Attorney in Raleigh NC Talks Small Business Updates
- Take a closer look at your taxes.
You are probably already in tax mode when the new year rolls around because you are preparing for the April deadline. When you do your taxes, whether on your own or with professional help, look closely for any tax breaks you may be missing so that you can save money next year. For instance, are there things you use for work that you are not writing off such as client lunch expenses or mileage for work-related trips? Have there been any changes in state or federal law that apply to small businesses or industries such as yours? Need help with this one? Contact our attorney in Raleigh NC.
- Look at your budget.
While you are looking at numbers, take the time to review your budget and expenses. You may be able to cut costs in the new year in ways that will not affect your business, the quality of your service or product, or the work environment for your employees.
For instance, do your employees use the bottled water service you pay to have delivered to the office? If not, stop the service. It will be a small savings that adds up at the end of the year. The money could even be used toward something your employees find more valuable, such as monthly birthday celebrations.
Are you paying insurance on a company car that no one uses? Get rid of it and let employees use their own car and expense the mileage, or use a ride service such as Uber.
