Enjoy The Holiday Season While
Engaging In 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. (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 a hard-working employee. Give your employees gifts
purchased with trade dollars, or holiday bonuses where the
assignment of trade dollars can be used at their discretion.
party. From banquet halls and catering services to decorations,
barter will enable you to host an event that is both enjoyable
Entertainment scrip. Give the gift
that everyone will enjoy, scrip that is redeemable at
restaurants and hotels in your area.
2) 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 who
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.
3) Future planning:
Every executive needs time to plan
for the new year. So think about where you can host a management
retreat to prepare for the upcoming year.
4) Future advertising & promotions:
Now is the time to plan and
implement a comprehensive media campaign for the new year. You
may opt to pre-pay for advertising and promotions, and expense
it out in the present tax year.
5) Capital Expenditures:
Whether it is roof repair, office
expansion, new office equipment, or items for the warehouse, it
is a very costly yet necessary expenditure for business growth.
Barter may be the solution to conserving your cash while
improving your facility. You may also opt to pre-pay service
contracts for the upcoming year.

profitable year-end barter strategies contact your trade broker.

focus, you can temporarily reduce your anger level — and
hopefully keep from doing or saying things you'll regret.

impact anger has on health. Tirades increase the chances
that someone will attack you; they can boost blood pressure,
trigger premature heart attacks plus lead to ulcers,
strokes, and digestive problems.
♠ Loosen up! Don't
be so easily offended by another's actions. You can't
control others, but you can control yourself.
