Go kart track: General expenses

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

  • helmets, overalls and gloves for your customers. These won't be treated with much care, so may need replacing on a fairly frequent basis
  • computer supplies
  • external contract cleaners
  • subscription to a trade association
  • repairs and maintenance to the track and the centre in general

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.
