Besides using them for your personal life, New Year’s resolutions also come in handy for business. As the year draws to a close, taking stock of what you’re doing to improve your company’s performance is essential. Here are five ways your business can start the new year off right.

Think About Incorporating

During the year-end, it’s also an excellent time to reflect on your company’s accomplishments. One of the most common forms of business that small businesses use is a sole proprietorship. If you’re considering incorporating, it’s essential to consider the taxes that would be required to be paid if you convert to an LLC or corporation. Having an effective January 1st date can make the preparation of financial statements easier.

Review Tax Papers

You should make time to review your tax documents and address any issues that may come up with the IRS. Tax advisers can help determine if you can take advantage of additional deductions. Doing so can help you save money on taxes.

Look Over Business Documents

Take the time to clean out your business documents and update your Business Plan. Doing so can help ensure they’re in good condition when you return to work in the new year. Having the necessary paperwork in order can help ensure your business runs smoothly. In addition to maintaining a good record of your business activities, you should also regularly update your licenses and other permits.

Give Your Employees Feedback

Your employees are vital to the success of your company. At the end of the year, make sure that all of them have their annual evaluations. Also, make sure that you have the necessary policies and contracts in place, such as an Employee Handbook. A good record of your activities can help keep the organization running smoothly.

Create New Goals

The last quarter of the year is a great time to review and analyze your company’s performance. It’s also essential to assess if the business is moving in the right direction and if its current practices are adequate. Doing so can help you set goals for the new year and make minor adjustments.

Sales, in the end, is a contact sport, a numbers game, and the best person to provide the most value, consistently, wins.
