What records should I keep?
There are a few different types of records that you should keep for your accountant, depending on whether you are running a business or just have personal finances. For a business, you will need to keep track of all income and expenses, as well as any invoices or receipts. For personal finances, you should keep track of your monthly budget, any bills or statements you receive, and your credit score. It’s also helpful to have a record of your assets and liabilities so you can stay aware of your net worth.
How do I find my break-even point?
The break-even point (BEP) is the point at which your business neither makes a profit nor suffers a loss. It’s reached when your total revenue equals your total costs. To find your BEP, you need to know what your fixed and variable costs are. Fixed costs remain the same regardless of how much product or service you sell, while variable costs change with sales volume. Once you know these figures, you can calculate your BEP by dividing your fixed costs by the difference between unit selling price and variable cost per unit.
What are my financing options as a business owner?
Small business owners have a few different financing options to help them grow their businesses. One option is to take out a loan from a bank or another lending institution. Another option is to receive money from investors, either angels or venture capitalists. Small businesses can also seek out government grants or funding, or partner with larger businesses in exchange for a percentage of ownership in the company. Finally, small business owners can use their own personal savings to finance their businesses. Whichever option business owners choose, it’s important to do your research and compare interest rates and other terms before making a decision.
How can I prepare for tax season?
There are a few things you can do to prepare for tax season. First, gather all of your tax documents together. This includes W-2s, 1099s, receipts, and any other documents related to your income or expenses. You may also want to start tracking your expenses throughout the year so that you have a record of them. If you plan on itemizing your deductions, be sure to keep track of all of your medical and dental expenses, charitable donations, and other deductions. Finally, file your taxes as early as possible to avoid last-minute stress.
When should I pay estimated taxes?
You should pay estimated taxes if you expect to owe $1,000 or more in federal taxes for the year. You can either estimate your own tax bill and pay quarterly installments, or have your tax preparer do it for you. If you choose to estimate your own taxes, be sure to stay on top of any changes in your income or expenses that could affect your liability.
