What shape are your end-of-year accounts in?

Posted by Kirsten Hawke at Thursday, March 01, 2018

The end of the financial year can be either stressful or a seamless part of what you do. 
Ideally, your end-of-year accounts will confirm what you think your business has been doing for the past 12 months.

Being prepared is the key to avoiding end-of-year financial drama and stress.

  1. First make sure you have all the documents we’ll need, such as PAYE statements, bank statements showing interest earned, dividend statements for shares, and receipts for expenses. Don’t forget receipts for charitable donations.

  2. Look at writing off old debts. Scrap redundant or worthless assets, so you get a deduction on your books.

  3. Print out profit and loss, balance sheet and general ledger listing reports and store them safely.

  4. Have a final look at your payroll reports. You don't have to give summaries to your staff, but if you give them Earning Certificates, they can be used to check IRD information.

  5. Note odometer readings on vehicles and ensure logbooks noting business and personal use, mileage and costs etc. are in order.

  6. Dispose of obsolete stock by the year end or write it down to its net realisable value.

  7. Talk to your accountant about any planned dividend payments, as managing imputation credits will be important.

Our Number Nurses® are on hand to point you in the right direction or to provide end of year relief.

Let's talk expense claims

Posted by Kirsten Hawke at Tuesday, January 30, 2018

Anjini, our East Auckland Number Nurse® would like to talk Expense Claims this month - here is what she has to say:

- An expense claim is a collection of receipts from personal spending that needs to be reimbursed by the business. Each user in your organisation, with a role other than Read Only, can add receipts to record their expenses. They can then submit an expense claim to be reviewed and approved by a user with the required user role.

- To add a receipt to an expense claim, go Accounts, select Expenses Claims, then click Add Receipt.  Complete the rest of the details in the remaining fields and attach a copy of the receipt.  And SAVE.

- To submit an expense claim for approval go back into the claim and select Submit for Approval and OK.
 
It’s a great and easy way for employees and business owners to record and claim any expenses and attach the receipts and invoices to prove the claim.

Find out more about Expense Claims in Xero here or contact Anjini today to lend a helping hand.

7 wise habits to strengthen the relationship with your team

Posted by Kirsten Hawke at Thursday, November 02, 2017

No one wants to go to work every day dreading the amount of time they are going to spend with his or her boss. 

At the same time, I don’t know any sane leader who looks forward to having bad relationships with team members. 
So the question then becomes, why are so many relationships between team members and their leader a major part of the reason people are unhappy at work?

The answer: Most leaders have the equation wrong.   

John Eades tells us why and gives us the right equation to be a great leader.
