Don't know which "type of business" to choose
I'm trying to create a business in such a way that the default chart of accounts will be most appropriate for my business, but none of the options seem to match and what's left are so general that I have no idea if the COA will be useful. This is especially difficult because I do not have prior accounting experience and cannot afford to hire an accountant.
My business is a "cottage-food operation." That means that I bake things in my home kitchen and sell them at farmers markets. I have no invoices, no purchase orders, no payroll - just debit-card purchases of ingredients, equipment and supplies and cash deposits after the markets and deposits from Square for credit/debit-card sales.
The closest business type I can find is ""General: I make or sell a PRODUCT" with a sub setting of "Other Product-based business." Given the actual nature of my business, as described above, is there any more appropriate selection for "type of business"?
Does anyone out there have a similar business (or better bookkeeping knowledge) to be able to suggest an appropriate chart of accounts?
