Having a collaborative team has a direct impact on how well an organization functions.

Good teamwork helps improve creativity as employees are able to exchange ideas in order to arrive at the best solution. Also, the individual members in a team may have their own strengths and weaknesses, so each individual is able to bring his/ her talents to the table.

There are many associated challenges when it comes to managing a team such as conflicts, internal politics and lack of trust all of which contribute in bringing the team down. Teams that donโ€™t work together will struggle to perform.

The Statement of Profit and Loss (also known as P/L) summarizes the revenues, costs and expenses incurred during a specific period of time, usually a fiscal quarter or year. It is one of the four main financial statements.

The P/L is important because it helps a businessman to evaluate its performance and provides a basis for forecasting future performance.

Most owners tend to only look at the bottom line and fail to do much with the P/L beyond that. This article provides you some tips on how to read a P/L just like an accountant would, so that you can make sound financial decisions based on that.

A monthly review of your P/L would prove to be invaluable and it doesnโ€™t have to take a lot of time if you have the right tools available.

Managing employee expense reimbursements

It is normal for employees to pay for work related expenses out of their pocket. As an employer you would have to ensure that these expenses are duly reimbursed and hence the need for you to have an employee reimbursement policy at your organisation.

Having a policy in place will act as a safeguard from fraud as there is a possibility that employees may claim fictitious expenses, manipulate bills or submit bills relating to personal expenses. Moreover it would improve overall efficiency as employees would be less likely to submit claims for expenses that are not covered by the policy.

Tips to effectively manage employee expense reimbursements;

โ–บ Define reimbursable expenses

โ–บ Establish limits

โ–บ Set out a process

โ–บ Track expenses

Its worthwhile analysing the status of inflation in the economy. It is also important to understand and interpret the impact of inflation to your business ( source )

In todayโ€™s post we summarise important areas to consider ; with reference to a recent article published on the analysis of inflation in the Australian economy. This analysis manly covers the price inflation of essential goods , discretionary goods and the knock on impact towards residual impact.

From 2005 to 2020, the price of essential goods have inflated with a hike of 61.4%. Considering discretionary goods during the same period is 38.6%. Major contributor for discretionary items price increase is in to***co ( to***co is considered as a discretionary good); price increase in other goods excluding to***co is closer to 18%.

This significant price variance may have a dramatic impact on low-income households. They will cut down expenditure on other basic requirements (cloths, accommodation etc). They will continue to consume essential goods at the prevailing price.

If you are not in the essential goods industry; you need to revisit your pricing strategy and eliminate unnecessary costs and overheads. At the same time if you are in the essential goods related industry; increasing the price will not be the best decision you should take this moment. You should have a fair understanding of the current demand for your products and its forecasted demand.

Fraud refers to the use of deception to dishonestly make a personal gain for oneself and/or create a loss for another.

According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), the worldโ€™s largest anti fraud organization, it is small and medium sized businesses that are the most susceptible to organizational fraud.

The fewer anti fraud controls at small businesses could be a reason for the increased fraud risk that small businesses face.

โ–บ Hire the right employees

โ–บ Donโ€™t let one employee handle all the work

โ–บ Review the business bank accounts

โ–บ Carry out audits

โ–บ Train your employees
