Learn what the 5 most popular tax and staffing tips are that can improve your business decisions in 2008.

Revenue in and revenue out. The balance is profit. "This sounds simple, but you and I know that managing cash flow is anything but straight forward in today's world of business," remarks Lou Olivieri, Chief Operating Officer with Business Performance Solutions (BPS). "And then when your business makes a profit those funds pay for taxes, staff, and much more. So, what can you do to take control of your tax and staffing decisions?"

Below are five popular tax and staffing tips from the experts at BPS that can improve your business decisions in 2008:

  • Before tax season arrives evaluate your needs. If you can utilize software, identify a package that supports your business model and will allow you to complete everything in one shot by e-filing.
  • Minimize your tax burden and save money by hiring a really good accountant. Although software can be helpful, it does not do the return for you. Remember you might still need help from a tax professional, depending on how complex your return will be.
  • Consider the addition of staff after you have determined if existing employees can be reassigned without being overwhelmed. If the goal is to lightening your current employees load, investing in technology (e.g., contact management software, smart phones, and laptops) could be a valuable solution.
  • Testing the waters by hiring a qualified, temporary, or freelance employee may be an advantage. Especially if you do this with an eye towards hiring them permanently and test out the position itself to make sure it will help your business.
  • Think about ways you may be able to train staff online. This can be positive on several levels. Initially you will bring new hires up to speed quickly and longer term, you will be able to retain employees and help them grow their careers while they help build your business.
