Every month you are likely to spend some money on different goods and services for your practice. These might include:
- computer supplies
- external contract cleaners or cleaning materials
- window cleaner
- subscription to a professional journal (some trade associations, such as the International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists, include subscription to a professional journal as a benefit of membership)
- laundry services
- repairs and maintenance
Make an estimate of the amount you are likely to spend on general expenses every month.
Once your business is up and running do not forget to record what you spend on general expenses and keep receipts wherever possible.
