Make Taxes Less Taxing With Robust Reporting

It’s never been easier to share reports with your accountant. You can grant them accountant-level access to your account (available on Plus plans or higher) or download reports to send them directly instead.

Profit and Loss Report

Your Profit and Loss (P&L) is a snapshot of your business activity over the past year and is vital for filing your taxes. This report shows your net profit by subtracting your total expenses from your total income over a specific period of time. It also can be referred to as “Income Statement” or “Earnings Statement.”

Expense Report

Tracking expenses is vital, not only for tax time but to instantly see the health of your business. The Expense report breaks down all of your expenses into detail, including any applicable taxes. Want to populate this report fast? Connect your bank account to import expenses automatically.

Accounts Aging Report

Improve the number of days it takes for an invoice to get paid and improve your cash flow at the same time. The Accounts Aging report will show you which clients have outstanding and overdue invoices – all in one place for you to review. Want to get paid even faster? You can set up Online Payments on your invoices, send automatic payment reminders, and save your client’s credit card information for recurring billing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does FreshBooks do online tax preparation?

FreshBooks does not offer done-for-you tax preparation, but instead, we are an accounting software that allows you to track your expenses, income, and more while inviting your accountant to access these reports on FreshBooks.

If you are looking for tax preparation and submission software, we do suggest working with our partner, BenchTax. It’ll take care of your taxes from start to finish. Available to existing Bench bookkeeping clients, BenchTax is a new way of filing taxes that’s streamlined, affordable, and fast. Their tax pros will take your Bench books and any additional financial documents, make sense of them, prepare them, and e-file them using TaxFyle, an on-demand tax filing service.

BenchTax is only available to U.S. Bench clients already working with a Bench Bookkeeper.

What are some common business deductions I can make?

As a business owner, you’re able to deduct certain business expenses from your federal income taxes. This is valuable because business deductions decrease your taxable income, which will reduce your tax liability. Don’t forget to take all of your allowable deductions! Your accountant knows your business and can offer tax advice on which deductions you should be able to take.

Is there anything I can do to reduce my tax bill and improve my tax return?

While the 2023 tax preparation process will likely be over by the time you meet with your tax pro, you may still be able to reduce your tax bill. Talk to your accountant about what other options are available to you. One of the most common ways to reduce your tax liability after the tax year is over is to contribute money to an individual retirement account (IRA) or Simplified Employee Pension (SEP) IRA.

Talk to your accountant to see if this is a strategy you can use and how much you can contribute to your retirement account. There are contribution limits based on your business income and age, but it’s a great way to improve your tax return.

What changes should I think about making this upcoming year as I do my tax preparation?

Working with an accountant isn’t just about filing federal, state, and local taxes. A good accountant can offer tax advice and help you strategically plan for a healthy business in the years to come. Ask your accountant if they offer advisory financial services to help you assess and grow your business.

You may specifically want to ask them about:

Cash flow analysis to help find opportunity areas

If you’ve ever obsessively stared at your bank account balance for minutes on end, you know that cash flow can be one of the most difficult aspects of running a small business. Your accountant can help you analyze your cash flow issues, answer questions, and share tax advice and improvements so you peel your eyes away from those numbers and focus on growing your business!

Financial forecasts and a business budget

Do you know where your business is headed? Your accountant should be able to help you put together financial forecasts for the upcoming year. You may also want to ask them to help you create a budget so you can make informed decisions about where and how to spend your money and invest in your business going forward.

Do you have any advice on estimated tax payments?

Are you sending enough money to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) each quarter for your taxes? Send them too much, and your tax refund money essentially becomes an interest-free loan for the government that year. Send them too little, and you could owe money, plus run the risk of facing an underpayment penalty. Your tax preparer can look at your current and projected taxable income to ensure that you’re sending the IRS the right amount per quarter this year.
