Burglar alarm fitter: General expenses

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

  • computer supplies
  • trade association membership fees
  • subscription to a trade journal
  • repairs and maintenance
  • tea and coffee for yourself and any staff

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.
