Due to the busy holiday season, many small businesses cannot fully take care of their business end-of-year tasks. Owners must set aside time over the holiday season to do these tasks. Doing so will allow you to position your company for a strong start to 2023. Here is an end-of-year checklist for your business.

Revenue Goals

Most business owners start the year setting goals for their revenue. They then review these goals every quarter to see how they’re doing. Having a good idea of how they’re doing can help them make adjustments and reach their goals at the end of the year. With less than a month left in the year, it’s essential to take a final look at whether or not you’re on track.

Financial Reports

Having a financial report for the year is also a good idea to keep track of how your business is doing. It can help you keep track of all of the essential details of your business, such as your cash flow and profit and loss statements. A comprehensive financial report is critical to keep track of, as it can help you adjust and reach your goals.

Updating Staff Information

Before the end of the year, it’s also a good idea to review the information that you have on your employees. For instance, if you have the correct phone numbers and addresses, you should have an updated list of all your employees. You can also update your new hires’ status by looking at their access to the company’s financial information and computer systems.

Physical Inventory

An annual physical inventory is essential if your business is operating year-round. This can help you track what products are selling well and which aren’t. Having a steady supply of products can also help you avoid overstocks, as many suppliers will gladly exchange their goods for something you can quickly turn over.

Evaluate Company Website

Unfortunately, many small businesses don’t pay much attention to their website regarding retaining and selling their products. You must regularly update it to keep it up-to-date and relevant to your customers. Having a well-designed and updated website can help you attract more potential customers and keep track of all of your current activities.
