Build Your Wealth Using Barter
While sad, but true, many people in the U.S. will earn over $1
million during their lifetime yet will have nothing to show for
their efforts at retirement. Obviously the time to plan for the
future is now, because no one wants to take a severe pay-cut when
One way to get an investment program going is
to add one more debt to your stack of bills each month. Begin by
writing a check to your savings account, or add a little money
regularly to a money market fund.
Another way is through
your trade exchange. As a trade exchange member, you can utilize the
many investor services (for personal and professional use) of the
accountants, attorneys, financial consultants, bookkeeping and tax
services, estate planners, real estate brokers and others whenever
you are building your wealth.
Then, by using your products
or services as a medium of exchange, begin acquiring some of the
investment opportunities available on barter — such as:
- Real estate

How To Get Maximum Deduction On
Using trade dollars to secure business gifts certainly makes
sense. After all, they build goodwill and valuable name recognition,
which ultimately converts into increased sales. These gifts are
tax-deductible too, so long as they're business related.
There is one catch however — the deduction for gifts is limited to
$25 per year, for each recipient. Anything above that amount may not
be deducted. Twenty-five dollars doesn't go very far these days, so
the key to obtaining maximum deductions for business gifts is to
choose, whenever practical, another category for the gift.
When possible expense your gifts as "entertainment" or
"advertising," since these categories have no ceiling for legitimate
deductions. Many giveaways legally fall into the advertising
category. Such items include door prizes, handout and direct mail
samples, awards for subscription sales, uniforms for a baseball
team, and contest prizes.
If prizes or awards were given to
employees, however, they usually would be tax-deductible as
"compensation" expenses. And employee bonuses are almost uniformly
considered to be compensation, regardless of whether they are
incentive or seasonal.
(For more specific information on this
topic consult with your CPA.)
