Keeping Financial Records & The Importance of Building Networks
January 17, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Aged 18 – 24? Does the thought of keeping your financial records in check as a new business fill you with dread? In this session as part of the Ladders Enterprise Support series with Enterprise Mentor Lee Casey receive practical advice from Blu Sky Tax on what record books you need to keep and why. Including setting up your accounting and management records, accounting software, personal tax compliance in terms of completing self assessment and considering National Insurance and VAT. Many an entrepreneur has recognised their skill set perhaps doesn’t extend to finance, the creative ideas are definitely there but keeping a check on it all, well it can be a daunting prospect! Keeping accurate records can help with applying for funding too, and using external experts they can liase with banks or funding streams on your behalf.
Networking if done effectively can be a considerable asset to any business, helping to build up professional connections across a number of different layers to your business, but connections which foster trust and cultivate new relationships, ultimately helping to generate sales, create business leads and encourage growth by opening doors for you that otherwise could not be opened. There are a vast number of professional networking organisations within the North East, which could be relevant to you and your business because of their locality, or the industry in which they are positioned. Networking can take many forms from breakfast meetings, to online seminars to one to one introductions. We will be welcoming some of the regions influential networkers to drop in through out this session too!
Ladders is aimed at helping 18-24 year olds get a foot in the door. Over the course of 12 weeks, you’ll work with an industry mentor to develop your skills in either film, music or software development. You’ll learn valuable employability skills, develop your CV, visit local companies, and build that all-important network.
The next Ladders course starts in February 2018. If you’d like to know more about how we can help you kick start your career then visit our website HERE or feel free to message me with enquiries at firstname.lastname@example.org
