Ice cream parlour: General expenses

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

  • contract cleaner and/or window cleaner (most retail and food premises have their windows cleaned regularly)
  • subscription to a trade journal
  • trade association membership fees
  • repairs and maintenance
  • computer supplies 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 do not forget to record what you spend on general expenses and keep receipts wherever possible.
