Day to Day Operations of a Business: Paying for Expenses
Another important thing to remember when paying for business expenses is to pay for them separately from your personal expenses. Keeping your business and personal expenses paid separately will not only ensure accurate records but will also save you a lot of time and money on your bookkeeping and corporate year end. One of the simplest ways to do this is to have a business debit or credit card and a personal debit or credit card with you at all times. Having both cards within reach at all times will ensure that you will be able to pay expenses with the right card – whether it is for business or personal.
Also, always let your business pay for its own expenses even when the company does not have funds to pay. One way to do this is to personal write a cheque or transfer funds to the company and let the business pay for the expense. Remember, this is a shareholder loan!
