How Acumatica WMS Helps you with Your Income Taxes 

No one looks forward to completing their income tax return. If you are a business owner, you are responsible for your personal tax return, plus ensuring that your corporate tax return is filed by the due date. You also need to ensure that all W-2 forms for employees and 1099 forms for independent contractors contain accurate figures. 

Enter Scanco Warehouse, your cloud-based, hand-held warehousing and inventory management solution. This business platform lets you keep track of important aspects of your business, accurately and conveniently. 

  • Keep Track of Inventory 

One aspect you need to keep track of when calculating your business income tax return is the amount of inventory you have on hand. You can locate by item, conduct physical counts by item, or count by bin. Scanco Warehouse also tracks inventory that has been transferred from one warehouse to another and matches sold items by order. 

  • Monitor Materials Accurately 

Inventory is only one set of numbers which must be monitored to calculate your taxes correctly. You also need to keep a close eye on materials. If the cost of materials is increasing but your productivity is remaining about the same, you may need to negotiate more favorable terms with suppliers or look at working with other suppliers who can give you better rates. 

  • Achieve Accurate Labor Numbers 

The cost of human resources is a significant one, whether you are in the manufacturing or distribution business. You want to ensure that you have enough staff to keep your operation working efficiently without being under or overstaffed at any one time. 

Scanco Warehouse allows you to track labor, so you know exactly how much time was spent completing a job. This feature makes planning for similar jobs in the future easier. The software also allows tracking of a job through various stages of production or work order. Depending on your specific needs, you can set up Acumatica WMS to use time cards so workers can sign in and out from a handheld device when working. 

These records can then be used to complete your corporate income tax form. You don’t have to worry about numbers being put into a spreadsheet (and the possibility of errors). If an employee or an independent contractor has a question or a concern about the number listed on his information slip, the figure can be confirmed quickly, with a minimum of fuss. 

  • Save Time When Preparing Income Tax Return 

We’ve all heard the expression, “Time is money.” Whether you have your corporate income tax return prepared in-house or you send it out to be prepared, it’s still a necessary, time-consuming function. If the company accounting department is working on income tax, then it has less time to focus on other necessary tasks for the company. The more time an outside accounting firm spends working on your corporate return, the more you will spend on fees.
