We have just wrapped up another year, and what a year it has been! If your business has made it through, it is without doubt cause for celebration. But before you start celebrating, there are several important things you need to do to ensure you are ready to take on another year. In this article, we share with you some helpful New Year preparation tips your business can benefit from.
Review Your Records
Review and evaluate any quantifiable results that can give you insights into how your business has been doing. Have you hit or exceeded your KPIs? How are profit margins, and how much revenue is your business bringing in? After you have established the above figures, turn them into actionable insights your business can benefit from. With this data on hand, you can avoid making the same mistakes and discover new strategies to grow your business in the New Year.
Review Your Customers and Employees
When reviewing profit margins and revenues, take the time to accurately assess each client that has purchased from your business over the years. Do not simply focus on those who made big purchases – which clients are loyal, repeat customers? Who has been a pleasure to work with, and who has given you no end of trouble? Do the same with your employees, then make the necessary changes to your target market and team of staff.
Make Sure You Comply with New Business Laws
All changes to business law become effective on the first day of the New Year. It may seem like some time ahead, but you would do well to ensure your business is compliant well ahead of time. It’s never too early to reach out to your attorney so they can assist you in making sure everything is good to go by the time New Year rolls around.
Complete Your Tax Paperwork
Although the last day for mailing out tax paperwork is the 31st of January, it never hurts to start early. You will need to provide a tax record for every employee and contractor you have hired – depending on the size of your business, that can mean quite a bit of work. If you have not already done so, contact your accountant or bookkeeper to get started on your tax accounts as soon as possible!
