This is my first year in the lawn buisness. I do have an LLC company with no insurace. Note I am only part time. I have 8 accounts that I make a good profit on but all of my clients are residential and they pay me cash. I also cut two peoples lawns ( my moms and my neighbos) and dont charge them at all. I do plan on going to my CPA, but here is my problems. I dont have any invoices because they pay me cash, how much should I show, and can I claim my mom and my neighbors cuts as donations. I also would like to know how much of a lost I could have in my first year of buisness. Before I started my buisness I was really orginized and said I was going to invoice everything, but once I got started my clients would just come out with the cash and give it to me and they all said that they didnt need an invoice. I did spent about 10,000 dollars to get off and started and this year I made my money back.
