Frequently Asked Questions about Bookkeeping and Accounting for Private Investigators

Accracy Accounting can significantly help private investigators in managing tax-related issues. Our dedicated team of skilled and experienced bookkeepers ensures proper organisation and classification of all your expenses and revenue. With accurate financial records, tax calculation becomes easier and more precise.

Moreover, we also provide tax filing services, which include identifying and applying relevant deductions to minimise your tax liability. This not only keeps your business compliant but also saves you money. With Accracy Accounting handling your tax-related issues, you can focus your energy and time on your primary services as a private investigator.

As a private investigator, there are several expenses you can deduct from your taxes. These can range from operational to administrative costs. Some examples include:

  • Vehicle expenses used for investigative work
  • Travel expenses, meals, and entertainment related to your business
  • Office expenses such as rent, utilities, insurance, and maintenance
  • Tools and equipment necessary for your work such as cameras, recorders, computers, and software
  • Training and education expenses that maintain or improve your skills

To properly document these expenses, it is important to keep detailed records. Receipts, invoices, vehicle mileage logs, and other proofs of purchase should be kept and organized. It could be beneficial to engage a bookkeeper or use an expense tracking software to simplify the documentation process.

Remember, every individual and business situation is unique. We recommend consulting with a professional tax consultant or CPA to get advice tailored to your specific circumstances.

For a private investigation business, it's important to follow generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) to manage and effectively monitor your income. Here are some key practices:

  • Accurate Record Keeping: Keep track of all business-related expenses and income accurately. This includes maintaining all receipts, invoices, and bank statements so you can reconcile your accounts regularly.
  • Separate Personal and Business Finances: Always keep your personal and business bank accounts separate. It makes tracking business income and expenses easier, and prevents any legal issues down the line.
  • Quarterly Tax Estimations: As a private investigator, you are considered self-employed. Therefore, you should pay estimated tax quarterly to avoid large year-end tax bills.
  • Use Accounting Software: Consider using accounting software tailored for small businesses. It can help simplify your bookkeeping and provide a clear picture of your finances at any time.
  • Retain a Professional: While managing your business, you may not have time to handle all your accounting needs. Hiring a professional bookkeeper can help ensure your books are in order and free up more time for you to focus on operations.

Following these practices can help ensure your private investigation business income is accurately managed and monitored. Remember, Accracy Accounting is here to help with all your bookkeeping needs!

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.
