In addition to all the other things you need to do this during this busy holiday week there are two important points you need to accomplish for your business. If you haven’t already done so, you need to contact your accountant or CPA and discuss your end of year tax strategy. What can you do before the end of the year to legally and ethically minimize your taxes? It doesn’t do any good if your taxes are paid on a calendar year to discuss in January as it will be too late. And second, you need to gather all of your employees together today and remind them that although you too are in the holiday spirit there is still a business to run, customers to serve and business to do. Everyone should enjoy the spirit of Christmas and New Year but there is still a payroll to meet and bills to pay. Though there are not many days remaining to the year, I am sure you want the business to have the best financial numbers as possible to end the year with. Especially this year with the recession and the changes in customer spending.
Merry Christmas. Happy Holidays. Let’s all hope and pray that 2010 is better than 2009 for business.
