Hello 2015!

Creating Goals for the Year

Now that you've had a month to brush off the dust from your eyes, let's start focusing on your goals for this year. What are they? 

Next, let's break that down into monthly targets.  If you want to make $1M this year, divide that by 12 - now 11 - and work backwards.  

It's not easy confronting the granularity - but luck won't get you there.  Well-managed planning will.  

Luck? I don’t know anything about luck. I’ve never banked on it and I’m afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: Hard work - and realizing what is opportunity and what isn’t.
— Lucille Ball

One of the best ways to plan is to use reports - financial reports. Analyzing your recent year or month can illuminate unnecessary costs or lack of profit.  

Xero's reports are easy to read and create.  If you need more job detail, then let's get you set up on WorkflowMax.  Contact us today and we can help get you going.

Wishing you a prosperous year!

Size Matters! 
Xero released over 400 updates last year! Looking forward to what's next!


Form 1099

If a business submits Form 1099 within 30 days from the due date, the penalty is $30 per form. If you file the form more than 30 days late but before Aug 1, the penalty is $60 per form. The penalty increases to $100 for any form filed afterAug 1 or not filed at all.  Use Track1099 to quickly and electronically file your forms; it integrates with Xero!
