Bookkeeping tip of the week:
The dreaded but crucial decision of when to appoint a bookkeeper or an accountant is this week's tip.
Bookkeeper or Accountant (Kill two birds with one stone and find a Bookkeeper who can also provide financial analysis of your company data)
You should preferably appoint a Bookkeeper as you start trading to avoid extra fees when the documentation gets too much to organise.
Bookkeepers charge a per hour rate, find the one who offers affordable and quality work by speaking to previous clients before signing anything. Over a long-term relation, discuss preferential fixed rates with your Bookkeeper for doing your processing, taxes, annual financials, management accounts and operational management services and advice. This will save you costs as your entity will grow and a variable rate per hour based on the volume of transactions will be costly in the future before deciding to hire in-house.
So, why appoint a Bookkeeper? Of cause you can DIY but the expert advice from a affordable/quality service orientated Bookkeeper will save you thousands if not millions by correctly looking after your finances in line with Generally Accepted Accounting Practices/IFRS etc.
If you are looking for a Bookkeeper, sms the word "BOOK" to +264-81 223 8920 and let Dc Hostadt Bookkeepers cc "keep you organised for growth".

Bookkeeping tip of the week:
Bookkeeping is the day-to-day struggle up the mountain (financial year) till you reach the summit of your business or individual goal(s)! Below are 5 tips to keep you organised for growth:
(i) Do not mix business with pleasure (keep separate bank accounts)
(ii) Organise your paperwork (keep envelopes for each type of expense for ease of filling and processing by your bookkeeper). This tip will save you thousands of dollars in accounting and audit fees!!!
(iii) Cash is king, keep track of who paid you and when
(iv) Do not procrastinate points (i) - (iii) till your returns, good standing certificates or tender applications are due :-)
(v) When in doubt, seek professional advice (accounting can be stressful if you do not know how to balance the books)
Entrepreneurship is driven by great ideas and a bookkeeper will free up your time to create great opportunities for new businesses backed by sound financials.

Bookkeeping tip of the week:
Bookkeeping is like learning the piano, hard to learn but easy to master! Below are 8 tips to keep you organised for growth:
Use the right software -
Automate your recurring invoicing -
Do not mix business with pleasure -
Keep it simple -
Schedule important routine reports -
Customise your routine reports -
Use an affordable payroll service -
Hire a bookkeeper to make sure points 1 to 7 are done correctly:-)
The peace of mind and time a bookkeeper saves you to man yet another crucial task with your limited time is vital for the success of your enterprise.
Entrepreneurship is focused on the bottomline and bookkeeping will tell you exactly how low/high your bottomline is.

Bookkeeping tip of the week:
(A) Start off on the right foot - make a habit to review your books on a weekly and monthly basis (daily is a very good habit:-)
(B) Learn the lingo - yes, debits and credits are there for a reason and you should know it (ask your bookkeeper for a crash course, accountants love to teach)
(C) Find software that fits your business needs - no need for SAP if pastel, quick books, or excel will do (avoid being too manual, it is the 21st century)
(D) Value good advice - if you are an entrepreneur, focus on your talent to expand your business and let your accountant keep you organised for that growth

Bookkeeping tip of the week:
Significantly increase your profits;
1. Make effective business decisions -
properly allocated financial data will enable quick decisions
2. Cash flow control -
accurate bookkeeping gives you insight on the in and outflows of your business.
3. Time to grow your business -
if you are not a bookkeeper, get one and free up your valuable time to grow your business which only you can do best.
4. Save money on potential audits -
regular bookkeeping and a good filling system will save you time and money when the Receiver of Revenue wants to audit your accounting records for VAT of related taxes.
5. Save money at tax time -
regular bookkeeping and a good filling system will save you time and money when you hand in your annual tax returns before their due dates.

Remember that the definition of trade in the Income Tax includes EVERY profession, trade, business, employment, occupation, venture, property letting, right to use any patent, copyright, design, trademark or asset similar in nature which from case law can be a once off or repetitive action with a profit motive.
i.e. that when you are "trading" as stated above, remember that the Income Tax Act of Namibia will apply to you as well.
The Income Tax act of Namibia applies to ANY company, corporation or association whether legally registered under any law in Namibia or elsewhere (deemed from a Namibian source).
i.e. that it applies to registered sole proprietaries, partnerships, cc's, private and public companies, unit trusts, benefit associations with certain exclusions.
[05/07/13] Except for profits on the sale of mining licenses/rights, there is no tax on capital gains nor on donations in Namibia as opposed to the South African tax regime. i.e that the profit you make on the sale of property (house,car,etc) is not taxable. Similarly for cash or cash equivalent you in/voluntarily give away (donate) is also not taxable.
Namibia enjoys a source-based tax system versus residency that taxes the income of taxpayers from or deemed (assumed) to be from a Namibian source.
Juristic person (company) taxes range from 13.6%, 18%, 34%, 35%, 37.5% and 55%. Long term insurers pay the least tax of 13.6% while diamond mining pays the most tax of 55% to the kitty of the receiver of revenue (ROR).
There is vast difference in having a business generate profits during a specific period and still have insufficient funds to meet their daily or monthly supplier/employee payments.
Sound control of the working capital cycle is key to the success of businesses trading in goods while service sectors manage their client satisfaction levels more stringently, in addition.
Contact DCHB on working capital management techniques.
