Have a great business idea but not sure how to get started? A business plan is an important strategic tool, and writing one should be your first step!

You might be wondering WHY a business plan is so important. Here are just a few reasons:

👉 It clearly outlines your strategy through each stage of launching your business.

👉 As your business road map, it will help you set achievable goals and high-level milestones. It will also help you make key business decisions, like how to spend money.

👉 It shows that you’re serious about your business and helps to communicate your vision. This is especially critical if you’re planning to seek funding or enter into a partnership.

Your business plan should be customized to fit your unique business!

If you have any questions about writing a business plan, the Oregon SBDC Network provides no-cost, confidential advising for entrepreneurs and small business owners.

For small businesses that report their taxes on a cash basis, you may be able to reduce this year’s tax bill by deferring income to the following year.

As we near the end of the year, if there are invoices you haven’t sent to customers or receivables that you haven’t yet collected, you could consider waiting until January of 2023 so that income won’t be taxable on your 2022 return.

On the other hand, if you expect profits to grow enough to put you in a higher tax bracket in 2023, consider collecting income in 2022 rather than deferring it to a higher tax year.

Be sure to talk to your tax advisor to determine what makes the most sense for your specific situation!

For guidance on a variety of topics related to your small business, the Oregon SBDC Network is here to support you. Visit OregonSBDC.org for more information.
