Hi, my name is Kerry, and recently, I helped my mum set up her own business. She had always dreamed of buying things at charity shops and auctions and then selling them. However, with her advancing age and mobility issues, traveling to boot sales or flea markets wasn't an option anymore. Luckily, the internet made it easy for her to set up a shop she can run from her home, and I help her get to the charity shops and auctions to stock her online store. However, I have also had to help her with a lot of accounting things. If you are thinking about starting a business or helping a loved one, you need to check out these accounting ideas and tips.
