Prices May Vary But Bartering Is Still The Best Deal!

It's very interesting to observe how industries governed by the clock, package and market their services. The importance of time takes on a new meaning when companies have to "use it or lose it." Today hoteliers are some of the more creative thinkers in regards to pricing and selling their product. They see the wisdom of selling in a variety of ways, including the bartering of their space.
Here's a look at the different ways they move their inventory:

→Super-saver rates, for those who make reservations at least 29 days in advance. (This marketing strategy is similar to the airlines.)

→Corporate rates, which typically are discounted 10% to 50% … when one shows a company ID, or even a business card.

→Discounts to members of clubs, organizations and other national affiliations such as frequent flyer plans, auto or oil-company travel clubs, and AARP senior citizens.

→Special weekend guest rates. These concessions are due to increased weekend vacancies in the big city hotels that cater to business travelers Monday through Thursday.

→Free accommodations are available from tour organizers, when one hustles up four or more paying travelers for their tours.

Hotel industry accounting firm Laventhol & Horwath reports that it's often possible to get a better hotel rate than the one posted. All you need to do is ask. (Discounts of 10% to 20% were available for the asking at one-third of 270 luxury hotels surveyed by the firm.)

For members of a trade exchange, often the easiest and best rates for hotel rooms are those acquired with trade dollars. That's because those dollars have superb leverage having been earned at your company's variable cost-of-doing business. — World's Largest Depository Of Barter Information

Time To Take Action On Profitable Year End Strategies

At year-end it is important to review the many facets of your business in order to ensure year-end profitability, recognize tax concerns, and plan for the new year ahead.
Keep in mind that barter revenues are taxable in the year they are earned. For your convenience we have listed several ways in which barter might be used for business expenses this past year. (Be sure to consult with your tax accountant.)
Client gifts
From fruit baskets, nuts and candies, to wreaths and holiday floral arrangements, it's the perfect way to thank your clients for their patronage.
Employee bonuses
Utilize barter to reward hard-working employees. Give them gifts purchased with trade dollars, or holiday bonuses where the assignment of trade dollars can be used at their discretion.
Company party
From banquet halls and catering services to decorations, barter will enable you to host an event that is both enjoyable and affordable.
Entertainment scrip
Give the gift that everyone will enjoy, scrip that is redeemable at restaurants and hotels in your area.
Charitable contributions
Barter income is taxable in the year it is earned. You might consider making a tax-deductible contribution of trade dollars to non-profit organizations that will accept your trade dollar donation. You may also designate a charitable group of your choice, and ask your trade broker to establish an account for them.
