Firstly, let us take the time to wish all our clients and friends a very happy and prosperous New Year. 2020 comes to us all with a lot of uncertainty but we will weather any financial storms that may result from Brexit with our patented Irish resilience. As we have bid farewell to the previous decade and turned the page into a new one, thoughts often turn to change and what we can do to change our selves, our positions in life and our career trajectory. We here at EcovisDCA know that all of our clients and friends are incredibly hard working and focused and as such do not wish to start the decade off on a negative footing with a list of changes to be made, rather we have decided to focus on solutions to make your business and financial life run smoother in the years ahead.
Update your Payroll System:
As we are all aware, there has been a major overhaul to the PAYE system that has recently come into effect in Ireland. We have discussed these changes in detail in the past, and how they will affect the day to day running of your business, and whilst your payroll staff have long been setting up for this event, it is a good idea to start this new decade off with a review of your new system in case there are ways in which it can be more efficient for you. These PAYE changes are the perfect opportunity to update your current payroll software if needed.
2019, The Year in Review:
Whilst it is important not to dwell entirely on the past, whether 2019 was a more positive or negative financial year for your business it is essential to take a glance into the rearview mirror and assess how your finances were in 2019. Perhaps there are areas here that can be utilised more to your benefit.
Goals, Goals, Goals:
A new year always comes with new personal goals, and a new decade is the perfect opportunity to set some business and financial goals for your business. What are the daily/weekly/monthly steps you can take over the next 12 months to get your business closer to that end goal? Goals can be an essential method of planning out the future of your business.
As we have spoken about before, Revenue have been overhauling their tax systems and clamping down on evasion and late filing. As we start this new year, take note of all the essential deadlines for the coming year and begin working towards meeting them.
These are just some small ideas to start this new decade of your business off on a positive and energetic note and start as you mean to go on.
Should you have any concerns or queries on any business or financial matters, please don’t hesitate to contact us here at EcovisDCA. We are looking forward to working with you all during the new roaring 20’s.
