With 2023 only a few weeks away, we are already well into the year’s last quarter. But are you prepared for the end of the year? And when it comes to preparing your company path for 2023 and beyond, have you done your due diligence?
Let’s look at the essential ways to wrap up your year and begin the new year with a clear plan to advance your business.
easing the way for your company adventure in 2023
The average small business owner has not had an easy couple of years. As we approach 2023, cash flow will have been limited, prices and costs will have been continuously increasing, and the market will be more and more competitive.
What can you do, then, to simplify your life in the upcoming year? And as we conclude this last quarter of 2022, these are the checks you should be performing:
Do you keep current books? – Double-check that you’ve entered all of the costs, receipts, and expenses for this final Q4 period. Additionally, make sure you’ve scanned all the receipts and papers required to complete the books and satisfy your compliance obligations. Your cloud accounting software will make the process of closing up your period-end accounts considerably simpler if you have everything uploaded and matched.
Have you sent out invoices for all the work you did this quarter? – check your most recent sales and projects to ensure that everything that needed to be invoiced out has been charged. Work completed during this time period should be invoiced out during this time as well, ensuring that your cash flow and accounts balance and reconcile properly.
Do you still owe any money to customers or suppliers? – Verify that there are no unpaid debts and that all supplier bills have been paid by checking your accounts payable. Additionally, check your aged debtors report to see if there are any unpaid customer invoices. Set up automated chaser emails for late payments if you haven’t already, so you may begin 2023 with the most effective credit control procedures and accounts receivable performance.
Have you determined your main objectives for 2023? – Now that your bookkeeping is in order, it’s time to anticipate the coming year. What goals do you have for 2023, and how do you intend to accomplish them? Set your objectives for the upcoming year and make sure everyone in the company is aware of them. You can more easily motivate performance when everyone is singing from the same hymnal.
Do you already have a working business plan? – Include your annual objectives in a thorough business strategy. To determine how well the company is operating, establish timetables, agree on budgets, and make sure you are tracking progress in relation to these. You may gain some wonderful insights into your business journey and total return on investment using the newest cloud tools and planning apps (ROI).
