We occasionally buy product with the sister company credit

We occasionally buy product with the sister company credit card and then pay them back. The issue I have, is I need to post in the inventory which then creates an invoice to pay. So will it mess up the accounting to delete the invoice since it's already paid with a credit card and I need to pay our sister company for our portion of the credit card.

I drive and want to deduct deadhead miles - if audited, do I

I drive for Uber and want to deduct deadhead miles - if audited, do I need a record of each individual trip (for example, driving around with my Uber app online on the way to a passenger or to find a better location), or is keeping a summary for each day of the number of miles I drove deadhead while working for Uber sufficient in case I get audited? I can easily track the trips, since Uber provides a summary for each one with starting location, ending, etc. I don't mind copying those into a log book - the real question is about deadhead miles.

A prospect asked me invoice to submit to investors who

a prospect asked me for an invoice to submit to investors who were interested in financing their project. But the prospect needed approval on the cost of working with me as the designer, so i sent out an invoice to them like they asked so they can get it approved. my question is this...i was told from a friend that this person could be a fraud and that i shouldve sent them an estimate invoice instead of a regular invoice...because they can go to the tax man and say that i paid them so they can get some type of return on an amount that included in the invoice. is this true? am i at risk?

We are preparing audit of our books, to include fixed

We are preparing for an audit of our books, to include fixed assets. The audit will be looking at financials from three years back to current. The problem we are encountering is with fixed asset purchase invoices. There are some fixed assets where the purchase invoice cannot be located and the vendor is unable to supply a copy. How do we explain, or "talk off", this situation to the auditors? We have much better processes in place today to track fixed assets. Unfortunately, two and three years ago was a different story.

I am working abroad in Canada (California Resident Telecommuting).I have an opportunity to work for a US company remotely as a contractor while I stay in Canada to receive Permanent Residency.

I have an eBay business. I buy shoes and then sell them. Not

I have an eBay business. I buy shoes and then sell them. Not to complicated lets say I Gross around 4K a year. and me being the honest guy I report it on my taxes using a schedule C. So every year I am asked on my tax software "Do you have inventory to report?" I say yes.i use the cost method. Now this is where the question comes in. "reporting the value of your inventory." this part to me is very vague. Sometimes i buy a pallet of stuff for a flat amount, and can not begin to figure out what cost what. Not to mention I didn't go and do inventory on new years eve. Sometime I get stuff for free, and sometimes I just sell stuff that used to be mine. like i said very vague. Question is what do I put in this box? I can make a educated guess of what i should have for inventory during that time but not sure how this even matters. The Second question is Cost of Purchases. I assume this is where i just add up my invoices for the year and put it here(?)
