Every month you are likely to spend some money on different goods and services for your business. These might include:
- computer supplies
- flowers, magazines, pictures and so on to brighten up the waiting room
- external contract cleaners
- window cleaner
- subscription to a trade journal
- general 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 - even for small items.
