Bookkeeping for Insurance Agents
Protecting your Assets
Keeping your finances accurate and organized is one of the most important responsibilities for insurance agents. You need to track your revenue, manage your expenses, and prepare for your tax filing for your business to achieve success.
Expenses consist of any money spent or costs incurred through a business’s revenue generating efforts. Some examples of common expenses include advertising expenses, administrative fees, business travel, and insurance.
However, some expenses have special rules or circumstances, making them more difficult to track, such as client gifts, meals, and entertainment expenses. Properly categorizing these expenses can be difficult for your bookkeeper so be sure to keep receipts and note what was purchased and who it was for.
Home office expenses - If you run your business from home, you can possibly deduct certain costs from your taxes. If you qualify, you must have the necessary documents to support your claim, like utility bills or paid invoices for repairs.
Mileage deduction - The costs you incur from driving for business purposes is most often tax deductible. You can calculate your deduction by keeping track of all your vehicle expenses throughout the year and figuring out what percentage is attributable to business travel.
Develop a system:
Start your agency on the right foot by developing a system to track cash flow - all of the money coming in and going out. Tracking income and expenses in an efficient and accurate manner is the cornerstone of bookkeeping and accounting.
Stick to a budget:
If you don't have a monthly budget for your insurance agency already, establish one and stick to it. A typical budget includes monthly expenses for different aspects of your business such as payroll, marketing, utilities, rent, and other categories.
Record deductions as they occur:
Stay proactive throughout the year by recording and keeping receipts for any expenditures that are tax deductible.
Partner with an accountant:
Hiring an accountant helps you delegate your bookkeeping, accounting, and tax preparation to professionals.
