5 Ways To Reduce Your Business Overhead

If you own a business, then you know that generating profits often requires limiting the amount of overhead you spend. Every business spends money on overhead because it's necessary in order to function. However, finding ways to reduce the amount will save you thousands of dollars every year and allow your business to grow without drowning in debt. New technology, software and other means can allow you to reduce your overall expenditures without sacrificing quality or quantity. How do you implement changes to ensure that your business runs smoothly and cost-efficiently? The following offers five ways to reduce your business overhead.

1. Go mobile.

Most people have smartphones these days, and with the increasing use of smartphones versus traditional computers, it's important for your business to have a mobile site. How will this reduce your overhead? Having a mobile site will drive traffic, which will pay for the small investment into making your company tech-savvy. Not only will it increase traffic, but it will allow you to distribute advertisements for much less cost. You can send texts, email updates and more instead of using traditional mailers and physical media.

2. Utilize virtual assistants.

One of the best ways to reduce overhead is to reduce the amount of people on staff, especially administrative assistants. Instead of hiring people to sit in an office, hire people around the world through certified, legitimate companies offering virtual assistants. VAs have the skills and training of in-person assistants at a fraction of the cost. You'll be able to get the same or more amount of work done without needing to pay for office upkeep. Many virtual office services can provide you with virtual assistants, executive suites for meetings, a physical address for your business mail, and a wealth of other services.

3. Invest in project management software.

At first, the cost of project management software might deter you from investing in it. Most programs cost hundreds of dollars to set up. However, once you've paid for the initial cost of the software, you never have to pay again, unless you subscribe to an online service which has low monthly fees. Project management software will keep you and your employees on task, no matter what you're working on or who's involved. You can create projects, keep track of expenditures and monitor everyone's progress within the same system, which saves you time and overhead in the long run.

4. Think small.

"Think small" might sound wrong, but in reality, thinking small means thinking in terms of the space you really need versus the space you think you need. If you hire virtual assistants to get admin work done, then you don't need a lot of office space. Take a good look at the work you're doing and decide just how much room you really need. With virtual programs helping you get everything done and the Internet at your fingertips, there's really no need for large office spaces. Reducing your physical space will save you thousands per year.

5. Take advantage of social media.

Marketing on social media offers many benefits, from increasing your business traffic to limiting the amount you spend on advertising costs. One of the biggest sources of overhead comes from marketing. With social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, you can market to millions of people worldwide for practically nothing compared to traditional means.


Bent on Reaching Her Goals

>> Friday, May 17, 2013

Since my online work for now is manageable I can schedule writing posts at night because I find the weather conducive to working. I can think straight and produce creative ideas when it’s colder and besides it’s too hot for my lappy to work for several hours on hot temperature. Because of this I can work on my household during the day and today we had some general cleaning of all our cabinets and book shelves. It was worth my time because we were able to prepare the kids’ school things for the opening of classes. I gave my girls extra drawers for their accessories and girly stuff. 

When we finished our inventory and cleaning we spent the rest of the afternoon arranging the musical instruments. We checked our keyboards, guitar, flute and lyre. The kids love it when they devote their time on learning their instruments particularly the keyboard and guitar. Lately the head of the music ministry in the church urged them more to study and practice more so they can assume the responsibility of playing the keyboard or piano because there’s no one playing that particular instrument. 

 I’m glad Gen got the hang of it and can play several pieces now but when she’s at home she beg me to let her play the guitar first because it’s her fave musical instrument. She’s very interested with the guitar and continuously searching for better brands that she’ll going to buy when she has saved enough money. She told me about the pedal steel guitar at guitar center she saw online and asked me if she would be able to buy one. As young as she is she’s very determined on reaching her goals whether it’s school awards, music things or any other dream of hers.


Better Compensation for Hard Work

>> Wednesday, May 15, 2013

Seeing those laborers working in residential projects of my brother gave me some thoughts on how they must be so tired after a day’s work. It’s one of the hardest tasks I know because they handle big and heavy equipment and they stay in the sun longer when they’re just starting to build the house. When you see them taking their lunch you can imagine how heavy their works are because their hunger is insatiable and they opt to sleep during their breaks. 

It’s a bit harder than farmers whom I see planting at daylight with motors and some with ulv fogger with pesticides to prevent pests from ruining their crops. Such hard labors should be commensurate with decent earnings just like in other countries where blue collared jobs have high salaries. I wish that the new set of law makers will be able to make their life better by studying carefully what should be done to augment their earnings. Actually not only them but a couple of other workers who give their best shots in their work but only receive lesser compensation.


Mixed Emotions on Last Day of Work

>> Tuesday, May 7, 2013

I had mixed emotions on my last days in my office work feeling relieved and happy but at the same time sad that I will not be seeing my office friends anymore. At the last day someone asked me if I’m really decided on my resignation and that I can always cancel my resignation. Of course it’s what I want because if I continue working in the real office I wouldn’t be able to concentrate on my blogs which is my ideal channel of working because I can do it in the comforts of my home. Reading their messages on the phone, email and FB made me realized that somehow we will really miss each other. Sentiments don’t help and before the tears came to my eyes I was riding the fx back home.


Work Responsibilities and Tasks

It’s a common task for me to arrange everything in the office because I was assigned in the administration and human resources. My job actually involves everything that no one is assigned to. Anyway it’s not that tasking because the volume is not that big but the responsibilities are very broad. I handle shipment, some legalizations like licenses and registration, accreditation and renewals, personnel or human resources, purchasing, coordination with suppliers and some other things that involve administration. 

When we have trade fair and some other occasions I must see through giveaways and gifts to clients and partners. I should handle it with care as gifts should be chosen with particular attention to requirements and cost. I ask and entertain suggestions from others which are sometimes pens, planners or personal items. Some would even suggest the best cigars but it’s not for general gifts because not all people smoke and some who does prefer not to be given gifts like that as they want inexpensive gift only to follow some guidelines in receiving gifts. There are rules mostly in big and known companies that no one is allowed to receive gifts with high cost or in the form of cash.


Donating to Charities: How it Affects Your Tax Rates

>> Friday, May 3, 2013

Paying taxes can really be a daunting task especially those who are living just above poverty line have no kids and do not own a house. Their bracket doesn’t qualify them as below poverty line so they have higher taxes. They do not have children or any property they can have deductibles. Some have taken to donating to charity instead so they can choose where their money goes.

Charities are able to claim gift aid on donations. They can claim back the basic rate of tax that has been paid on the amount of the donation. This is 20%. Higher rate taxpayers, though, pay 40% tax on earnings above the 40% threshold. With 20% going to a charity in gift aid these taxpayers can reclaim another 20% back, meaning they effectively pay less tax. They are able to give to a charity of their choice rather than pay it to the government in the form of taxation. 

Cash Gifts are Deductibles

To use such deductibles, you need to provide a written response from a genuine non-profit body, not just cancelled checks or credit card receipts. The IRS reserves the right to negate any charitable deduction not properly supported by the right documents. The acknowledgement should also state if you were giving any goods or offered any services, the value of which should be deducted from your donation. What's left is what you may deduct on your tax return.

Non-cash Contributions are Deductible

The policy is based on the fair market estimate. If the total value of the non-cash donations surpasses $500, you have to fill Form 8283, reporting extensively about the contribution. A different rule operates for vehicle donation and contributions above $5,000.

Volunteering Services and Time can be Deductible

Any expenses that are not refunded when you work as a volunteer can be regarded as deductible. You can claim this as long as you have the receipts and proclamation from the non-profit organization. In addition, the expenses you incur while you cater for a student living with you would qualify as deductible. When you use your car to work for a non-profit organization, you can also get a deductible on the mileage.

Donating an Old Vehicle

Giving out one's car to charity rarely qualifies one for more money than selling it off would have. However, it's far better to donate the car to a charity that will offer it to a person in need.

Donating time and items one does not use or money to charity is a wonderful way of earning tax deductions. Donating to charities has raised the suspicion that some increase donations to charity to avoid paying tax, or to pay less tax. They aren't personally better off by doing this but they are choosing where their money goes. They decide how it is spent, meaning the government doesn't.

Be sure to follow the laid down rules so as to optimize the deduction amount when donating to charity. The little time one spends familiarizing himself with these rules may result in a larger tax refund.
