Planning Your Company’s New Year’s Tax Resolutions

Posted 12 Nov 15

As the year is coming to an end and another one is about to start, it might be a great opportunity to look back at the old habits and develop new ones which will help your business bloom.

When making a list of New Year’s resolutions not many of us think of their taxes in the first place. However, we strongly encourage that you give your bookkeeping the same attention you give your holiday plans. Learning how to handle exhaustive amounts of paperwork can help you plan your finances better.

The first thing you should do in order to create a realistic plan for the next year is to look back over the last year. Think about the tools you’ve used to process your bookkeeping and if they’ve served you well. What challenges did you encounter and how did you manage to handle them?

What could have you done better when preparing your company for the end of its financial year?

Was it easy to prepare your company for end of year tax return or did you struggle to file documents required or missed the deadline set by HMRC? How did you feel about the expenses you made? Were you able to produce a sufficient amount of product you sell or could you not afford to invest in the quality materials required? Do you think you have overpaid your tax? Are there any expenses you think you could have claimed as a limited company?

After their first year, a lot of company owners decide to hire a professional accountant to take care of their paperwork. Struggling with complex tax laws can slow you down, especially when you are trying to focus on marketing your products and services, managing your staff and finding new markets to target.

Thinking about the next year, what things require changes? Has your business grown and requires more accounting and management? Has the nature of your business changed? Maybe some strategies you’ve been using to manage your company in the past do not apply to plans you wish to make for the future? You might have experience the influence some changes outside of your control had on your company? Is there anything you can do to use them to your benefit?

When you’ve managed to answer all the above questions, you are ready to create a list of tax resolutions which will make your company more organised and in consequence, more successful.
