From issuing W-2s to renewing your business license, business owners have a lot to think about at the beginning of a new year. Use our short, but handy checklist to get your year started off on the right foot.
- Renew your business license – most counties/cities require you to renew your business license BEFORE you actually start the new calendar year. Check with your state and local small business associations for a complete list of requirements and timelines.
- Renew your credentials – If you have a professional license of any kind you probably have Continuing Education Credits that you have to receive in order to maintain good standing with the board. Check the requirements now and stay ahead of the schedule so you don’t miss out on opportunities that fit your schedule.
- Check the current market conditions – What’s going on in your neck of the woods? It may be a good time to seize the opportunity to expand your current footprint or you may want to think about relocating to a more profitable submarket/neighborhood. Stay tuned for our 2018 Q4 Market Report at the end of January which will help quickly bring you up to speed on the market conditions in your specific area.
- Review your lease – Your lease is full of critical dates that you may not even be aware of. Check to see if you have an upcoming renewal option that you can exercise on your current space. This means you could have another set of negotiations coming your way. Contact DTSpade today to help you navigate your critical dates and lease negotiations.
