Industry sector: Business services

Accountant: General expenses

Every month you are likely to spend some money on different goods and services for your business. These might include:

  • external contract cleaners or cleaning materials
  • window cleaner
  • subscription to a professional journal
  • repairs and maintenance
  • supplies for a staff rest room

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.
