Accounting sotware for tax + how to get started
13 Oct 2005
I am new to selling on eBay in any volume and business. I want to start preparing records for tax but its so complicated, the paypal comission on some but not all, listing fees, failures and commissions. It seems a nightmare but people do it. Is there a software to help and how do I start with all this anyway? Please help!!!!

Hi Duncan,

That's a tough area and I would recommend talking to an accountant if you are serious about eBay selling.

There is some software around that can help get your eBay and PayPal data into a format you can work with for tax purposes - usually a CSV (comma-separated value) file that can be loaded into Excel or accounting programs like Quickbooks.

Take a look at the accounting category, and this related discussion .
