Antique dealer: General expenses

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

  • subscription to a trade journal
  • trade association membership fees
  • window cleaner
  • sundries like wax polish and other materials used for restoration and repairs
  • repairs and maintenance to premises and equipment

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.
