There are a lot of considerations when you are running a yoga studio. Running a yoga studio requires wearing a lot of hats. You have to be ready to train spontaneously in case a teacher doesn’t show. You need to be an administrator and design policies for employees and students. You will also need to be creative and come up with enticing offers and packages to draw new students in… plus a financial wizard to deal with revenue, vendor payments, payroll and a host of other things. Whether your yoga studio is newer or established, it is still a lot to deal with and it can often feel overwhelming as you try to balance yoga students and trainers with the needs of your business.
For it to be profitable, you need to keep an eagle eye on how much money is coming in, what your biggest expenses are, and understand the value students place on your services so you can price correctly. Bookkeeping is a necessary part of this because it helps keep your financial position stable. Instead of being surprised and stressed over sudden revenue drops or not quite knowing how best to use profits for growth, bookkeeping is an essential part of the financial health of your business.
Here are some of the key services bookkeeping can offer support in:
- Bank Reconciliations
- Credit Card Reconciliations
- General Ledger Reviews
- Financial Statement Preparation
- Profit and Loss Analysis
- Balance Sheet Analysis
- Year-End 1099’s
- Year-End Close for Your CPA
Each of these is crucial because it enables better control over your business and ensures that your yoga studio has room to grow and expand. Bookkeeping can help you avoid hurtful financial decisions and offers you some extra support in developing your business and maximizing profits so that you can continue to grow your student base.
