Why small can be good in business and medium not so good
There are many benefits in being a small business in Australia and why going over the threshold in turnover or wages maybe not worth it. I am not a lawyer or an accountant, this is just food for thought. Before becoming a medium size business, have a think about whether it is worth it. When you have a business that is going great guns, stop and think is it worth it. Will making my business a medium size business pay off. It might pay to split the business or make changes to keep it a small business. Sometimes you find out the 80 20 rule takes effect; 50% percent of your revenue comes from 20% of your customers. What if I found a way to move the 80 % of my customers to another company that focused on those customers and I focused on building the 20% to 40%? More money from less revenue, that can’t be a bad thing?
What sort of small business is better for me?
There are businesses that can give you a great return on less than 3 million of income. One way of looking at it is work out your return required and then look for your business. There are many businesses that have EBIT’s around the one mark. In many cases these businesses do need experience in the area and can be quite competitive.
Sometimes small is good.
