It's not uncommon for us to interact with seasonal businesses since we tend to spend a lot of time involved with the outdoor community. I'm not saying seasonal bookkeeping only occurs with outdoor enthusiasts that happen to own a business, but a majority of the owners we work with are. Your business could be a winter photographer, a summer rafting company, landscaper, or basically anything that operates based on certain weather conditions. There are many benefits of owning a seasonal company, but there are also a few downsides. One downside may be trying to cram a full year of revenue generating work into 6 months or less. When this happens it's quite common to ignore your bookkeeping and next thing you know your bookkeeping has fallen behind.
