The turn of a new tax year is a great time for a financial fresh start in business. However, with technology an integral part of the corporate world, and high prices attached to quality devices, working out how to balance costs isn’t easy.
Thankfully, there are methods available to ensure that you can maintain a positive cash flow throughout the tax year.
Use your time wisely
In business, time is money. The more input, the higher your returns are likely to be. But, this doesn’t have to mean working extra hours – instead you can maximise productivity by guaranteeing minimal business downtime. For example, losing data or access to your files would cause disruption, but these situations are easily avoided by using the features already available with Apple products. iCloud storage is fantastic for safely backing up data online.
You can also take advantage of Mac hacks to boost efficiency. These include speeding up your device with a handy shortcut that allows closing or switching between running applications much quicker.
Buy the device you need
Another way to boost business and costs is to ensure your devices are suited to your requirements. A Mac that works quickly and has an appropriate amount of RAM will increase efficiency. However, this may come with other features that trigger a high price.
If these functionalities aren’t valuable to your business, do your research and look into features that are truly necessary for your operations. Try to separate those that are more ‘nice to have’ than essential. This will help you to find the Mac you need: one that can perform as you require, without risking cash flow.
Spread your costs
It may be that your desired device has a price tag that could still cause you to be concerned about money. Balancing the cost of the Mac versus the cost to your business’ efficiency if you don’t purchase it will make for a difficult decision. So instead, choose an alternative: leasing.
Rather than paying a substantial capital outlay upfront, the cost can be spread over a period of time.
