Driveways and patios: General expenses

Every month you are likely to spend some money on different goods and services for your paving business. For example, these might include:

  • trade association membership subscriptions
  • subscription to a trade journal
  • tea, coffee and provisions for yourself and your staff
  • computer and general business sundries

Make an estimate of the amount you are likely to spend on general expenses every month.

Once your business is up and running, don't forget to record what you spend on general expenses - and keep receipts wherever possible.
