When you start a business, the first thing you have to learn is how to budget. Now, you might already think that you know how to “budget” – after all, you’ve got your home finances organised, you know how much food, bills and other essentials cost every month. But business budgeting is a very different beast. From tax considerations (and what can be reclaimed from said tax) through to payroll costs and product management, a business’ budget can have enough things to consider that you’ll get a headache just looking at the list, let alone trying to calculate it. So how do you make sure you manage it correctly?
Well, as you might have guessed from the fact that this is a blog from a group of accountants, the answer is; with your accountant! Now, an accountant can’t necessarily do your businesses budget for you. They can certainly help with financial management, but you need to provide important input and information on the various options, and your priorities for the business. But having an accountant at your side who can tell you what’s feasible to budget for each of the myriad options you might have to consider, with decisions based on your past performance and records, can be an invaluable resource.
