I expect many of you are aware of Checkatrade and use their site. I spotted a useful blog recently which I thought I should share with you as it concerns ways in which small businesses like yours can save money.
1. Switch your energy supplier and save pounds. Business energy can be a huge expense. If you stick to the same supplier year after year you run the risk of paying outdated rates. If you use a site such as Love Energy Savings you can compare rates and potentially save pounds.
2. Shop around for business insurance. The same applies to business insurance. Studying the market and regularly switching helps you get the best deal and saves your business money. Take a look at the Simply Business website for a starter.
3. Reduce your transport bills. There are a couple of easy things you can do to cut your business fuel bills. Firstly, make your car or van as energy efficient as possible. This means looking at the small details. Even checking your tyres are inflated to the correct pressure can lead to a 3% reduction. Don’t fill your petrol tank to the top and think about leaving heavy items out of your vehicle unless they are essential. Secondly, check where you can get fuel at the cheapest price by visiting PetrolPrices.com.
If you are looking to make your business more cost efficient in 2019, then you really should be considering these tips.
