As we approach the end of another very busy and eventful year, it’s time to reflect, to celebrate achievements, to set our plans for the future and an year-end review for your business does just that and more. At LAS Accounting Ltd, we are invested in working with business owners who value their time and who are all in for financial freedom. This is why if you are an energetic business owner who feels that maybe 2023 could have been better, then an year-end review for your business is a great way to reflect on what worked, what didn’t work as well as on what’s next.
In this article, we’ll share our ideas for conducting a year end review for your business as well as for yourself. And of course, if you need our support with the financial part, we’re here to help and ready for you to get in touch.
Celebrate your wins
Do you remember your first sale? How about the moment you hit your profit target ? Every win in business deserves celebration and the end of the year is a great way to look back on what you achieved – even if it wasn’t planned, and even if it seems like a tiny win – so that you acknowledge that your hard work paid off. Celebrating your wins is a morale booster, it keeps you motivated and focused. Your wins are probably closely connected to the reason you are in business in the first place.
Learn and become better
Ok, 2023 wasn’t a walk in the park. And just like life, running a business can be a bit of a rollercoaster. Your end of year review gives you a great opportunity to assess what worked well and what can be improved for the future. Take a look into your numbers and see where things went brilliantly as well as those areas that might benefit from a change of strategy. Your numbers tell a story and the insights you glean from a review can have a meaningful impact on your decisions for the future. In this way you can implement a clear strategy for achieving your goals.
Set goals for the future
And we’re not just talking business goals, we’re talking personal goals, too. Your business’ success isn’t just about spreadsheets, Quickbooks, HMRC compliance or any other accounting Scrooge, it’s about building a business that meets your personal goals, a business that is profitable for you and gives you the financial freedom you’ve always dreamed of.
Did you really have the year you hoped for personally? What could be better next year? Your accountant can help you make sense of your numbers so you can focus on how they help you achieve your life goals.
Take control of your finances
Many business owners simply don’t review their finances and this is why they lose on many counts. However, as you’ve read this far, we’ll assume you’re not one of those people. It’s easy to bury your head in the sand when it comes to your finances. If everything is paid on time, it can be tempting not to look any deeper, but taking some time to conduct a year-end review for your business is a great way to start as you mean to go on. Whatever happened up to this moment in time, having a view of where you are right now means you can take control of your finances for the future. A solid financial foundation is the backbone of your business, which in turn is made to get you to enjoy the lifestyle that you want.
Seeking support with your numbers and with your business strategy is always a profitable investment. On the one hand, you free up time to enjoy what you love doing and to spend time with your family. On the other hand, you get peace of mind knowing that your business is bringing in the profit that you want.
Reach out to your accountant as your go-to partner for all things financial, and we, for one, would love to support you in conducting your own end-of-year review for your business, to plan your goals, address your concerns and discuss new ways you can grow your business in 2024. Whether the calendar year end is the same as your financial year end or not, this time of year is a great time naturally to sit and take a look at exactly what’s going on behind the spreadsheet.
As we wish 2023 farewell, we’d love to raise a toast to you and your business and a new year of exciting growth.
