Every month you are likely to spend some money on different goods and services for your business. These might include:
- protective clothing and/or uniforms for staff
- subscription to a trade journal
- repairs and maintenance to your premises, vehicles or equipment
- hand cleaning products
- computer supplies
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.
