accountants Who Love Them)
This course is for you if you're using Xero or QuickBooks Online to track Amazon sales, either in the US or internationally.
We will discuss the specific challenges Amazon sellers face regarding sales tax and how to quickly and painlessly know if you're profitable using the right tools.
We will also cover all the ins and outs of inventory and cost of goods sold, including how to select the right cloud inventory tool for your business and how to calculate cost of goods sold accurately. We'll wrap it up by introducing a few extra tools to help you automate your accounting process and business requirements that are often overlooked by new sellers.
Note: this course does NOT cover VAT or GST - only US sales tax.
Not just the why and what but also the elusive HOW.
"I'm currently making my way through the course, and I definitely think it's worth every cent and more, especially for me because I'm a really small seller who’s kinda clueless on a lot of things involving eCommerce. I only started selling online about 5 months ago and I'm currently at $XX,000 in revenue with 2 SKUs. And after watching this course, I quickly realized that I haven't been recording A LOT of important data which would have caused a ton of problems, bottlenecks, and disorganization while trying to scale up in the future.
I'm very happy that I found this course now instead of later."

"I just finished watching “Accounting for Amazon”. I am really impressed by the quality and vast amount of knowledge offered. As a CPA serving many Amazon sellers, I learned many new ideas (CoGS in A2X is a real game changer) and got additional clarity on concepts that I deal with day-to-day.
This course is chock-full of useful and practical info and a must watch for every Amazon seller. I’d recommend for every accountant to watch as well!"
