Core features of Brightpearl’s retail accounting


Accurate accounting for inventory

Understand the true value of your inventory and your profit margins on goods sold over time, with the FIFO (First-in, First-out) accounting model. Or, decide to account for your COGS at the point of shipment or invoice.


Integrated landed costs

Get a true picture of the total cost of your inventory and profitability across all channels by including landed costs.


Real-time P&L and balance sheet

Whether invoicing an order, taking payment, processing a shipment or receiving goods-in, accounting entries will be created automatically and in real-time.


Multi-currency for international expansion

Buy from overseas suppliers, sell to customers around the world, or bank in any foreign currency, all within one system. Manage your supplier and customer accounts, along with their orders, invoices, payments, and debts in their local currency to maintain financial continuity.


Complete audit trail

Easily navigate between contacts, invoices, payments, and their underpinning journals with each transaction linked to its order or credit in one single system, allowing you to spend less time validating and reconciling data when auditing.


Amazon FBA settlement report mapping

Import Amazon fees and other adjustments to corresponding transactions. Specify the account code for order-related fees and set the default code for other fees and transactions to ensure journal entries are created and mapped accurately.


Reconcile bank accounts

With bank reconciliation functionality and bank activity reporting, stay reassured that every deposit, withdrawal, bank payment, and transfer is accounted for correctly.


Real-time accounts payable and receivable reports

Track accounts payable and receivable in real-time and across multiple currencies. Report on customer/vendor activity, their full financial history, or just outstanding or overdue invoices. Send statements, allocate payments, and monitor credit limits and payment terms, all in one integrated system.


Manage business expenses and overheads

Keep track of general expenses and overheads in order to accurately report on net profit via supplier bills, bank payments, employee expense claims, and journal entries.


VAT returns and sales tax reporting

Depending on your tax scheme, our integrated accounting software either generates VAT returns and EC sales lists, or provides data to report on sales tax.


Pre-built accounting integrations

Our purpose-built integrations with major accounting systems provide you with the freedom to choose the best option for your business. Benefit from real-time sales performance reporting in Brightpearl even when you choose to use a third party accounting software.
