Bookkeeping And Tax Tips For Bloggers/Freelancers

This weeks episode of Digital Nomad Radio is all about bookkeeping and taxes. I agree, it’s the most boring part of having a business. Unfortunately, it’s something we all have to do at some point.

The reason I chose this topic this week is because I spent about 8 hours (at least it felt that long) last night printing and scanning receipts, entering invoices, and catching up on all the books. It took me a lot of researching before I had any idea what I was doing. I have a feeling some of you are in the same boat as I was and are clueless about what to do.

Some of the topics I will cover include:

  • Accounts Receivable - How to keep track of all your income.
  • Accounts Payable – What you should be keeping track of for business expenses.
  • Tax Deductions For Bloggers/Freelancers – I’ll share some of the tax deductions that you might be able to take if you are a blogger or freelancer.
  • Invoicing Software - I’ll share a really useful tool I use for invoicing.

That pretty much wraps it up for this weeks episode. Click the continue reading link below (or the post title above) to listen to this weeks show.
