With many businesses being on pause at the moment it may seem the right thing to do to pause yourself and take a step away from it all. However, that is the opposite of what you should be doing. This downtime is the absolute perfect time to analyse your business and prepare for the future. Time doing this would otherwise have detracted from your valuable working hours. However, if you do it at the moment you aren’t falling behind as none of your competitors are back and trading. So what areas of your business should you be looking at? Well, one area is accounting.
Crunch the numbers
Now is the perfect time to look at your accounting to assess how you were doing as a business. In the heat of the day to day business, certain things may have been overlooked in the past. Have a look to see if you were actually turning a profit, what debts does the business have? How have your forecasts for the next few years changed? These are all questions you should be asking yourself and finding the answers for at the moment. Once you have found the answers you can then look for solutions to these problems. For example, if your business is spending too much, going forward, where you can make savings? Could a return to a new normal end up actually saving your business money in certain areas?
