When you own your own business, it’s important to look at expenses as well as income in order to remain profitable.
I looked into various (not all – not even education or supplies and materials!) expenses for artists and thought it might be interesting to share the results. Feel free to add to our completely unscientific list in a comment on the Art Biz Blog.

In today’s economy, small business owners sometimes look to the oldest form of commerce — the exchange of goods and services, or bartering. The Internal Revenue Service wants to remind small business owners that bartering transactions generally have associated tax reporting, accounting and recordkeeping responsibilities.

We've mentioned on past blog postings how individual artists often need to operate as small business entrepreneurs. If you're just getting started with bookkeeping, free and easy-to-use resources are crucial because A) if we wanted to be accounts, we would have been accounts, and B) we're not getting paid much so free is very good.
