CraigBusiness Process


If our recent blog got you thinking, then we’ve got you covered.

The New Year may be just around the corner but that doesn’t mean you can’t make some business resolutions now. To get you inspired, check out our top 3 ways to boost productivity and profits for a successful 2018.

  1. Get Your Business In Shape

Money matters, so it pays to make sure your figures add up. While the start of the New Year may not be the financial year-end for your business, taking the time to review the past year and set new goals will keep you (or get you back) on track.

542 Tip: Always keep track of money coming in (payments from your customers) and money going out (your costs).

  1. Set up Your Calendar

We know it’s not easy managing all the due dates and compliance obligations so you need to set up your calendar with appropriate alerts and reminders. We’ve done the hard work here.

542 Tip: Talk to your accountant to make sure you’re up-to-date, and understand how any changes may affect your business.

  1. Consolidate Everything With Xero

Connect your business to the cloud and simply your bookkeeping. The list of features Xero offers is extensive but includes invoicing, bank reconciliation, expense claims, quotes and reporting. As Xero Platinum Partners – the highest level available in Xero’s Partnership program – we’re in the perfect position to help get your business on the cloud. Why we love Xero.

542 Tip: With the right financial tools, you’ll be aware of your financial well-being. This will help you make the right decisions – not just daily ones, but long-term strategic ones too.

If you only make one business-related New Year’s resolution this year, make one that counts. Resolve to manage your business obligations carefully.
