Optimizing Your Chart of Accounts for a Smooth Tax Season

When it comes to tax season, a clear and organized chart of accounts can make your accountant very happy. While no one-size-fits-all template exists for a chart of accounts, many categories are standard. It’s important to remember that when setting up your chart of accounts in QBO, you will be offered a generic list of categories that you can use as a guideline. You will also want to create subcategories for these expenses.

The Importance of Detailed Subcategories

By creating specific subcategories, you can hand over your books at the end of the year with a clear picture of where the money was spent. In addition, this will enable your accountant to ensure they are filing your taxes accurately, as broad categories like Automotive can relate to various expenses such as gas, insurance, repairs & maintenance, registration, and more.
