Accounting ArticleBecause business conditions constantly change it is imperative that you know exactly what you are spending your money on. If you are struggling, now is the time to take a long hard look at how you go about your business. A business is a constantly flowing entity that has to change as time goes on. Regardless of whether you are seeing a drop in profits or not, constantly re-evaluating your outgoings is always a good idea in order to remain competitive and achieve your targets.

First of all, look at your regular monthly bills that you have to pay. Can you get any services at a better rate than you do at the moment? Consider whether your current suppliers are providing the best service available to you and whether or not you actually need them. As businesses grow, they can sometimes outgrow certain routines or services, so you could be spending money needlessly.

Consider how you process your payments as well. If you are trying to hold money in your account for longer by delaying payments, this could actually be harming your bottom line. See if you can get a discount for settling your accounts ahead of time. This alone can save a significant amount of cash.

Are you doing any outsourcing at present? Outsourcing certain jobs can prove to be very efficient. Are you outsourcing the right jobs, or could some of them be done more easily and cheaply in house? Some companies don't realize that small amounts of bookkeeping and admin jobs could actually be taken on by certain members of staff.

How often do you check the marketing budgets? A fine balance is required, since cutting back too far on advertising will result in a loss of custom as well. But, you should regularly go through your various advertising methods to see how well they are performing, and make sure you monitor these expenses very closely.

Think about how you are going about your business and working with clients. Some people still like to go out and meet with clients on a face to face basis, but are this really always necessary?

Nearly all businesses have email and internet access and there are plenty of options available such as phone and even the post.

One of the largest (and frankly unnecessary) expenses is travel. Instead of booking that business trip next month, why not consider web conferencing instead? As long as you are prepared to spend a bit of time setting a decent service then this can prove to be a major saving for your business.

There is no reason why you cannot arrange a meeting online instead of spending the money required to travel to meeting in person. Not only will you save money on travel, you'll save valuable time as well, because you won't need to leave your desk. You will also likely reduce your carbon output, which may count towards tax savings, which is now becoming more prominent in business.

So make sure you look at every possibility and do it on a regular basis. That way you will find that your profits are as healthy as they can possibly be.
