The Final Countdown Is Here! What's Your Business Doing to Bring in the New Year?

By: Brittany Engelmann-- 2016-11-30 7:00 am --

The final countdown is here. In just one more month, we’ll be welcoming in the new year. What does your business have planned? For many small businesses, the month of December is the most hectic time of the year. Not only are retail stores overflowing with holiday shoppers, but they also need to start closing out the books and planning for the year ahead. 

Start Closing the Books

By December, your accountants should already be underway in finalizing the taxes and closing the books. Keep in mind, the amount you pay in taxes directly correlates to the amount of profits your business earns. One insider tip that’s used by many small businesses is to deposit less money into your business account in December, instead carrying it over into January, so you’ll reduce your tax payment for the year. In turn, December is the ideal month to make as many business-related purchases as needed, since these can be deducted from your taxes.

Start Planning for the Year to Come

Now that the year is winding to a close, it’s time to begin preparing for the year ahead. Now is the time to start thinking about how next year will be better than the current one. Contemplate any issues you experienced with your business or inefficiencies that dragged your company down, so you can develop action plans to improve upon your company in the year ahead.

Set Your New Year’s Resolutions

After identifying some of the core shortcomings your business experienced in 2016, you can begin making some business resolutions for the coming year. Was your employee turnover too high? Did your suppliers frequently run out of supplies? Was your marketing strategy costing more than it’s worth? By identifying these core issues, you can strategize ways to improve in these areas in the coming year.

Throw a New Year’s Bash in Honor of Your Employees

Your employees have worked hard for your company, helping to ensure your business is a success. Now is the perfect time to show your employees how much you appreciate them by throwing a New Year’s bash in their honor. A New Year’s party is a great way to get to know your employees on a deeper level, improve employee morale, and create a sense of camaraderie in the workplace.

Get a Fresh Start

The new year is a time for new beginnings. The beginning of 2017 provides the ideal opportunity to renovate your business and make big changes in your processes.
