Frequently Asked Questions about Bookkeeping and Accounting for Photographers

As a freelance photographer, you should be tracking a wide variety of expenses for tax purposes. These can include:

  • Equipment expenses: Cameras, lenses, tripods, lighting equipment, computer hardware, software, and any other photography-specific equipment.
  • Travel expenses: If you travel for your shoots, you can deduct transportation, meals, and lodging expenses.
  • Home office expenses: If you have a dedicated workspace in your home, you may be able to deduct a portion of your housing expenses, such as rent or mortgage, utilities, and internet service.
  • Marketing and advertising: Expenses related to website maintenance, business cards, portfolio prints, and any costs associated with marketing your photography business.
  • Insurance, licenses, and fees: If you pay for liability insurance, licensing fees, or professional association memberships related to your photography business, these are also deductible.

It's important to keep detailed records of all these expenses as they can significantly lower your taxable income.

Managing income from different sources can be tricky, but with a proper system, you can easily track and account for your earnings. Start by setting up separate accounts for each income source such as print sales, commissioned works, or photography classes. With each income you get, record it in the respective account. This will not only simplify your income tracking, but also make it easy to analyze your revenue streams. For more detailed guidance, consider hiring a professional bookkeeping service like Accracy Accounting to ensure accuracy and compliance.

As a professional photographer, there are many specific deductions and tax benefits available to you. These may include expenses for professional equipment, costs for photo editing software, office or studio rent, insurance, marketing costs, travel expenses, and even photography-oriented education or workshops. However, tax regulations can vary by location and individual circumstances, so it's wise to consult with a professional bookkeeper to make sure you're maximizing your tax advantages. At Accracy, our dedicated bookkeepers can assist with this and make sure your financials are in order.

We understand that when our clients turn their accounting and bookkeeping services over to us, trust is paramount. We have a team of certified professionals, use proven technologies, and hold ourselves accountable every day. Yes, you can trust us with your sensitive data and to deliver accurate, timely accounting services for your business.

Absolutely. Our team members are all certified in the leading accounting systems and can quickly get your files up to date.

Don’t worry, your financial data belongs to you. Our offboarding is pretty straightforward as we transfer account ownership to you. As a bonus, there’s no stopping you from replicating the workflows we’ve created for your in-house process – in fact, we encourage it.

Savings can vary considerably depending on your current solution, but our clients tell us that it is generally between 30% and 50%.

We do not provide year-end tax filing services as we are not a CPA firm. However, if you are looking for a year-end tax accountant, we would gladly refer you to one of our partners. Having a separate bookkeeper and year-end accountant ensures additional oversight on the accuracy of your books. Your year-end tax accountant can help you review your books during tax season.

No, we are not a CPA firm. Accracy is not a public accounting firm and does not provide services that would require a license to practice public accountancy.

No. We do not offer services which fall under the jurisdiction of these organizations. We have partner organizations who can provide those services if needed by clients. A good example of such services are tax advisory or statutory filings. We have a number of non-economic partnerships with CPA firms who can help our clients with these services if needed.

Every account is set up with a Client Success Lead who will be your day-to-day contact. They’ll liaise with the rest of the team members on your account which may include an accounting manager, bookkeeper, payroll specialist, and payables specialist.

Accracy can support a wide range of companies, from small businesses and startups to large public corporations. Our services are tailored to meet the unique accounting and bookkeeping needs of businesses across various industries.
